Boreham Wood climbed up one place in the National League courtesy of a 1-1 draw away at Dover Athletic on Tuesday night.

Justin Shaibu put the visitors ahead after only four minutes, but the equaliser came soon after through Mitch Brundle.

Charlie Cooper came in for his first Wood start, with Sean Shields dropping to the bench.

Wood took an early lead as Cooper played an excellent through ball into Shaibu, and the Danish forward took one touch before firing past Lee Worgan into the bottom corner.

Within six minutes though the hosts drew level as Brundle made a late run into the box and headed Bobby-Joe Taylor’s free-kick past Ryan Huddart.

Shaibu continued to look menacing for the visitors, having a cross diverted away before he got on the end of another through ball that was well blocked by Kevin Lokko.

Wood also called upon Huddart later in the game as he produced an excellent save to deny Jamie Allen, which kept the score at 1-1 until the game’s end.

Wood also secured a 1-1 draw at the weekend when they played host to promotion-chasing AFC Fylde.

Neil Byrne gave the visitors the lead in the first half but Jamal Fyfield’s equaliser just before the hour mark secured a share of the spoils.

Despite a positive start in which Idris Kanu and Bradley Ash went close, it was the visitors who dealt the first blow as Tom Crawford’s shot deflected into the path of Byrne to slide past Huddart.

Shaibu then went close from a Shields cross and Kieran Murtagh forced Jay Lynch into an unorthodox save with his long-range effort.

Just before the hour mark, Wood’s pressure was rewarded when Shaibu was bundled over by Croasdale, and Fyfield was on hand to convert the rebound after Ash’s initial penalty was saved.

Murtagh and Shaibu had late chances to nick all three points, but Wood did enough to secure the draw against a good play-off chasing side.

The club’s next game sees them travel to Ebbsfleet United this Saturday, with kick-off at 3pm.
