The Wood won last time out, beating Hemel Hempstead 2-1 in the Herts Senior Cup Quarter Final.
Bradley Ash put the Wood ahead inside two minutes, latching onto a through ball from strike partner Ralston Gabriel, to tuck home.
Jamal Fyfield doubled the lead shortly after from a free-kick, before Hemel Hempstead pulled one back.
The win over Hemel Hempstead will have boosted confidence following a frustrating last-minute defeat to Sutton United, in their last league game.
Managed by 41-year-old Simon Weaver, Harrogate Town beat Havant & Waterlooville last time out, with a 2-1 away win.
The Yorkshire based outfit currently sit sixth in the National League table on 71-points, with one win and two draws in their last five fixtures.
One to Watch – Jack Muldoon
A National League winner with Lincoln City in the 2016/17 campaign, Jack Muldoon is experienced at National League level.
Standing at 5ft 10ins tall, Muldoon netted 10 times for AFC Fylde last season, as he helped the side to a Play-Off place.
A versatile forward, who can play either on the wing, or up-front, Muldoon joined Harrogate to much excitement, following the expiration of his contract with AFC Fylde.
Muldoon has 15 goals so far this season and will be one to watch out for on Saturday afternoon.
From the Dugout – Luke Garrard
“It is going to be tough. Obviously, they are fighting for a play-off spot and they picked up a good win against Havant & Waterlooville on the road last Saturday.
“I can imagine that they will want to consolidate that with a positive performance and three points this weekend.
“We had a bit of an odd game against them early on in the season at Meadow Park and we I think that we owe them one.
“For me, tomorrow is about putting the Sutton United result to bed, as opposed to the performance, because I thought that the performance wasn’t too bad.
“I want to continue the work we had done previously against Solihull Moors and barrow, so if we can get a positive result come Saturday, then we will be coming back down the M1 very happy.”
