Striker Ross Lafayette was praised by Woking boss Gary Hill after making his debut during the 0-0 Vanarama Conference Premier draw against Bristol Rovers on Saturday.

The forward played 74 minutes before being replaced by ex-Town frontman Scott Rendell, as Hill told BBC Surrey: “I thought he did well, which gives us encouragement especially when we’ve had Scott Rendell out.

“It’s difficult to get a hold-up striker to replace Scott but Ross has done well and I’m happy overall.”
