Form Guide

A last-minute goal at Gateshead, saw Boreham Wood remain in 11th place, still just four points outside of the playoff spots.

Ricky Shakes netted an 87th minute equaliser in a match that lacked any real spark, with Wes York having put the Heed ahead in the first half.

The Wood return home in search of a first win in three, as well as a third clean sheet of the campaign.

Eastleigh sit in 16th position, having seen their match against Chester called off late on Saturday.

Managed by 54-year-old Richard Hill, the side will be hoping to make the most of their fresh legs come Tuesday.

 

From the Dugout – Luke Garrard  

“If we go and put maximum points on the board against Eastleigh and Halifax, in the next two home games, then the point against Gateshead will be looked at as a great point away from home.

“It is about a reaction come Tuesday, I know that Eastleigh didn’t played on Saturday due to a waterlogged pitch at their place, so they will be fresh, but it is about regrouping and going again to hopefully get three points.

“Eastleigh haven’t played; does that benefit them? Does that not? For me it is about getting an eleven out there, that I think are the best to go and win a game of football.

“The pitch helps, it is obviously a lovely zippy pitch, under the lights as well. I enjoy games under the lights, because I think that we are sharper and I think that we are brighter.

“I am demanding that they perform better than they did do on Saturday, if we can regroup on Monday, if we can go again and if we can get a clean sheet on the board, then I think that we can go and win games of football.”
