Wood came out the blocks flying in the second half and in the 51st minute, Junior Morias won the ball and played into the path of Francis-Angol who delivered an excellent cross to find Tyrone Marsh at the back post who knocked in his debut goal.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

“THE DESTROYER”

He re-joined the Terras at the start of this season after impressing during last season’s promotion campaign.

LAST TIME WE MET

Boreham Wood 1-0 Weymouth
Tuesday 2nd February 2021
Meadow Park, Vanarama National League

It was a lively start to the game, and it was the visitors who edged proceedings with Josh McQuoid causing the Wood back line some problems.

The 66th minute saw the introduction of Matt Rhead which was the changing point in the game as he linked up well with Wood’s top scorer Kabongo Tshimanga.

In the 72nd minute of the match, Keiran Murtagh expertly found Tshimanga with an excellent pass, the forward did well to hold off two Terras defenders and found the back of the net with a blistering strike coming off the underside of the bar to give Wood a 1-goal lead.

Wood had several chances to extend the lead in the second half, but the Terras defence remained strong and the game finished 1-0.
