Boreham Wood boss Luke Garrard says nothing other than a win will be good enough as his side return to National League South action at Bromley on Tuesday evening (kick-off 7.45pm).

Last season’s Conference South champions have raised eyebrows with their impressive start to life in the National League and find themselves in fourth spot, having scored more goals than any other side to date.

They also boast the third best home record in the division and the best over the last six games with Barrow, Chester, Kidderminster Harriers, Macclesfield Town and Gateshead all defeated in that spell.

One crumb of comfort for Wood will be the fact Cheltenham were victorious at Hayes Lane in Bromley’s last home fixture.

Wood were beaten 3-2 by the Ravens at Meadow Park earlier this season and looking ahead to the return meeting, Garrard said: “Nothing other than a victory will be good enough, that is my message to the players.

“We are on a journey this season and every single one of them needs to stand up and be counted.

“It took an immense effort to get to this league and I am not prepared to see that effort go to waste.

“There were two or three decent individual performances up at Northwich and that is not acceptable.”

Forward Moses Emmanuel is the Ravens’ dangerman and leads the National League scoring charts with 13 goals from just 17 starts, one of which came in victory over Wood in the middle of September.

Last month the Kent side recorded three wins and one draw from their six fixtures. In comparison, Wood managed one win and three draws.

However, September was a month of stark contrasts for the two sides with Mark Goldberg's Ravens picking up six wins from six. Wood could only manage one win, whilst losing their other five matches.

One of those defeats came at Meadow Park when goals from Ben May, Bradley Goldberg and Emmanuel, with replies from Scott Doe and Charlie MacDonald, saw Bromley win by the odd goal in five.

It will be a tall ask to given that the two sides have met 13 times since Wood joined the National League setup, winning just once and that was at home on Bonfire night in 2011.
