Woking chairman David Taylor says his decision to sack manager Phil Gilchrist was sealed at half-time during the 5-1 home defeat to Kidderminster. Gilchrist and assistant Neil Lyne leave the club third from bottom in the Blue Square Premier table, three points adrift of safety. Taylor told BBC Surrey: "The team weren't even sweating [at half time]. "That's not what I want from a club, players who play for Woking will play with pride and give everything." Taylor went on: "I got my fellow directors together and asked them their opinion, and as a board we made the decision at the end of the game. "I like Phil as a person, I think the way he came in and said goodbye to the players and everyone at Kingfield proves he is a man of great dignity and we will miss him," he added. "However we are in the situation we are in, we have six games to go. I have been inundated with questions about my future, the club's future, but quite frankly at the moment we are away at Barrow and all our attention is focussed on that."
