Boreham Wood came from two goals down to beat Bishop’s Stortford on penalties and book their place in the Herts Senior Cup final for a third consecutive season.

A horror first-half showing saw Wood trailing 2-0 at the break before fighting back to level the tie and win it on penalties.

Manager Luke Garrard told his club’s website: “First half we were woeful, worst we have started a game all season. We set up with a 3-5-2 formation and the personnel out on the pitch just couldn’t cope. As soon as we cleared our lines the ball just kept coming back and deservedly so we found ourselves two goals behind.

"I had to do something so changed to a 4-3-3 formation. I have to give the players credit for their second half performance though.”

His side fell behind in the tenth minute after a defensive mix-up and there looked to be no way back when the hosts added a second on the half hour.

But Wood were a different proposition in the second half. Conor Clifford halved the deficit from 35 yards and Danny Haynes produced the equaliser after a goalmouth scramble.

They couldn’t find a winner in normal or extra-time though, despite having the chances so it came down to the lottery of penalties.

Both sides missed their first spot kicks, but the next 11 were all scored before James Russell saved from Kenzer Lee to put the Wood in their third final in three seasons.
