Holman's sweet strike extends Braintree's unbeaten run
Dan Holman's wonderful late strike ensured Braintree Town got a point from their Blue Square Bet Premier encounter with Woking at the Amlin Stadium.
It was the first of four home games in the space of eight days for the Iron and they headed into it on the back of four back-to-back victories.
Their confidence was evident in a bright start, but an early effort by Kenny Davis went over the bar and Cards keeper Seb Brown saved from a driven shot by Nicky Symons.
And Braintree were ruing not making more of their chances when they fell behind in the 22nd minute.
From a seemingly safe situation for the hosts, the ball fell to Jayden Stockley and he unleashed a 25 yard volley that gave home keeper Nathan McDonald no chance.
Braintree lost their way a bit after the goal and even though there was no let up in their effort, they lacked some quality in the final third.
That continued after the break as the Iron had more of the possession again while Woking seemed content to sit back and absorb the pressure.
It looked as if their ploy may work, but Holman had other ideas.
In a similar position on the pitch to where Stockley had scored, the Braintree striker picked up the ball and drilled home an equally impressive leveller.
It wasn't the final bit of action, but it was the end of any real goal threats and both sides had to be happy with a point at the final whistle.
The point lifted Braintree up to 13th in the table and two points short of the 50-point target that boss Alan Devonshire feels will guarantee their survival this year ahead of Thursday's visit of Nuneaton Town.
