Justin Shaibu scored his fourth goal in as many days to earn Boreham Wood a point away at FC Halifax Town in the National League on Tuesday night.
Following his FA Trophy hat-trick off the bench on Saturday, Justin came into The Wood’s starting XI for their visit to The Shay and took just four minutes to strike once more, heading home Gozie Ugwu’s cross to put the Hertfordshire side ahead. Dayle Southwell levelled for the home side just before the break and that was how it finished as Luke Garrard’s side stay 11th, seven points off the Play-Off places. Justin will hope to add to his seven goals so far this term when The Wood travel to Essex to take on Braintree Town this afternoon.
Jarvis Edobor’s Maidstone United were also in action on Tuesday night with the Brentford B defender watching on from the bench as The Stones squeezed past Woking in a Buildbase FA Trophy First-Round replay. The home side needed extra-time to see off their lower-division opponents, Will De Havilland netting with four minutes remaining to give the hosts a 3-2 victory. It’s back to the grind of the National League relegation battle today for second-bottom Maidstone as they entertain Gateshead at The Gallagher Stadium.
