Woking 0 King's Lynn Town 3

Gold Omotayo scored his fifth goal in as many games as Lynn put their National League relegation behind them to win their penultimate fixture of the campaign.

Omotayo opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time after before Tyler Denton and substitute Ken Charles registered their first goals of the season in the second half to soften the blow of going down.

There was little to choose between the two sides in the first half until Omotayo dispossessed Tom Champion to slot home the opener as the interval loomed.

The Linnets had to withstand some heavy pressure from the Cards who dominated long periods of the second half.

Nicke Kabamba and substitute Inih Effiong both had the ball in the Lynn net, but saw their efforts ruled out for offside.

Lynn's second goal five minutes from time was down to the industry of Cameron Hargreaves who ran in behind the Woking backline and squared the ball to Denton to tap home at the back post.

Deep into stoppage time Charles, who had replaced Josh Barrett minutes earlier, pounced on a short pass from Josh Casey before rounding Mark Smith to net from an acute angle.
