Team News

Boreham Wood were forced into extra-time on Tuesday night against Dartford in the FA Trophy. Despite the added minutes, Luke Garrard hopes to have a full squad to choose from over the Christmas Period.

Garrard was also boosted by the permanent addition of Blair Turgott to the squad today.

Form Guide

The Wood have played two FA Trophy fixtures against Dartford, since their last league tie against AFC Fylde, a 1-0 win at home.

A penalty shootout win over the Darts secured the Wood’s place in the next round of the competition, and continued their run of impressive form.

The Wood currently sit inside the playoffs in seventh place, ahead of the busy Christmas Period.

With a match against Torquay United sandwiched between two ties with Sutton United, the Wood will be hopeful of kick-starting the Christmas period with a win.

Managed by 47-year-old Mark Yates, The Moors currently sit bottom of the National League table, on 16 points.

A win over Tranmere Rovers in their own FA Trophy tie, will have boosted moral in the Moors camp, as they look to climb the table.

From the Dugout – Luke Garrard  

“Yeah it is going to be tough, I have watched their last three games and they possess good quality, they play a system and a shape, that I can imagine Mark and his assistant Tim Flowers have got them accustomed to.

“It is the start of four, five fixtures in a seven to ten-day period, so it is going to be a big ask for the players, but like I say week-in-week-out, it is very much about what we are about.

“If you look at their last three or four matches, they have beaten two very good sides in Leyton Orient and Tranmere Rovers and I can imagine that they are buoyant and that they have got confidence.

“Watching them, they are a totally different outfit to the one who we faced earlier on in the season, but every fixture is a tough fixture at this level.

“You look at all of the teams who have brought in new managers and new personnel, it is a level that everyone wants to be in and one that everyone is striving to stay in, and Solihull are no different.

“But, we have brought in a few new faces and we have got a group who are unbeaten in their last 11 fixtures in the league, so our confidence is sky high.”
