After a two week wait it looks promising that we may finally get a game under our belts this coming weekend. Our opponents just put four past Dorchester, a week after we hit five against the current basement side.
Ninth placed Dover sit in a group of seven sides that are in or one win from a play off place, whilst we are members of a group of five teams who are one defeat from the relegation zone. That said we are in a far more comfortable position than three weeks ago, which is refreshing.
The Whites have slowly improved after a sluggish start and have managed to combine their climb up the table with a couple of commendable cup runs. A 2nd Round Proper slender defeat at the hands of MK Dons in front of over 4000 fans was commendable in the F A Cup, as was just failing to reach the last 16 of this season’s F A Trophy. Eastleigh won for the second time this season at Crabble with an injury time winner to win by the odd goal in five, earning a place in the last sixteen.
Last season’s contest at Meadow Park was an extremely watchable and hard fought encounter that ended in a 1-1 draw.
One to watch is Jeff Goulding a 29 year old striker who scored a hat trick on his debut last weekend. The ex Cheltenham Town striker will be keen to continue his form.
Wood Boss Ian Allinson informed that both David Moli and Matthew Ball have completed their loan deals and returned to their parent clubs. The Football Club would like to thank them both for their efforts and wish them every success with their careers.
Musing over a soggy winter Allinson commented, “ It is a shame we could not continue our momentum. We are a couple of wins away from joining the hunt for the play offs and we aim to keep pushing to achieve our ambition.”
Boreham Wood v Dover Athletic Saturday January 25th, kick off 3pm.
