Boreham Wood vs Oxford City
Saturday 16th December 2023, 3.00pm
Mangata Pay UK Stadium Meadow Park, Vanarama National League
The Wood welcome Oxford City to the Mangata Pay UK Stadium Meadow Park tomorrow. Due to our postponed game against Oldham Athletic, the Hoops will be the first side that we face for the second time this season in the National League. Luke Garrard and his squad will be looking to right the wrongs back in August where the Wood succumbed to a 4-0 away defeat. Since then, there have been a lot of changes to both squads and now three points separate the sides with the Wood sitting in 18th and Oxford City sitting in 22nd.
