Justin Shaibu scored a late winner for Boreham Wood to extend their unbeaten National League run to three games with a 2-1 win over Maidenhead United.

Top-scorer Kabongo Tshimanga hit his 11th league goal of the season to put Wood ahead with only 18 minutes left, but Maidenhead looked likely to take a point when Ibra Sekajja levelled from the penalty spot.

However, Joe Ellul received his second yellow just four minutes later to leave the visitors with 10 men, and Shaibu made them pay shortly after when he struck the winner.

Kane Smith had the best chance of the first half for either side when good work down the wing allowed him to compose himself, but his strike from outside the area bounced back off the crossbar.

Wood continued to press after the break but were being left frustrated by a string of saves from Maidenhead keeper Chris Dunn, however they did finally break through in the 72nd minute when Shaibu played in Tshimanga, and he slotted into the far corner.

Less than 10 minutes later though, Femi Ilesanmi was guilty of bringing down Sekajja in the box, and the striker dusted himself down to level proceedings.

Wood were then awarded a penalty of their own when Ellul handled in the area, thus receiving his second yellow, but Tyrone Marsh’s spot-kick was saved by Dunne.

The hosts weren’t to be denied though, and Shaibu secured all three points a couple of minutes later when he poked home from Tom Champion’s flick-on.

Success moves Wood up to 13th in the table ahead of this Saturday’s visit to Hartlepool United.
