The result leaves the traditional Great Eastern-YEO's S.League giants languishing in 8th, six points behind joint leaders DPMM FC and Harimau Muda, who both have a game in hand.
Before Thursday's game at the Jalan Besar Stadium, many expected the Warriors to comfortable see off Woodlands, but the Rams got off to a flying start in the 15th minute when Moon Soon-ho capitalised on some poor marking to open the scoring.
Mislav Karoglan equalised for Bok's charges shortly after but Moon put Woodlands back in front in the 61st minute, before Ruzaini Zainal stole a share of the spoils for the visitors.
Despite being pleased with the resolve his players showed, Bok admits his defence needs some serious improvement.
"We showed character [to twice come back from behind] but it was still a below-par performance," Bok said.
"We need to stop conceding and continue scoring if we want to win games. So far, attacking-wise, we have been doing alright.
"If you look at our games so far, I think we created more chances than our opponents in most of those."
Bok was also uncertain if his players had taken Woodlands too lightly on the evening.
"I don't know if we were complacent," he added. "In training, everything looks okay but it's the performance during the matches that count.
"I don't think we took the result for granted. We still created chances but we weren't cohesive enough.
"We looked lethargic, we didn't move the ball fast enough and we were one-dimensional at certain stages and that is really something we need to work on."
Considering he felt his side were lacking creativity in attack, it was somewhat surprising he chose to take off dangerman Tatsuro Inui in the 72nd minute, although it was later revealed Bok had not been satisfied with the Japanese winger's performance.
"At certain points in the game, he [Inui] wasn't playing to my instructions. That's the reason why I took him off for Zulfadli [Zainal Abidin]."
Woodlands assistant coach Clement Teo revealed he was pleased with how well the players followed their instructions against the Warriors, and believed they could have even gone on to win the game.
"We spent a week preparing for this game and it worked very well," Teo said. "It's unfortunate that whenever we scored, we conceded.
"The players were very good today [Thursday] because everything we told them to do in the week, they did."
Teo also revealed that the Rams were more than prepared for SAFFC thanks to head coach Salim Moin's scouting of the Warriors.
"Whenever we had the ball, we played a 3-4-3 formation [to counter SAFFC]," Teo added. "Our tactical genius [Moin] watched them and he knew what we needed to do."
The Warriors will be looking to bounce back in their next game against Balestier Khalsa next Thursday, while the Rams have a tough test next Sunday when they visit Harimau Muda.
