The Wood are back on the road again this Saturday, November 24 (3pm), when we head to AFC Fylde, in the Vanarama National League. Here’s our preview…
AFC Fylde use an electronic ticket system that allows travelling supporters to purchase tickets in advance of the game.
The system works in a similar way to the Wood’s new online ticketing system. Away supporters can buy tickets online, print off at home and go straight to the turnstile on the day.
To purchase tickets for AFC Fylde vs Boreham Wood visit: https://tickets.afcfylde.co.uk/default.aspx click on the relevant game, and follow the simple process.
Tickets can also be purchased on the day from the ticket office, although it is advised to buy in advance to prevent any potential delays/queuing.
The Wood have no fresh injury concerns to contend with.
Luke Garrard enjoyed a full quota for the match against Ebbsfleet United and will once again have that luxury.
The Wood are now unbeaten in their last five matches in the Vanarama National League, following a 0-0 draw at home to Ebbsfleet United last Saturday.
Despite the end-to-end nature of the game, neither side were able to put the finishing touches on an attacking move and take away all three points.
The Wood had drawn both of the matches prior to that fixture, with away draws against Solihull Moors and Aldershot Town.
The other two matches in the current five-game run, were wins over Bromley and Maidenhead United at Meadow Park.
The Wood have climbed one place to 10th in the National League table, on 28-points, after 20 matches.
Managed by 43-year-old Dave Challinor, AFC Fylde currently sit sixth in the league, with 35 points.
They lost last time out, away to Dagenham & Redbridge, but have won three of their last five games, which included a 6-0 win over Maidenhead United.
One to Watch – Danny Rowe
AFC Fylde’s star man and poster boy is local lad Danny Rowe, who has scored prolifically since joining in August 2014.
The 28-year-old scored an incredible 48 goals in all competitions during Fylde’s National League North promotion winning campaign.
Subject to plenty of summer interest, Rowe is an old-fashioned style centre-forward and netted an impressive 24 times last campaign, leading the scoring charts for much of the season.
The forward already has 12 goals this year and will be the focal point of the Fylde attack.
From the Dugout – Luke Garrard
“They played here in the quarter-finals of the National League Play-offs last year, and that was in their debut season in this league.
“I think that he is a fantastic manager (Challinor). Look at the squad that they have at their disposal.
“Obviously, Rowe is the main man, but you look at (Andrew) Bond, (Ryan) Croasdale, (Danny) Philliskirk, (Zaine) Angol at left back, Neill Byrne, the man they brought in from Gateshead.
“For me, they are a very, very good outfit, and if we are going to get maximum points on Saturday, then we have got to play to our potential.
“We have worked heavily on where we think they can hurt us. They have played a couple of different types of shapes in their last few games and it will be very interesting to see when the team sheet lands, what personnel he picks and puts out.
“Them and Wrexham (have the best defensive records in the league). But, we think that there are little chinks in their armour.
“I know that Leyton Orient scored three against them and I know Dagenham scored two against them, so they have shipped a few goals in recent weeks.
“We have had positive training sessions this week, in terms of the work that we expect.
“For me, it is about kicking on and looking up. We haven’t been beaten in the last five and that is positive.”
