Form Guide 

The Wood were held to a 1-1 draw against the Darts on Saturday, at Princes Park.

Ricky Shakes’ opener was cancelled out by Tom Murphy, who equalised in the 67th minute.

The draw continues the Wood’s impressive run of form, having lost just once in all competitions, since September.

Managed by 59-year-old Tony Burman, The Darts are top of the National League South table, on 38 points.

Alex Brown was sent off for the Darts in the away leg, following a second yellow card.

The Darts have lost just once at home this season, but were defeated last time out in the league, 1-0 away to Hungerford Town.

From the Dugout – Luke Garrard  

“I wasn’t too unhappy with the result, I have got to be honest, because they have lost just one game at home all season and they are a team who are sitting at the top of the tree.

“I understand that it is a cup game and I understand that we were coming up against a team who are top of the league, but we have got an opportunity now on Tuesday to put some wrongs right.

“I have to give credit to them, but I feel that our game didn’t get going today and that is something that I have got to look at and try and get into the players and emphasise what I expect on Tuesday.

“We are still in the trophy and we have got the draw on Monday, so we will know our opponents prior to the game on Tuesday and I fully expect the boys to put on a better performance than they did today.”
