Neil Aspin could not hide his disappointment after FC Halifax Town were beaten 3-2 at Woking on the final day of the Vanarama Conference regular season.

Two goals in stoppage time condemned Halifax to defeat and completed a miserable end to their campaign of only one win in their last 15 games.

Aspin said: “It’s a disappointing way to end the season, but once next season comes round everything starts again.”

Scott McManus ended Halifax’s four-and-a-half hour wait for a goal when he headed in a corner from close range.

Woking equalised through Josh Payne, who rifled in after the ball fell to him inside the area.

Guiseppe Sole went close three times for Woking and Danny Schofield hit a post for Halifax in a frenetic first half.

Will Hatfield scored a penalty moments after the restart, but then missed another spot-kick after Josh Payne had been sent off for tripping him.

Joe McNerney, Manny Oyeleke and John Goddard went close before Scott Rendell equalised from the spot.

Substitute Yemi Odubade tapped in a cross from the right flank to complete the comeback.
