Boreham Wood fought back to salvage a 2-2 draw at home to Wrexham in the National League on Tuesday night.

Luke Garrard’s side were heading for defeat but two late goals secured their first point of the season.

The hosts made a sluggish start and found themselves 1-0 down after just 13 minutes when Mark Harris finished off Devonte Redmond’s low cross.

Wood threatened an equaliser through Adam McDonnell but his shot was tipped over the crossbar by goalkeeper Christian Dibble.

The Welsh side went close to scoring before the break, with Harris’ shot flying just past David Gregory’s post.

Wood made a lively start to the second half and Dibble was required to tip Kieran Murtagh’s chip over the bar.

Wrexham were denied a second goal when Gregory managed to keep out JJ Hooper’s shot.

But the visitors extended their lead in the 69th minute when Bobby Grant fired his low effort into the net.

Wood were in trouble but started their comeback in the 83rd minute through Murtagh, after finishing off a cross from Sorba Thomas.

It looked like Wrexham would hold on, but three minutes into injury time a long ball fell kindly for Justin Shaibu and he volleyed into the net.

The draw got Boreham Wood off the mark following a 2-1 defeat at Torquay United on Saturday.

Garrard’s side were reduced to 10 men after 30 minutes, when Jamal Fyfield was sent off for a dangerous challenge on Manny Duku.

Torquay took full advantage as goals from Opi Edwards and Jamie Reid put them in control.

Tyrone Marsh scored a late goal for the visitors but they could not find an equaliser.

Wood will look for their first win at home to Chesterfield on Saturday.
