Boreham Wood continued to impress in the National League as they ran out 2-1 winners away at AFC Fylde.

The game was locked at 1-1 at the break after Kabongo Tshimanga’s opener was cancelled out by Jordan Williams, but Jamal Fyfield notched the decisive goal 17 minutes from time to move Wood up to fifth in the table.

Wood initially struggled to adapt to the difficult condition in the North West, and it was Fylde who had the first opportunity of the game after nine minutes, but Williams saw his effort deflected narrowly wide.

Nick Haughton also came close for the Coasters after completing a mazy run through the Wood defence, but he was thwarted by the final obstacle as Nathan Ashmore produced the save.

Despite being up against it in the opening 20 minutes, it was Wood who took the lead when a hopeful ball over the top from Tyrone Marsh put Tshimanga through, and he made no mistake with the finish past Sam Hornby.

Fylde continued to press and after having a goal ruled out for a foul on Ashmore, they got the equaliser minutes later when Williams bundled the ball home from a corner.

Both sides continued to slog away at each other in the second half, although Fylde will rue missing an excellent opportunity which was thwarted by Kane Smith’s excellent last-ditch tackle.

That allowed for Wood to snatch the winner on 74 minutes as Fyfield got on the end of a corner and diverted the ball under Hornby.

Next up for Wood is a trip to Aldershot Town on Saturday, February 15.
