After a somewhat history making win at The New Lawn last weekend against Forest Green, The Villagers must remain focused if they want to close the points gap to the teams above. Boreham Wood the opposition for this weekends National League fixture.
It was a great story across the non league map as Ferriby won 1-0 against Forest Green. We are only the second team to beat them at The New Lawn this season. It was a game where we looked competitive throughout, we was able to create a number of chances which is something we don’t see consistantly week in week out. Fallowfield and Tinkler came extremely close in the first half to giving us the lead if it wasn’t for two very good blocks from the Forest Green back line.Forest Green’s best chance came when Fabie Roberts hit the post from the edge of the area. It was Reece Thompsons second half header which sealed the win for Ferriby. His 9th goal of the season.
Debutant Owen Evans played very well. Clean sheet, made a number of stops to keep us in the game and also was in the National League Team of the Week. A very good start to his North Ferriby career. He said in an interview with the club that he was happy with hitting the ground running and wants to keep this standard up for the remainder of the season. His home debut up next, lets hope for more of the same.
TEAM NEWS: Kendall, Armstrong, Russell, Bateson and Brogan are again sidelined. The rest of the squad are fit to play.
This Weekends Opposition
Boreham Wood currently lie 12th in the Natuonal League. There form of late has been very poor. Only two wins in there last ten league games. Since the turn of the year, Boreham Wood have lost 7 of there last 8 away games. Something which will give Ferriby will know and be able to exploit. However there last win did come against table toppers Lincoln City back in late March. So they aren’t shy of springing a surprise.
Our previous meeting at Meadow Park saw us slenderly lose 1-0. A tough afternoon for The Villagers. Boreham Wood had he majority of the possesion with Ferriby lining up with 5 at the back. This mean’t we lost the midfield battle which killed off the game. A goal just after half time from Anthony Jeffery gave Wood the 3 points.
Player Focus: Reece Thompson
He found his goalscoring form once again last weekend and we will be looking to him once again to find the back of the net. Our top scorer with 9 goals, an impressive tally with us not being able to score many as a full team. Hopefully he will move into double figures on Saturday
