It was the cliched game of two halves for Woking on Tuesday night, with Cards’ boss Alan Dowson left questioning his team’s hunger to beat Aldershot Town in the second 45 on Tuesday evening.
Woking went into the clash with their local rivals full of confidence after starting life back in the National League’s top tier with a 2-0 away win at Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday, Kane Ferdinand and Moussa Diarra netting in either half.
“In the first half I thought we were very good and should have been four up with the chances we had,” Dowson said.
“But I thought we didn’t have any hunger in the second half. I don’t know whether we should have changed things but we didn’t and there was a lack of fight in the second half.
“I was pleased at half-time believe it or not. I thought we played very, very well in the first half. If Tarps [Dave Tarpey] scores and [Josh] Casey has a chance with a header and then the disallowed goal – I think if we’d got one of those we would have gone on to win the game.
“They [Aldershot] did a good job and fair play to their bloke, they’ve come here and wasted time and things that all managers do.
“I’ll look at the video [for the disallowed goal] but I did think their corner was our ball on the far side, but I thought the referee was rubbish tonight to be honest, like my team.”
