Play off chasing Whites arrive at Meadow Park this Monday on the back of a superb 5-0 drubbing of Torquay United. The Kent side went nap to end an unbeaten run of eight games for The Gulls who looked prior to this result to be soaring clear of the relegation zone.
Chris Kinnear’s side are now looking firm favourites for a play off place, with their recent win hauling them up to fourth spot, continuing an unbeaten run that is now six matches.
The last time they lost on the road was back in December, when third placed Grimbsy Town won with the only goal of the game. They are a strong and tall outfit, who boast three stand out goal getters. Ricky Miller, who signed from Luton Town has eighteen goals to his name, Stefan Payne, who is playing the best football of his career after spells at Sutton United and Ebbsfleet has thirteen,whilst dead ball specialist Nicky Deverdics has also netted on thirteen occasions.
Wood will need to be at their best to gain anything from their tough Easter schedule after meeting a Cheltenham Town side that were purring on Good Friday to open up a three point gap on nearest rivals both geographically and numerically, Forest Green Rovers.
The last time the two sides met resulted in a 2-1 defeat at Crabble after Harry Crawford opened the scoring for Wood. The striker is now a Crabbite and may well feature at Meadow Park on Monday.
Luke Garrard has only survival on his mind and is; “ Totally focused on the task in hand with the arrival of Dover Athletic this Monday.” The belief is strong and Wood fans are needed now more then ever to get behind Luke and the boys as they attempt what is becoming “ The Great Escape”.
Following on from the Dover tie, Wood have just six more games, all against sides in the lower half of the table to amass enough points to stake their claim to a place in the National League next season.
Boreham Wood v Dover Athletic.
Monday March 28th, kick off 3pm.
