Darren Sarll made two changes to the side that was beaten 2-0 at Grimsby on Saturday. Sonny Blu Lo-Everton was dropped from the side as Tom Knowles regained his place in the team while Adi Yussuf replaced Joe Quigley who dropped to the bench.
Yeovil lined up in their usual 4-4-2 formation with Jack Robinson, Max Hunt, Josh Staunton and Dan Moss in front of Grant Smith. Jordan Barnett, Dale Gorman, Matt Worthington and Tom Knowles made up the midfield while Charlie Wakefield and Adi Yussuf lead the attack.
On the bench was Max Evans, Jordan Dyer, Ben Seymour, Toby Stephens and Joe Quigley.
Woking kicked off towards the home terrace.
Yeovil made a blistering start to the game and had the ball in the back of the net after just two minutes as Adi Yussuf rounded the keeper and slotted the ball home but he was adjudged to have been offside.
It mattered little though as just two minutes later Yeovil found the back of the net again and this time the goal stood. A Jordan Barnett throw in found Tom Knowles who was able to find Charlie Wakefield at the far post and he fired the ball home to give Town an early lead.
The rest of the half saw little in the way of clear-cut chances but Yeovil were by far the better side. Yeovil were putting Woking under a lot of pressure and were the side looking most likely to score the next goal but they couldn't carve out any further opportunities.
Yeovil won the first corner of the game on 31 minutes which was crossed to the far post but nobody was able to get on the end of it.
Yeovil won another corner shortly after after Tom Knowles's effort had to be pushed around the post but the corner came to nothing.
1 minute of time was added on at the end of the half and Yeovil went in at the break with a deserved lead.
Half Time: Yeovil Town 1-0 Woking
Yeovil started the second half in the same manner as they did the first - by scoring an early goal.
A good team move on the right hand side allowed Yeovil to put a good low cross into the box and Tom Knowles was able to fire the ball past Craig Ross to double Yeovil's advantage on 47 minutes.
The rest of game continued in a similar manner to the first half whereby Yeovil were the superior side but again couldn't create many further chances.
Woking made a double substitution on 61 minutes as Tommy Block was replaced by Kyran Lofthouse and Solomon Nwabuokei was replaced by Tarryn Allarakhia.
Two minutes later Yeovil made their first substitution as Adi Yussuf was replaced by Joe Quigley.
Yeovil won a corner on the right hand side on 70 minutes but once again it failed to trouble the Woking defence.
Woking made their last substitution on 73 minutes as Max Kretzschmar was replaced by Kane Thompson-Sommers.
As the final 10 minutes approached Yeovil were looking fairly comfortable but were getting rather frustrated with the refereeing decisions which seemed to favour Woking in almost all situations.
Yeovil made their second substitution on 85 minutes as Tom Knowles was replaced by Ben Seymour.
5 minutes of time was added on and after Yeovil made their final substitution as Matt Worthington made way for Jordan Dyer to make his debut, Yeovil saw the game out for a comfortable and fully deserved three points.
Full Time: Yeovil Town 2-0 Woking
It was a much better performance from Yeovil tonight and it was good to see the team get their just rewards for their efforts. Yeovil's pressing allowed them to ensure Woking struggled to get up-field all game and even though Yeovil are still struggling to be creative they were able to score two very well taken goals.
The win see's up move up into 14th place with 14 points, six points from a playoff place and six points from the relegation zone.
Yeovil's season continues on Saturday afternoon as Yeovil make the trip to Soihull Moors. Kick off is at 3PM
