Jack Stroudley summed up the action from a goalless draw at York Road.
Maidenhead secured their fourth clean sheet in a row as the spoils were shared at home to Woking
Alan Devonshire made four changes to the side that drew 0-0 with Kidderminster Harriers on Monday with Sam Beckwith, Ashley Nathaniel-George, Chanka Zimba, and Charlee Adams all coming in for Lewis Kinsella, Jayden Mitchell-Lawson, Harry Parsons, and Brad Keetch.
Woking had the first effort of the match in the opening moments, Josh Casey’s cross into the box rattled against the crossbar before the Magpies cleared.
Maidenhead continued to soak up early pressure from the visitors who despite controlling a lot of the ball, struggled to create any clear-cut chances.
Charlee Adams had the first effort in a black & white shirt of the day after receiving a ball from Casey Petit on the edge of the box. Adams strike was saved by Will Jaaskelainen.
An open game saw both sides continue to create chances in the first half with Tunji Akinola and Petit producing saves from the respective keepers.
Tunji Akinola caught Maidenhead on the break following a corner after thirty minutes, his strike from range was tipped wide by Craig Ross.
Petit received the ball from Zico Asare on the edge of the box and his effort was well saved by Jaaskelainen.
Half-time: Maidenhead United 0-0 Woking
It was a cagey start to the second half at York Road with both sides battling to maintain possession but neither producing anything in the final third.
Woking slowly grew into the second half with a ball flashing across the box, Ricky Korboa latched on the end of it but couldn’t control the ball and Maidenhead were able to clear.
Korboa had another opportunity to give the Cards the lead as the ball fell to him in the box. Despite being in acres of space, he was unable to test Ross.
Reece Smith had the best opportunity for the Magpies in the second half after latching onto a Sam Beckwith cross, Smith sliced at his effort off-target.
Despite their being no more chances, there was some controversy as Maidenhead players and fans exclaimed for a late penalty following a potential handball, despite the claims the referee waved away the appeals.
Even with seven minutes of additional time, the game fizzled out and Maidenhead settled for their third 0-0 draw in a row.
