Debutant Dan Holman scored twice as Braintree won away at Woking.

The Iron took the lead through Holman's powerful 25-yard drive but the hosts equalised shortly before half-time when striker Brett Williams drilled home from 20 yards.

Soon after the restart Cards' Mike Cestor headed into his own net before Nicky Symons smashed in from 35 yards.

Holman scored his second with a cool finish from the edge of the box after 64 minutes to round off the scoring.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Woking manager Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

"The scoreline has certainly stunned us tonight and I'm very disappointed and surprised, but if you don't do the basics properly you'll get punished and we've caused our own problems tonight.

"If anything we should have come in at half-time with a buzz about us and I felt confident in the second half we would push on but we defended poorly.

"I think they have punished us tonight and our defence have pressed the self-destruct button and it's cost us.

"The third goal all came basically from our goalkeeper's clearance - it's a wonderful strike, but our goalkeeper will look at himself. We've taken a lot of pats on the backs in recent months but tonight wasn't a great night and now it's all about how we respond."
