Luke Garrard was missing a large number of his squad for the game against Hartlepool United, but confirmed in his match preview that a number of them have returned to training and he expects some to return to action on Saturday.
The Wood are on the back of a four-match winless run, suffering defeats to Salford City, Eastleigh, Harrogate Town and Hartlepool United.
Three of those defeats came on the road and Garrard will be hoping that the return to Meadow park will put an end to that.
Prior to the match against Harrogate Town, the Wood had not lost at home in the National League this season.
The Wood gaffer believed that his side should have come away with something against Hartlepool and will see the return to fitness of a number of his squad as a key factor in getting three points.
Managed by 62-year-old Alan Devonshire, Maidenhead United have lost their last two matches, against favourites Leyton Orient and Salford City at home.
They currently sit 17th in the National League on 17 points, with their most recent victory coming against Chesterfield, winning 3-1 away from home.
One to Watch – Harold Odametey
Midfield maestro Harold Odametey is a key cog in the Maidenhead machine and helps to run the Magpies’ matchplay.
Although he is yet to score this season, Odametey’s game is about much more than goals and he has been an ever-present for Devonshire’s side this season.
Signed in May 2017 from Hampton, Odametey has experience with Kingstonian, Walton & Hersham, Carshalton Athletic and Harrow Borough.
The midfield battle between Odametey and the Wood will be key on Saturday.
From the Dugout – Luke Garrard
“We have had a full weeks training to hone in on where we need to improve, and the beautiful thing is that we have got a few of the injured boys back.
“We know what Maidenhead are going to throw up on Saturday and we know what Alan Devonshire is about as a manager.
“They are going to leave nothing out there in terms of their worth ethic and the manner in which they go about their football game.
“You look at Harold Odametey, you look at James Comley and Alan Massey, and they have brought in Ayo Obileye, Ryan Bird and young Josh Kelly up top, who has gone and fired in a lot of goals last year and been promoted up to the first team.
“They have got great personnel within their ranks and went to Chesterfield a couple of weekends ago and won 3-1.
“Yeah, they have played Leyton Orient and Salford City in that time and not picked up any points, but they are playing against probably the best in the league in my opinion.
“I know that if we go and match their work ethic and go and match their energy and endeavour, then hopefully we can do something positive come Saturday.”
