Boreham Wood manager Luke Garrard has described the club’s FA Trophy quarter-final clash with Lincoln City as a huge game.

The Wood booked their place in the last eight with a comprehensive 5-0 replay win over Sutton United on Tuesday night.

With Lincoln looking for promotion from the National League, as well as still being involved in the FA Cup, Garrard hopes to take advantage of their split priorities.

“It is a huge game and obviously they are flying high,” Garrard said.

“They are fighting on three fronts at the minute, so I don’t know how much regard they will pay the FA Trophy.

“They are trying to get into the Football League and with a club that size they deserve to be in the Football League, so it will be interesting to see how they go about their business.”

Lincoln’s visit to Meadow Park comes on Saturday, February 25 and Wood turn their attention to league commitments before then.

Their next match sees them face an away match against Forest Green Rovers on Saturday before entertaining York City the following week.

Green are unbeaten in five games and sit third in the table.

Garrard is, therefore, keen for his players not to be distracted by the FA Trophy fixture as Wood attempt to improve on their 13th place standing in the National League.

“We have Forest Green and York coming up. Forest Green is the main focus,” he said.

“I think Forest Green will adopt a different style from Sutton and will try and dominate the ball.

“We have to go there with the same intent, same pace and power we had on the break and hopefully we can cause them some problems on Saturday.”

Victory on Saturday could see Wood climb as high as 10th in the table, dependent on results elsewhere.

They will have to get by without Anthony Jeffrey who is ineligible to play due to being at the club on loan from Green.

He has been in good form since joining Wood on a season long deal last summer and was on song during Tuesday’s cup win.
