And they are shown the way to do it by Payne, who strikes a fierce drive into the net to round off the victory.


Hereford continue to push forward but are not able to find the accuracy in attack to test


Rankine sends Smith away on another counter-attack but the on-loan forward sends his effort high over the bar.


At the other end, Bush shows good pace to get into the Woking area and sends his shot high over the bar.


Betsy then goes down under a challenge but the referee Lymer waves away appeals for a penalty.


Lloyd-Weston, though, has to palm away a dangerous cross for a corner at the other end.


Hereford are showing more purpose in their build-up and a snap-shot by Rankine flies straight into the midriff of Beasant.


A Leadbitter cross is dropped by Beasant with the ball fumbled behind for a corner.
The kick is again wasted with the ball cleared.


Rankine makes another dangerous run and his cross is just in front of Smith.


But Woking win another corner on the hour.
United make two further substitutions before the kick, which comes to nothing, can be taken.


Walker comes on to replace Artus in a bid to give more attacking power.


Then Lloyd-Weston has to pull off a brilliant reaction save to keep out an effort from Marriott.
It’s another corner from Goddard which sees Lloyd-Weston punch clear.


But Woking strike back and win a corner.
Graham heads the ball out for a throw-in.


Rankine is the next to send in a dangerous cross after a pass from Collins but, again, no-one is far enough advanced to threaten the goal.


Then Artus sends a cross-shot flashing through the six-yard box but none of the Hereford forwards makes the gamble to try to get on the end of the ball.


Hereford make a more promising start to the second period and James sends a shot high over in the opening exchanges.


Marriott makes a lively break but shoots wastefully over as half-time approaches.


It’s Woking who continue to look the more threatening and it takes a save from Lloyd-Weston to prevent Rendell from adding a third.
From the corner, McNerney heads high over.


But Woking are almost gifted a third when Nutter’s free-kick deflects just behind off Artus for a corner.
The Cards keep up the attack and Bush has to boot the ball clear to keep the Bulls out of danger of conceding.


Then Bush tries his luck from long-range, only to see the ball fly high over Sam Beasant’s goal.


Hereford try to hit back and Brown and Bush set up Rankine whose shot is blocked.


Within seconds, Woking have a second.
A low drive from Kieron Murtagh finds its way past Lloyd-Weston into the corner of the net.


Woking take the lead on 24 minutes when the Bulls defence fails to pick up danger-man Jon Nutter.
He makes ground down the left and his cross is headed in by Jack Marriott.


Then there is a snap-shot from Murtagh but it lacks power and accuracy with Lloyd-Weston untroubled.


Payne sends a shot high over as Woking continue to enjoy a good passage of play.


Rendell heads a cross from Payne but Lloyd-Weston grasps the ball under the bar.


Woking threaten when Jon Nutter almost gets on the end of a dangerous cross.
It’s Nutter who forces the first corner for Woking on 15 minutes with Brown turning the ball behind.
McNerney heads the ball over from the flag-kick.


Woking threaten when Jon Nutter almost gets on the end of a dangerous cross.


Hereford win the first corner of the game when Brown’s cross is deflected behind.
Artus takes the kick but the ball is cleared by the Woking defence.


Rankine sends in an early shot but it presents no difficulty for Beasant in goal.


HEREFORD make two changes for the trip to Woking, looking to extend their unbeaten record for 2014 into a second month.
Kingsley James returns for the first time since October, following the departure of Josh O’Keefe.
And, with Dan Walker moved to the substitutes’ bench, there is a full debut for Jamie Edge.
Chris Bush makes a return to Woking, where he also spent a spell.
