New signing Kabongo Tshimanga scored a brace as Boreham Wood drew 2-2 with Chesterfield in the National League.

Tshimanga, signed from Oxford City in the summer, opened the scoring with a penalty after 15 minutes and levelled the game after Scott Boden and Jonathan Smith had put the Spirites in front.

The striker won the penalty too after he was tripped in the area, and his confident effort down to Shwan Jalal’s left was the perfect start for the hosts.

However, Chesterfield levelled 11 minutes later when Boden tapped home Joe Rowley’s cross, and Jonathan Smith nodded in from a corner to give the visitors a 2-1 lead at half-time.

Less than 10 minutes into the second half, though, Wood were level once again as a long-range effort from Tshimanga deflected past Jalal to make it 2-2.

The Spirites were forced to see out the game with 10 men when Laurence Maguire – brother of Manchester United defender Harry – caught Kieran Murtagh with a high challenge, but neither side were able to find the net in the remaining minutes, and Wood collected their second point of the season.
