The reserves ran out comfortable 4-1 winners against Woking this evening. They took the lead in the 19th minute when Ricardo Alves glanced home a header, and three minutes later Dale Binns latched on to a ball, beat his marker and slotted the ball home from an angle. The third goal came shortly before half time when Rene James-Barriteau, who caused problems all evening with his pace, finished well after breaking through the defence. Woking fought back in the second half and deservedly pulled a goal back with 20 minutes to go. The final goal came in stoppage time when Gary Meakins fed a quick free kick through to James-Barriteau who finished clinically. Another positive to come out of the game was that Jon-Barrie Bates came through his first 90 minutes since returning from holiday, and had an influential performance in midfield.

Team: Luke Thornton, Gary Meakins, Andy Hutchinson, Mark Burgess, Mehmet Unal (Greg Joseph HT), Andre Delisser, Jon-Barrie Bates, Dave Hunt, Rene James-Barriteau, Ricardo Alves (Patou Katsheynge 55), Dale Binns (Sam Byfield 76), Unused subs: Simon Huggett, Andrew Vincent.
