Following a series of injuries in the leadup to the match against Dagenham & Redbridge, Luke Garrard was without Bradley Ash, Dave Stephens, Danny Woodards and Dean Wells.
However, after a positive few days of physio and training, the Boreham Wood manager hopes to have the majority of them available for Saturday.
New signing Jamie Turley went straight into the squad for the season’s opener’s against AFC Fylde and the Daggers and is expected to continue at the heart of the defence.
The Wood are still searching for their first win of the new season, despite impressing in both of their opening fixtures.
A well earnt draw on the opening day was followed up by a disappointing loss to Dagenham and Redbridge.
However, a dominant second half performance against the Daggers has given the Wood plenty of reasons to be optimistic.
Solihull Moors arrive at Meadow Park also looking for their first win of the new season, having lost 3-1 to Leyton Orient on Tuesday night.
The Moors have played a game less than the rest of the National League due to their match against Chester being postponed last Saturday.
From the Dugout – Luke Garrard
“I feel that we will need to get on the front foot in the same manner as we did against Dagenham in the second half last Tuesday. For me, if we do that then we can cause them problems.
“We have watched their match against Leyton Orient and we have seen that Orient utilized the ball very well and shifted it with a purpose and that is going to be our game plan.
“We will come out with an energy and a tempo to us and look to exploit where I believe their weaknesses are.
“They are going to come here and want three points, they have brought in a lot of new recruits this year from the level below, but he knows what they are about and what their credentials are.
“It is not a weakness that they have come from the league below, you only have to look at the calibre of players who have come from that level, the likes of Omar Bogle, who is now at Wigan.”
“They have got the ability to play at this level and he wouldn’t have brought them in otherwise, for me, it is very much about us and how we go about our game plan.
“I want us to get on the front foot and assert our authority early on in the game, and I believe that if we play as well as we did in the second half against Dagenham, then we can cause them problems.”
