Team News

Form Guide

Two defeats in the last two matches has turned a strong start to the season, into a reasonable start, however the Wood will feel that their performances warranted more points than they got.

The Wood struggled after a long trip to Barrow in the last round of fixtures and manager Luke Garrard has called for a reaction following that performance.

Bruno Andrade remains the Wood’s top scorer this campaign, after netting once more in the match against Barrow.

Leyton Orient have won their last four matches, and sit joint top of the table with Dagenham and Redbridge.

However, Orient’s early season defeats of 6-1 to Bromley and 2-0 to Sutton United will give the Wood confidence going into the match.

Manager Steve Davis has vast Football League experience, having spent six years at Crewe Alexandra.

From the Dugout – Luke Garrard  

“They are on a good run at the minute, they are unbeaten in their last four and I think that they are starting to click.

“They brought in a lot of new recruits in the summer and I think that they are now finally getting to grips with each other’s strengths and weaknesses.

“Steve Davis has got an unbelievable background in terms of where he has been and what he has achieved. And, I think that his recruitment this year has been very good and he has gotten a good blend.

“He has got experience in Charlie Lee, David Mooney and Jobi McAnuff and then he has brought in a couple who have played at this level in Jake Caprice and Joe Widdowson.

“But, we have brought in Dean Wells, Tom Champion and Keiran Murtagh at this level; so for me, I think that it is going to be a good test and I am really, really looking forward to it.

“The players are looking forward to it, and regardless of whether it is Leyton Orient, Aldershot, Torquay or Solihull, they are all tough tests at this level. For me, it is all about the reaction after last Saturday.”
