HUNGERFORD Town held off late pressure from Woking to earn a valuable point in a 1-1 draw at Bulpit Lane on Saturday afternoon.
The game was goalless at the interval, but Crusaders keeper Michael Luyambula was called upon a number of times to keep the visitors out.
Town came out the better side after break and scored the first goal of the afternoon when Danilo Orsi-Dadomo's shot was saved, only for Alfy Whittingham to pounce on the follow-up.
Their lead lasted just 10 minutes as Josh Casey's free-kick sailed all the way into the corner from the right.
And despite late pressure from the promotion hopeful's, the Town players stood their ground to earn a crucial point to assist with their relegation battle.
