Boreham Wood suffer fourth consecutive defeat
2:24pm Thursday 12th September 2013 in Sport
Boreham Wood slumped to their fourth consecutive Conference South defeat after losing 3-0 at Weston-super-Mare.
Their latest setback sent Wood down to 19th in the table and has seen them concede 12 goals in their last four matches.
The sending off of Mark Bentley at the end of the first half proved crucial in their away defeat on Saturday.
The experienced midfielder was booked for a tussle following a challenge by Martin Slocome.
Bentley was dismissed before the break when he dragged back a defender forcing the visitors to play the second half with ten men.
Weston-super-Mare took advantage after the restart when they grabbed the opener in the 49th minute after a header from Jamie Laird.
Tristan Plummer doubled the home side’s lead in the 63rd minute when he placed a shot past goalkeeper James Russell.
With just two minutes remaining, Weston-super-Mare completed the scoring when Kane Ingram made the most of a scuffed clearance from Luke Garrard.
Two talented Luton Town youngsters made their debuts after signing for Wood on 93-day loans.
Jerome Jibadu made a promising debut at right-back while forward Jake Woolley produced a decent shift.
Ian Allinson has also brought in former Dagenham & Redbridge midfielder Jake Hall and he came on during the second half of their last game.
Wood host newly-promoted Gosport Borough this weekend in the first game between the sides.
It has been a tough start to the season for Gosport after picking up just two points from their first six games.
Defender Ben Nunn is making a decent recovery from his back injury and could be in contention for the game.
