Kabongo Tshimanga scored a brace and also missed a penalty as Boreham Wood secured a resounding 4-0 win against Stockport County in the National League on Saturday.

Tshimanga scored either side of Sorba Thomas’ first Wood goal in a dominant first-half display from the hosts, and after Ian Ormson denied the striker from the spot, Tyrone Marsh wrapped it up late on.

Former MK Dons and Oxford City striker Tshimanga opened the scoring after 19 minutes when he rounded Ormson and tapped in his seventh goal of the season.

Thomas, who had played the ball through for the first goal, then doubled the lead when his weak shot from outside the area was fumbled over the line by the Stockport goalkeeper.

Three minutes before the break, Tshimanga added his second and Wood’s third when he beat the offside trap and rifled home.

It wasn’t all plain sailing though, and Stockport showed signs that they weren’t out of it when Adam Thomas fired towards goal, but his effort was kept out by David Gregory.

Shortly after the hour mark, Tshimanga had the chance to complete his hat-trick, but Ormson guessed correctly to somewhat redeem himself from the mistake he made on the second goal.

There was to be a fourth for Wood though, supplied by Marsh to cap off a comfortable, and given the state of the league table, slightly surprising, win.

Wood welcome Notts County to Meadow Park tomorrow as they bid to make it four games unbeaten.
