Injuries take their toll

Injuries take their toll
Boreham Wood 1 Woking 1
29 August 2015

The thinness of Garry Hill’s squad was all too apparent in the closing stages of this game as Keiran Murtagh, who had been switched to central defence to partner Brian Saah following injuries to Joey Jones, Mark Ricketts and Ismail Yakubu, strove manfully to prevent the home side from grabbing all three points in a game which, at half-time, had looked fairly comfortably in Woking’s grasp.

Woking continued to look the more likely side to score, with Daniel firing at the keeper from close range after working his way to the near post, with Holman free inside him. But the Wood also had a good spell around the 25-minute mark, prompted largely by Billy Clifford, ending with Luke Howell firing over the bar. Danny Woodards also made a fine run down the Woking right, his cross zipping right across the Woking area.
