Yet another win, and three points, went begging tonight when the Harriers stumbled and fumbled their way to a 1-1 draw. An early goal from new signing Zaine Francis-Angol had set us on our way with the Reds scoring first in a home game at last but then it all went wrong, yet again, after Tahvon Campbell missed a one on one with the Boreham Wood keeper and the jitters set in.
By the time the second half came we had lost our way completely and ending up giving the visitors far too much room to stoke the ball around simply and just take it easy. It was only a matter of time before they pulled the goal back and consign us to another week at the foot of the table.
We started the game with a change around up front as Campbell paired up with Reece Styche as our twin spearhead and ZFA sat just behind them and at the back Lathaniel Rowe-Turner replaced the suspended Jordan Tunnicliffe. Newly promoted Boreham Wood had former Harrier Ricky Shakes starting for them alongside Iyseden Christie lookalike Junior Morais. It was Morais who was the first to venture forward sending in a shot that went just wide of Alex Palmers upright.
Soon after that we took the lead through Francis-Angol when he got on the end of a rare decent corner from Joe Clarke and glanced the ball home with his head. We just knew it was going to be a lead that we could never keep or hope to build on convincingly with many fans in the sparse crowd convinced we would sit back and hold on to what we had. How right they were.
At times we looked good as when Campbell beat the offside trap to surge through on goal but his thought process let him down as he delayed in shooting and the ball was blocked then collected at his feet by the keeper.
That seemed to knock us back slightly and Wood took charge for a while with their best effort being a shot from distance that went wide.
Just before the break Campbell had a chance to redeem himself but his shot on the turn was well saved by James Russell.
