Player-manager Jamie Day’s early free-kick proved the difference as Welling United qualified for the third round of the FA Trophy with a narrow win at Woking.

Day, giving himself a rare start, curled the ball in from 25 yards after seven minutes as the Wings beat a Blue Sqaure Bet Premier side for the second consecutive round.

The 1-0 victory in Surrey means Welling have now won nine league and FA Trophy games on the spin.

The home side finished the contest with nine men, with strikers Brett Williams and Bradley Bubb being sent off.

Williams saw red after 18 minutes for a two-footed tackle on Kiernan Hughes-Mason and Bubb followed him down the tunnel at the start of the second-half after picking up a second yellow card.

The numerical advantage meant the visitors were on top for most of the game with Ross Lafayette, Loui Fazakerley and Jake Gallagher going close.

Welling will be looking to continue their excellent form at home to Tonbridge Angels in the league on Saturday.
