Boreham Wood produced one of the shocks of the FA Cup first as Dan Holman’s late goal dumped Blackpool out at Meadow Park.

The home side came from a goal behind to secure a 2-1 win over their League One opponents as Blair Turgott’s effort cancelled out a Danny Philliskirk opener.

Unsurprisingly it was the side from the Football League who started the brighter as the Seasiders took the game to the Wood.

They should have gone ahead with the game still in its infancy when Callum Cooke exchanged a neat one two with Philliskirk only to fire wide from a tight angle.

Wood grew into the game and fashioned their first chance when Shaun Jeffers raced clear and shot wide of the target.

The game remained tight and it took until just beyond the hour for Blackpool to score the go ahead goal.

Philliskirk showed the sort of composure which has seen him net three times in a week as he produced a neat finish with his weaker foot.

The lead lasted only six minutes, however, when substitute Turgott turned in Kane Smith’s cross with a side-foot finish from eight yards out.

From then on Wood grew in confidence and always looked the more likely to go on and win the game.

They did just that with two minute to play when Holman bundled into the net after Nick Anderton had made a hash of clearing.

For manager Luke Garrard, Wood’s win will live long in the memory and he was understandably delighted with the result.

“When it went to 1-1 I looked at the clock and I thought if the referee blew the whistle then, I would be happy,” he told the BBC.

“But we looked strong, we looked fit, so credit to the players.

“It’s about the glory of beating a league side for the first time in our history. It puts a marker down, and looking at what Sutton and Lincoln did last year, why not?”

The draw for the second round of the cup takes place this evening, with Wood being ball number 18.
