Boreham Wood Preview – Can Boreham Wood make home advantage count?

After a lengthy lay-off, Boreham Wood find themselves back in the familiar territory of being in the play-offs of the National League where their next assignment is against Halifax who finished the curtailed regular season one league position and two points below Friday’s hosts, Boreham Wood.

Boreham Wood finished their regular season with a 1-0 win away from home at Maidenhead United (although they didn’t know it at the time!), but this result helped ensure a place in the play-offs where the hosts will be looking to go one step better this time around.

The hosts finished the season in strong fashion having suffered just one defeat from their last 19 matches overall, while also putting together an unbeaten run of nine matches at Meadow Park, but it’s now onto the lottery where anything can happen.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Halifax Preview – Can Halifax grab result when it matters?

Halifax headed into the lockdown in pretty dismal fashion as the Yorkshire outfit lost three of their last four matches in the National League before the season was curtailed and a cut-off point was reached in order to finish the fifth tier season.

Defeats to Torquay United, Woking and Ebbsfleet United had threatened to compromise their 6th place occupancy and they can consider themselves somewhat fortunate that the season finished when it did as they had the likes of Stockport County hot on their heels and actually level on points before the season was halted.

In addition, Halifax had picked up just one away win from their last seven matches prior to the lockdown which was a 1-0 win at Chorley, so they may not be taking too many risks early on in this upcoming clash at Boreham Wood as they’ll look to stay in the tie for as long as possible and perhaps take their chances from a set-piece or on the break.
