PREVIEW: Boreham Wood v Leyton Orient

access_time 3 years ago

Justin Edinburgh’s men secured seven points out of an available nine last week, drawing with Aldershot while securing wins against Wrexham AFC and Gateshead.

Goals by Josh Koroma and Macauley Bonne were enough to secure a 2-0 win over the Heed last Saturday as the O’s moved to 50 points from the opening 23 matches.

Luke Garrard’s men currently sit in 11th place in the National League having won seven, drawn seven and lost eight of their 22 matches this campaign.

The Wood didn’t play last week but lost to Dover Athletic in their last action in the league, Inih Effiong’s 56th minute goal was enough to secure the three points.

The two sides met in August with Macauley Bonne’s 69th minute penalty enough to secure the O’s first home win of the season.


The O’s will have a fairly similar squad to choose from with Myles Judd the only major absentee. The O’s welcomed Sam Ling last week with the full back featuring for 60 minutes. Charlie Lee remains a doubt for this weekend’s fixture despite returning to training.

The Wood have no fresh injury concerns to deal with.


James Oldham will be the referee for tomorrow’s clash. The Derbyshire-based official has refereed nine games this season, booking 29 players and handing out one red card. Oldham was the official for our 1-1 draw with Eastleigh on October 30.

O’s fans have purchased over 1,000 tickets for tomorrow’s game as Boreham Wood look to break their attendance record, which was set in last season’s match where 1,264 O’s fans turned up for a 1,920 crowd.

Tickets are available to purchase on the day at the following prices:

Adult £20
OAP £15
