Competition: National League
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 2/3 @ Pribet
In what could prove to be a lively National League showdown on Wednesday night, Boreham Wood will welcome Eastleigh to Meadow Park.
Starting with the hosts, although Boreham Wood might have been tipped as a leading contender to claim another play-off ticket this season, Luke Garrard’s side have struggled to find any kind of stability. Last seen over the weekend settling for an action-packed 2-2 stalemate away at Bromley, the Hertfordshire-based outfit have recorded just a single National League victory from any of their previous five appearances – a run that stems back to a 2-1 win against Oxford City on December 16th. Despite signing off 2023 with a 2-1 victory away at Kidderminster, Garrard will have a real headache over his side’s extended issues at the back. Suffering an infamous 6-0 drumming at the hands of Barnet last month, Boreham Wood have remarkably failed to secure a single clean sheet from any of their previous 15 straight contests across all competitions. However, it should be noted, Wednesday’s hosts have seen 12 of their last 13 National League matchups finish with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, although Eastleigh might still be dreaming of the chance to mount a play-off charge this season, Richard Hill’s side are enduring a recent struggle. Last seen crashing out of the FA Cup following a routine 3-1 loss at home against Newport, the Spitfires are without a win from any of their previous five appearances across all competitions. Signing off 2023 with a 4-1 drumming away at Dagenham & Redbridge, the Hampshire-based outfit have continued to show their own respective defensive issues. Opening the New Year with an action-packed 4-4 stalemate against the Daggers on home soil, Eastleigh have remarkably failed to muster a single clean sheet from any of their last 16 straight showdowns – a run that stems all the way back to October 14th. It should also be highlighted, Hill’s downbeat squad have gained a reputation for their lively outcomes away from the Silverlake Stadium. In fact, including a 5-3 victory away at Aldershot last month, all of Eatsleigh’s last eight matchups outside of Hampshire have finished with both teams getting on the scoresheet.
