Boreham Wood failed to build on last week’s win over Dover Athletic after they were held to a goalless draw against Harrogate Town on Saturday.

Kabongo Tshimanga and Kieran Murtagh both went close for the visitors but neither side really looked like scoring in what proved to be a drab affair.

Luke Garrard made just one change to the starting 11 that beat Dover, with Tom Champion coming in to replace Jordan Thompson.

Tshimanga had the first opportunity of the game for the visitors but failed to keep his effort on target from what proved to be the only real moment of creation from either side in the opening period.

Murtagh went one closer than Tshimanga in the 68th minute when a cross was planted perfectly on his head, but he forced a good save from Harrogate keeper James Belshaw.

Two minutes later, the Yorkshire side should have taken the lead themselves, but Brendan Kiernan was guilty on this occasion as he blazed over from close range.

Mark Beck had the final opportunity of the game for either of the sides, but he header over the target with 15 minutes remaining to seal the stalemate and leave both sides hanging two points above the relegation zone.

Next up for Garrard’s side is a home game against newly-promoted Stockport County this Saturday at 3pm. The Hatters have been going well so for upon their return to the National League, currently sitting eighth in the table, but suffered defeat last time out against struggling Aldershot Town.
