Match Preview

By John Mead

Wood play their eighth game of the campaign this Tuesday when they travel to headline grabbing Farnborough. The Boro have played just three matches this campaign due a late start that has hogged the headlines in the Non League world.

This will be just their second home fixture, their first resulting in a 1-0 against Dover Athletic in front of over 1000 fans. There followed two away fixtures, a 2-1 defeat at Havant and Waterlooville before an enthralling 3-3 draw at Sutton United. Our hosts were 1-2 ahead before finding themselves 3-2 down with five minutes remaining. They duly earned a valuable point through Josh Huggins with two minutes remaining.

With Farnborough currently below Wood on points there is an added incentive for Ian Allinson’s side to build upon their fine 2-0 victory against Gosport Borough and put some distance between the two sides. Wood will be hoping for a repeat of last seasons trip, which ended in a 0-3 victory with Greg Morgan amongst the goal scorers, a result which left us fourth in the table.

Tuesday September 17th kick off 7.45pm.

The Rushmoor Community Stadium, Cherrywood Road, Farnborough. GU14 8UD.
