Matty Taylor scored twice in injury time to earn Forest Green Rovers a dramatic victory over Woking.

The visitors went ahead just before half-time after Jamie Turley brought down Loick Pires in the box and Kevin Betsy converted the resulting penalty.

Magno Vieira's strike made it 1-1 and the game looked set to end in a draw.

But Taylor headed home Phil Marsh's cross in the 92nd minute before latching on to James Norwood's centre two minutes later.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Forest Green Rovers manager Dave Hockaday told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"It's good that we're scoring goals and it's good that we're scoring them late if that is what it takes.

"We just keep on going and passing until teams run out of steam against us. It's a great credit to my players, the character and passing we're showing.

"We are so strapped with injuries, but I don't have to mention them because every player in my squad can make a difference. Today we brought three people on and they all made a huge difference to us."

Woking boss Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

"I think we started the brighter of the two teams and the better opportunities.

"We got punished at 1-1 and I knew it was going to be hard from there.

"It was a mad minute really, it's hard and I'm not really worried about the third goal."
