THE WOOD:

League Position: 11th (P34, W10, D15, L9)

Last Result: Yeovil Town 1-0 Boreham Wood (Saturday 17th April)

Manager: Luke Garrard  

Top Scorer: Kabongo Tshimanga (17 goals)

Luke Garrard's side sits firmly in midtable but still will hold hopes of reaching The National League play-offs for a second successive season. Ultimately, their achilles heel this season has been the sheer number of draws the Wood have totted up so far this term. Before beating Wealdstone in their last home match, they went on a run of seven successive draws which will leave Luke Garrard thinking what might have been if they had just turned a couple of those draws into victories. The Wood sit seven points off the play off places but have played more games than the majority of teams that they are currently chasing. With games ticking away, it will take a sizeable winning run from our local neighbours if they are going to finish the season the way that the Wood fans will be hoping. 

THE BEES:

What a difference a week makes! The Bees backed up their hard-fought draw with Maidenhead United, with a dominant home win over Aldershot Town. Goals from JJ Hooper, Ephron Mason-Clark and Tomi Adeloye secured the Bees the points on Saturday and they'll head to Meadow Lane full of confidence, in the hope that they can continue the good feeling amongst the team. What has been impressive has been the resilence Simon Bassey's men have shown defensively in the two matches he has taken to date, they have conceded very few chances, whilst also being threatening on the counter attack. This will be another big test for the Bees, but Bassey will believe that if the same effort can be matched again then a result may just be in the Bees grasp. 

In terms of team news, the Bees will be without the suspended Courtney Baker-Richardson who serves the third game of his three match ban. Meanwhile, Simon Bassey confirmed that Michael Petrasso is nearing a return and is back out training with the team, which will be a welcome boost to the Bees in their upcoming matches. 

LAST TIME OUT:

The Bees will be looking to avenge the 3-0 defeat they suffered in the reverse fixture.

Match Reports

Match Pack: Boreham Wood 0-0 Barnet FC

20 April 2021

The Bees continued to step in the right direction with a resolute defensive display in a goalless draw with Boreham Wood.

The host's started the better and almost took the lead on 11 minutes, as Corey Whitely danced into the area before forcing Aymen Azaze into a very good stop at his near post.

In an uneventful and scrappy opening twenty minutes, the Bees looked to bring themselves into the game but were more than matched by an organised Wood side. Our best opening came as Ephron Mason-Clark skipped down to the byline before his fizzing low cross just evaded the Barnet attackers. 

The Bees best opening came on the 30th minute as Tomi Adeloye skipped away from his man before firing a low strike which forces Nathan Ashmore into a top drawer stop. The chance came after a period of sustained pressure from Boreham Wood who were moving the ball well inside the Barnet half, albeit without creating too many clear cut chances. 

The Wood were next to go close, as the half drew to a close, as Kabongo Tshimanga fired over from eight yards under pressure from two Barnet defenders. 

At the break, it was goalless, with only the chance for Adeloye causing either 'keeper any serious problems. The Wood were certainly physical and dominated possession, but found the Bees in a resilient mood in the opening 45 minutes. 

The Wood started the second half the better and had the Bees pegged back in their own half, winning a succession of set pieces in the process. The Bees defended well and kept steady when the danger presented itself. 

The pattern continued as the time ticked past the hour mark, but again Azaze was mostly a spectator throughout, with his defence in front of him standing firm. 

With 14 minutes left on the watch, Matt Rhead flashed a powerful header wide of goal after he lost his man during a corner kick for the home side. 

Rhead was in action again as he found himself free again and with a sight of goal but his powerful header was well of target. The Wood then had back to back corners, which the Bees had to once again defend well. 

The Bees did have a couple of set pieces of their own but never managed to call Ashmore into action as we entered the final five minutes. 

The hosts chucked everything at it but couldn't find a way past a Bees side who defended incredibly throughout and secured back to back away clean sheets for the first time this season. 

The draw at Meadow Park means the Bees are now three unbeaten and head into Saturday's trip with Altrincham with a bit of momentum behind them.

Barnet FC: Azaze, Vaughan, Daly (c), Preston, Beard, Kefalas, Taylor (Richards-Everton 89'), Skeffington, McQueen, Mason-Clark, Adeloye (Faal 76').
