Luke Garrard has stressed the importance of breeding a winning habits after seeing Boreham Wood advance to the Herts Senior Cup final with a 2-0 defeat of Kings Langley.

The Wood eased to victory in the last four clash thanks to goals from Michael Folivi and Morgan Ferrier on Monday night and can now prepare for a showpiece clash with Royston Town.

They have had to juggle their cup run with National League commitments, but Garrard believes his squad is capable of competing on two fronts and is pleased to have reached a cup final.

“It was the aim to get to the cup final from a couple of months ago when we played Stevenage,” he told the Wood website.

“It is 100 per cent a positive to have a cup final coming up. With the squad we have, we are capable of competing in the league can cup.

“Winning is a habit and clean sheets are a habit. We have had four clean sheets in a row.”

Monday night’s relatively straightforward progress past Kings was made all the more impressive by the fact Garrard named a number of changes in his starting line up.

The Wood boss believes doing so shows the strength on depth he has at his disposal and proves he can rely on his backup players in key clashes.

“We named seven or eight changes from the side which played on Saturday and it shows how strong we are,” Garrard said.

“It is a positive that we still have that calibre of personnel where we can make that number of changes and still make it through.”

Wood were made to work by Kings as Steve Conroy’s men sat in and looked to soak up pressure against their more illustrious opposition.

They will go into the final as favourites against a Royston Town side sitting sixth in the Southern League Premier Division.

Town secured their progress to the cup final with a 2-0 win over Hoddesdon Town last Tuesday evening.
