Boreham Wood were denied a point at home on Saturday as Matt Green’s late strike won a 3-2 thriller for Salford City in the National League.

The Ammies led by two at the break courtesy of Carl Piergianni and Liam Hogan but were pegged back by Ralston Gabriel and Kieran Murtagh before Green’s winner late on.

A slow start for Luke Garrard’s side saw them go 1-0 down after just six minutes when Piergianni headed in from a corner and Salford doubled the lead on 22 minutes when Hogan headed in at the back post unmarked.

Wood halved the deficit when Justin Shaibu was pushed over in the area, and Gabriel sent Chris Neal the wrong way.

Garrard's side continued to play the better football and levelled in the 70th minute when Ricky Shakes played in Murtagh to fire past Neal.

Despite the comeback, Wood were to go empty handed when substitute Green ghosted in to convert Rory Gaffney's cross and win it for Salford.

Boreham Wood were also on the wrong end of a 3-2 scoreline on Monday, losing away at Chesterfield to another late goal.

Despite a nervous start, Murtagh gave Wood the lead with an excellent free-kick that curled into the top corner, vastly against the run of play.

The Spirites then deservedly levelled just before half-time when Tom Denton chested the ball down and volleyed home.

Only four minutes after the restart, Chesterfield turned the game around when Scott Boden sent Ryan Huddart the wrong way from the penalty spot, but soon after Wood were given awarded a penalty of their own and Shaibu restored parity.

It was, though, to be another heartbreak for the away side as, in the 85th minute, George Legg spilled a shot right into Denton’s path for him to tap home and win the game.
