Boreham Wood v Chesterfield
Vanarama National League. Tuesday September 4. Kick-off 7:45pm.
WHAT a difference 3 weeks makes. At that point on 52 minutes my side Chesterfield were leading at Barrow looking to make it 4 wins in a row when a red card turned the game in the hosts' favour and here we are facing Boreham Wood on the back of 5 consecutive defeats.
On paper Boreham Wood are only three points ahead of Chesterfield but they are undefeated at home (2 wins, 2 defeats) and at the moment I am struggling to see where the goals are coming from for Chesterfield. We played fairly well on Saturday but the lack of quality in the final third was obvious.
Also, we are struggling a little with injuries. Charlie Carter (who is probably our best player) and Sam Wedgebury are both long term absentees.
For these reasons I think Boreham Wood are backable at 13-10 (Coral). Seven out of 8 Chesterfield game this season has been won by a single goal either way, with all the last 5 games seeing the Spireites lose by 1. Also both of Boreham Wood's home victories have been by a single goal. So, Boreham Wood to win by 1 goal at 11-4 at bet365 also appeals.
We haven't looked atrocious at the back but as stated going forward we have looked poor. The last 3 games have all ended in 1-0 defeats, so, it might be worth having a small stake on another 1-0 defeat for Chesterfield at 6-1 (Coral),
