Tonbridge Angels gave Blue Square Bet South leaders Woking a scare on Monday, but were unable to build on an encouraging start.
Frannie Collin (pictured) had given Tommy Warrilow’s side the lead in the first half, but Woking hit back against the Angels, who finished with 10 men after Lee Browning saw red.
It leaves Tonbridge sitting ninth in the table after suffering successive defeats over the Easter period.
Woking had found the net early on, through Giuseppe Sole, but the goal was ruled out by the referee for a foul in the build-up.
At the other end, Mikel Suarez headed Collin’s free-kick against the bar.
Sole - who was looking to equal a club record by scoring in eight consecutive games - came close after his free-kick was tipped on to the post by Tonbridge keeper Lee Worgan.
Five minutes before the break Tonbridge went ahead. Rory Hill created the opportunity for Collin and the initial shot was blocked. Hill’s follow-up struck the post, but Collin was on hand to fire into the roof of the net for his 27th goal of the season.
Woking’s response was immediate and Moses Ademola smashed the ball home to make it 1-1 at the interval.
Tonbridge’s hopes were dented when Browning was issued a straight red card for a challenge on Ademola and, with 10 minutes left, Sole got his goal and handed the hosts the points.
