Woking 1-3 Grimsby Town

Padraig Amond
Padraig Amond joined Grimsby from Morecambe

Padraig Amond scored a hat-trick and took his tally of league goals for the season to 30 as Grimsby climbed up to third with victory at Woking.

Amond fired the visitors ahead after being teed up by Andy Monkhouse.

Woking's Cameron Norman saw his free-kick crash against a post before Amond netted his second following good work from Omar Bogle and Craig Disley.

Bruno Andrade slotted home from close range to pull a goal back, but Amond sealed the points with a cool finish.

Grimsby, who were beaten in last season's play-off final, need two points from their remaining two games to secure a top-five spot this term.

Woking boss Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

Hill on Woking v Grimsby

"We started against a Grimsby side who started very quickly and moved the ball around and showed a lot of quality in a big way.

"We found ourselves 1-0 down in the first 20 minutes. they had players all over the park and we couldn't really live with them - they were playing some superb football.

"Playing against such a good side, a lot of teams would have turned around and buckled and folded, but I felt we showed a great deal of character and commitment and for a 15-minute period we played some very good football."
