Match Previews

Boreham Wood vs. Latics

6 December 2022

© Eddie Garvey

Latics travel south to Boreham Wood in pursuit of a much needed three points in the National League.

Last time out saw a 2-1 defeat at Solihull Moors, meaning David Unsworth’s side will be looking to bounce back and start a climb up the table.

The opposition

Boreham Wood were founded in 1948 as a result of a merger of Boreham Wood Rovers and Royal Retournez.

The fith tier of English football is the highest that they have ever played at as a club and they reached this level in the 2014/15 season following success in the Conference South playoffs.

The highest finish that they have achieved came in the 2017/18 season when they achieved qualification to the playoffs with a fourth placed finish.


Form guide

Boreham Wood’s form in the National League has been patchy of late but they have more than made up for that in the FA Cup.

They have gone seven games without a win in the league, with their last league success coming against Wealdstone in early October.

However, they find themselves in the third round of the FA Cup following a brilliant 2-0 win over Sky Bet League One’s Bristol Rovers.

They currently sit in 12th position in the National League, five points away from the playoff places.

The Wood’s last six games

Eastleigh 1-0 Boreham Wood

Bristol Rovers 0-2 Boreham Wood (FA Cup round two)

FC Halifax 1-0 Boreham Wood

Boreham Wood 0-1 Woking

Boreham Wood 1-1 York City

Boreham Wood 3-1 Eastleigh (FA Cup First Round)


Watch out for

Lee Ndlovu is the man likely to lead to line for the hosts.

The 27-year-old forward joined Boreham Wood this summer from Brackley Town and has six goals to his name so far this season.

He was part of the Brackley side that came so close to promotion from the National League North last term as they pushed Gateshead all the way for the title.

He was a big part of that side, netting 14 league goals to help his side to a second place finish and earning him a move to the fifth tier with Boreham Wood.

He will be looking to add to his tally when his side welcome Latics to Meadow Park.

In the dugout

Luke Garrard is the man in the dugout for the hosts.

The 37-year-old has been in charge at the Wood since October 2015, which made him the youngest boss across England’s top five leagues.

He oversaw the club achieve great things in the FA Cup, reaching the fifth round where they eventually lost to Premier League side Everton.

Garrard also represented Boreham Wood as a player.


The odds

The hosts are odds on favourite with Sky Bet to win all three points, priced at 10/11.

Latics are 14/5 to get a much needed victory to boost their standings in the National League whilst the draw is at 12/5.

Match officials

The referee is Michael Barlow, and he’ll be assisted by Adam Nichol and Martin Parker, with Stephen Rushworth occupying the role of fourth official.

As always, we will endeavour to ensure confirmation of the line-up is published as soon as possible on social media.

However, supporters should note that team sheets in the National League are not exchanged until an hour before kick-off. This is 15 minutes later than in the EFL and as a result, the line-up is likely to be published slightly later than in previous seasons.

Match Reports

Boreham Wood 2-1 Latics

6 December 2022

Latics had a draw snatched away from them right at the death thanks to a Lee Ndlovu winner in stoppage time.

Unsworth’s team started the game brightly, and were definitely the better of the two sides early on.

Ellis Chapman had a good chance from a corner, he tried his luck from a volley and saw his effort fly just wide of the post.

Boreham Wood came into the game a tad, Femi Ilesanmi’s cross found Ndlovu who attempted an overhead kick, but failed to make contact.

Latics looked to have a great chance when Tollitt hit the hosts on the counter-attack, he was tactically fouled, but the referee played advantage as Reid picked up the ball, before being fouled himself.

The Wood had a golden chance to go ahead just before half–time, Zak Brunt picked out the unmarked Ilesanmi in the area, but the defender could only aim his header straight at Norman.

Latics went in at half-time with the better share of possession and chances.

Oldham came out in the second-half looking bright, Ben Tollitt was the main avenue of Latics attacks.

He cut in from the left-flank and had a shot on goal, finding the wrong side of the near post by a few inches.

The midfielder had an even better chance a few moments later, he cut in again, this time seeing his strike ricochet off the crossbar.

Boreham Wood went a goal up against the run of play when Dennon Lewis’ cross was bundled over the line by Ndlovu.

Latics then threw everything at the home side, Hope was denied after doing well to work his way into the box from the wing.

The equaliser came when Hope found Tollitt in the box with a sweet pass, with the 28-year-old smashing home his shot from 10-yards.

Oldham weren’t settling for a point, and pushed for another goal. Abraham and Hope both pressed Ashmore in the Boreham Wood goal into firing his clearance into them, just for the ball to land in his arms as he recovered.

Latics were dealt a sickening blow in the third minute of stoppage time when George Broadbent fired a cross into the box, with Ndlovu getting the final touch to divert it past Magnus Norman.

Oldham Athletic: Norman, Hogan, Gardner (Rooney 57), Hope, Sheron, Tollitt, Reid (Abraham 67), Kitching, Peck, Chapman, P Clarke.

Subs not used: Hudson, Maynard, Couto.

Attendance: 801 (186)
