Hartlepool United were denied an away victory in front of the TV cameras through a last-minute Woking equaliser.
Kevin Phillips named an unchanged team from last weekend’s win at Bromley, and they got off to the perfect start at the Laithwaite Community Stadium.
Pools enjoyed a great period of a possession, resulting in David Ferguson hooking a low cross into Joe Grey to tap home at the front post.
The visitors continued to press in the opening stages and could’ve added a second in the 24th minute.
Callum Cooke led the way for a Pools counter-attack and fed Grey, but the striker couldn’t take advantage in front of goal as the goalkeeper saved low.
The resulting corner from Nicky Featherstone hit an on-rushing Mani Dieseruvwe, who powerfully headed over the target.
With 33 on the clock, Pools thought they made it two. Tom Crawford met a ball from the right and his header crossed the line, but it was ruled out for a foul.
At the other end, Dennon Lewis jinked through the Pools defence before forcing a point-blank save from Joel Dixon in the Hartlepool goal.
Woking pushed forward in the second half but Dixon wasn’t tested until the 91st minute.
The Pools keeper made a tremendous save initially, but the visitors failed to clear their lines and Lewis Walker fired home from close-range.
After settling for a point on the road, Pools now turn their attention to Boreham Wood at home next weekend.
