Idris Kanu struck a late equaliser for Boreham Wood in their 2-2 National League draw with high-flying Solihull Moors last night, which could prove vital in their relegation fight.

Nathan Blissett opened the scoring after nine minutes only for Ralston Gabriel to pull Wood level, and Adi Yusseff thought he’d won it for the visitors after 70 minutes until Kanu struck with two to go.

Wood fell behind inside the opening early on when Blissett saw his initial effort stopped by George Legg, but the save rebounded off Jamal Fyfield and went in off the post.

Soon after though, Gabriel made amends for an earlier miss when he nodded in after Solihull failed to deal with a Kieran Murtagh corner.

Solihull returned after the break with a renewed energy and Legg was equal to Blissett’s early effort, however, the keeper wasn’t able to prevent Moors from re-gaining the lead later on when Yussuf met Jermaine Hylton’s low cross on a fast break.

Wood rallied late on though and found their priceless equaliser with two minutes left to play when Femi Ilesanmi’s cross was thumped into the bottom corner by Kanu to level at 2-2.

Boreham Wood didn’t have such luck on Saturday though, going down 2-0 at home to relegation rivals Aldershot Town.

John Goddard and Scott Rendell were on target for the Shots as they looked to close the gap between themselves and survival.

Missed opportunities in the first half came back to bite the hosts when Regan Booty beat Danny Woodards down the left and drilled a low ball into the area that Goddard met to poke home.

Wood reacted quickly but saw efforts from Stephens and Gabriel well blocked, and Aldershot took advantage by going up the other end and hitting their second, Rendell converting from the penalty spot after Bernard Mensah was brought down.

The two results leave Boreham Wood just one place above the relegation zone but with a considerable seven-point gap between themselves and Havant & Waterlooville prior to Saturday’s visit to Barrow.
