Preview of Boreham Wood's trip to Bromley in Conference South
5:58pm Thursday 14th February 2013 in Sport
Boreham Wood face Bromley for the third time this season on Saturday with a trip to Hayes Lane.
Ian Allinson will be looking for revenge after seeing his side knocked out of the F A Trophy by The Lillywhites earlier this season.
The initial tie ended in a 1-1 draw in Kent when Wood were left to rue a number of missed chances.
Looking to continue their dominance in the replay, they found the Kent side in superb form and they ran out worthy 2-0 winners on the night.
Bromley did the Conference South proud, beating Premier side Kidderminster Harriers in the following round before succumbing to one of this year’s semi-finalists, Dartford, in the next stage of the competition.
In a weather-affected couple of months, Bromley have lost their last four league matches, which leaves them 11 points and 11 places behind fifth-placed Wood.
However, the league is the probably the tightest in the country at present, with just 12 points between second bottom and sixth, so there is everything to play for, for both sides.
The visitors strengthened their ranks in mid-week with the signing of midfielder Ishmael Welsh from Chelmsford City.
For Wood it is the last game of Loick Pires' one-month loan from Woking.
The weather has not been kind to Pires as this is scheduled to be only his third game due to the snow and rain.
