    Enjoyed the article but I find one thing rather odd. In the photo at the top of the article, visiting fans are stood in the safety break area between the metal barrier and the pitchside wall. Woking’s match with Oxford last Easter Monday was delayed one hour because some Oxford fans (including me) did just that. I am not impressed with the double standards of Woking management.

    Just a couple of comments. The Kingfield Road End of the ground is at the opposite end of the big stand, and the away terrace backs onto a tennis club. Also we were relegated before the last day of last season. Other than that thanks for covering the game and producing an entertaining report.

    Well structured and fair article about the game, agree totally with double standards of Woking officials. I asked a copper at end of game why only one was on duty during the game. He said that Woking FC would not pay for extra Police. Some Newport fans got away with running on pitch, fighting with stewards and spitting at Woking players and fans.

    If they cracked down on the misbehaviours and booted out the culpirts early it would of died down and passed off. Ignoring such behavour just encourages the idiots.
