Boreham Wood will go in search of back-to-back National League victories for the first time this season as they begin life without Ian Allinson with a visit from Aldershot Town on Tuesday evening (kick-off 7.45pm).

Fresh from Saturday’s 2-0 victory over Welling United at Meadow Park, Wood will be desperate to claim another scalp when the 14th-placed Shots make the trip up from Hampshire.

Goals from Jamie Lucas and Joe Devera put Welling to the sword on Non-League Day and Barry Smith’s side were also victorious, overcoming Altrincham 2-0 to claim their third home win this season.

With 13 of their 23 points this season collected away from home, the Shots will provide tricky opposition as they seek to build on wins at Torquay United, Barrow, FC Halifax Town and Guisley already this season.

Centre-back Jack Saville scored in Saturday’s success at Altrincham – the defender’s first goal since a summer switch from last season’s Conference champions Barnet.

The 6ft 3in defender – who is the older brother of Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder George – has been a fixture at the heart of Aldershot’s defence since his summer switch, making 12 appearances.

Used frequently as a substitute to shore up Barnet’s backline late on in games last season, the former Chelsea and Southampton youngster was not offered a new contract at The Hive last season despite making 26 appearances in the league and cup for the eventual title winners.

He will, of course, be well known to Wood’s sizeable former Barnet contingent having played with Charlie MacDonald and Conor Clifford last season as well as Clovis Kamdjo and Devera previously.

Forward Charlie Walker is someone who will be well known to Wood fans following an 11-game loan spell at Meadow Park last season.

Signed on a permanent basis by the Shots after being freed by Luton Town over the summer, the Brighton-born forward has already scored seven league goals in just ten starts for his new club.

Walker, 25, began his career with Aldershot as a youngster before spells with Shoreham, Lancing, Whitehawk and Peacehaven & Telscombe preceded a move to Luton last summer.

But he failed to make a league start at Kenilworth Road last term and has since returned to the Recreation Ground with aplomb.

Walker’s form has gone a long way to replacing Brett Williams, who joined League Two Stevenage after 39 goals in 86 league starts for the club during a two-year stay.

In six meetings between the two Boreham Wood have only won on one occasion, 2-0 at the Rec in November 2001 when the clubs were battling it out in the Isthmian Premier Division.

The most recent clashes between the two clubs came during the 2002/03 season when the Shots claimed 1-0 victories home and away.
