Boreham Wood defender Jamal Fyfield remains positive in defeat and says that the team’s fortunes will soon change.

The Wood suffered defeat to Wrexham who went top of the league on Tuesday and Fyfield spoke to BWTV to give his thoughts on the game.

“Wrexham have had a good season so far and they are on a good run of form,” said Fyfield on the opposition.

“It just seems like bad luck for us at the moment. I think that there was a foul in the lead up to the first goal, but that’s what happens when you’re down there and not getting any luck.

“Everything seems to go against you, but we stayed positive and we’re certainly not going to implode. We’re going to get together as a whole squad, including the coaching staff because we know what we need to do, and we are going to do it. We are a good team. We’re just not showing that at the moment.

“The gaffer and Cam are putting on great sessions to get us ready for the games. We just need to implement their ideas and execute them better on the pitch and once we do that we’ll be fine.”

Fyfield also spoke of the changes to the formation which has adapted the Wood’s attacking play.

“The good thing about our squad is that we can do a handful of formations. If a game needs a different formation, the gaffer will prepare us to deal with any kind of danger and how to counter-attack and set up in that formation.

“I feel like we just need to get that first goal, we’ve got some great players up top that are always creating.

“Maybe it will come off of someone’s leg or a ricochet, the tides will change again. it just hasn’t happened for us recently and that’s how football goes sometimes, we just need to stick together.”

The 29-year-old also discussed the impact the experienced players can have on the squad.

“There’s a lot of experienced players in the dressing room, not just myself. It’s down to me to command the back four and some of the younger players, but it’s a team effort.

“Some of the young boys have played a lot of football for their age so there are no babies in there. We are all men and when we are down in the dumps we need men who are going to roll their sleeves up and get the job done.”

The Wood will now have a break before they play again and Fyfield sees both advantages and disadvantages to this.

“I think ideally we would like a game. When you lose you just want another game to put it right.

“As it stands that’s not the way the fixtures have gone so we will re-group and go over what we can do better, go over the past few weeks and come back stronger.”
