Woking v Harrogate Town

Here's an assessment of how Simon Weaver's men performed during their 1-0 loss at the Kingfield Stadium. PICTURES: MATT KIRKHAM.

James Belshaw 7. Couldn't do anything about Woking's deflected goal and didn't put a foot wrong otherwise. Made a good save from Ibrahim Meite.
Warren Burrell 6. Put some decent balls into the box and got forward well from right-back, maintaining the pressure with tackles high up the pitch.
Will Smith 7. Another promising display from Town's young centre-back. Dealt with everything that came his way, but booked for a challenge on Kane Ferdinand.
Connor Hall 7. Defended very well against a strong and quick Woking front-line, particularly in the air. Also looked composed in possession
George Smith 6. Solid at the back, got forward well down the left with one ball to substitute Jon Stead almost creating an opening.
Brendan Kiernan 7. Went close to creating a goal with some clever footwork and a cross towards Jack Muldoon. Town's biggest threat from open play.
Lloyd Kerry 6. Got around the pitch well alongside Josh Falkingham before being forced off with what looked like a bad ankle injury in the 66th minute.
Joe Leesley 7. Put plenty of balls into the box, including one for Jack Muldoon, which led to the best Town chance of the game. Will have been disappointed not to have created an equaliser.
Josh Falkingham 8. ADVERTISER STAR MAN. One of those occasions where the Town skipper takes the game by the scruff of the neck. Particularly influential in the second 45. Saw a late strike blocked.
Mark Beck 6. Probably his quietest game of the season so far, was well-marked by the Woking defence and couldn't get on the end of any of the deliveries that came his way.
Jack Muldoon 6. Went closer than any Town player to equalising with a header that was tipped onto the bar at the end of the first half, but will be disappointed to have missed his side's biggest chance eight minutes earlier.
