The Wood are back at home this Saturday, March 9 (3pm), when we welcome AFC Fylde, in the National League. Here’s our preview…
Boreham Wood Football Club have now moved onto an online ticketing system and ticket details can be found HERE. Ticket prices are as follows: Adults £18; OAPS £13, under 16’s £8 and under 12’s £4 (subject to booking fee).
These prices are to sit or stand. The West and East stands are seated, and the North and South ends are standing.
We advise that all supporters planning to attend BWFC matches at Meadow Park, purchase tickets beforehand.
Once purchased, tickets are available to download to supporter’s phones, are accessible on the Ticket Arena app, and can also be printed at home and brought to the game for entry.
Tickets will still be available to purchase on the day of the game, but at an increased rate of £2 (£3 for U12s).
For home supporters, cash payments will be available on the East Stand turnstile, and card payments in the Gallery Suite bar. Away supporters will also be able to purchase tickets on the away gate in the West Stand, with cash.
The match will be unsegregated, and the nearest public car park is stationed in Brook Road and adjacent to stadium.
Luke Garrard has no fresh injuries to contend with.
David Stephens returned to the starting line-up for the win over Bromley and will be hoping to retain his place in the side.
The Wood ended their winless run last time out, with a 2-0 victory over in-form Bromley away from home.
Ralsten Gabriel opened his account for the Wood with a goal that put the away side ahead going into half-time.
Peterborough United loanee Idris Kanu then wrapped up the win in the final minutes of the match, poking home a rebound, after Bradley Ash’s initial shot had been saved.
While the win may have been a big boost to the club, in their aim to retain their National League status, Garrard asserted his view that they mustn’t rest on their laurels.
The victory lifted Boreham Wood up to 17th in the National League, on 42-points.
Managed by 43-year-old Dave Challinor, AFC Fylde are currently chasing the National League title, sitting in fourth place, on 63-points.
The Coasters beat Maidenhead United 2-1 at home last time out in the National League.
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.
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 23 goals this year and as always, will be the focal point of the Fylde attack.
From the Dugout – Luke Garrard
“The setup at Fylde is unbelievable, and what Dave Challinor has achieved, both last year and this year, has been brilliant.
“I honestly believe they have got a squad who can go on and win the league, they have got the striker in Danny Rowe, and I think Nick Haughton is phenomenal.
“We played them back before the turn of the year and I believe we had a very productive day, but lost 2-1, when they scored two goals in the 88th minute.
“I honestly feel that if we go and match the levels we did at Bromley, and deliver on that, then I feel we are going to give them a game tomorrow.
“We have got 11 cup finals and we need everyone pulling in the same direction.
“So, to the supporters, bring your friends, bring your family and get down here and support the boys, because we all know they react to a crowd.”
