Report by Anthony Reeve
Woking started the game brightly but the first chance didnít come until 13th minute as Banya, on loan from Fulham beat 4 on coming Hyde players but after cutting in his shot is straight at Vigouroux.
Hyde took the lead a minute later; Blakeman made a run down the Hyde left and whipped it in which found Reece Gray to slot it past Beasant in the Woking goal.
Woking looked for the equaliser straight from the restart as Marriot tackled Gray but his shot is tame and is safely dealt with by Vigouroux.
Woking continued to press as Banya shot wide, but Hyde went two up on 23 minutes as Gray bagged his second, Rendall gave the ball away in the centre with Gray taking on the defence single handedly and slot past the rushing Beasant to make it 2-0 to the Tigers.
Woking stepped up the tempo but offered little. It was on 40 minutes when Vigouroux was made to work again as Banya whipped in a ball that found Rendellís head but the shot was straight at the Chilean.
Woking got back into the game a minute later as Marriott took the ball down, turned and shot past Vigouroux in the Hyde net. It was a good finish by the youngster on loan from Ipswich Town.
Woking continued to press for the equaliser for the rest of the half but couldn't find a way past Vigouroux.
Woking came out for the 2nd half as they finished the first, attacking the Hyde goal.
It took just two minutes from the restart for Woking to draw level through a controversial Rendall goal which looked to be offside. The ball pinged around the box and from a block, the ball landed to Rendall who looked to be offside on the goal line, but the officials turned the appeals away and allowed the goal.
Woking pressed for this winner and chances were falling regularly to the front two, Marriott and Rendell but they could not get the ball past the inspired Chilean in the Tigers goal.
Hyde were caught on the counter as Marriott picked up the ball in his own half, but having shrugged off two Hyde players dragged his shot wide.
Woking took a fully deserved lead on 74 minutes as a ball whipped in by Newton found Jack Marriott at the back post who taps it in to give the Surrey side the lead.
Woking kept knocking on the Hyde door, looking for more goals but Marriott and Payne wasted good chances.
Hyde offered little after the final goal in the second half with Woking edging it in terms of the play.
