Justin Shaibu nets in dramatic Boreham Wood draw on Tuesday night

The midweek action for our players away from Griffin Park

27 November 2019

Justin Shaibu scored his second goal in three games last night as Boreham Wood extended their unbeaten run to five games in the National League with a 2-2 draw away at Notts County.

Justin nodded The Wood in front after 15 minutes, but an Andy Wootton brace had the hosts in front at the break. There was then late drama with Connell Rawlinson bringing down Kabongo Tshimanga inside the box a minute into injury-time, the County midfielder was sent off as Sorba Thomas kept his nerve from the spot. Wood are 14th at the mid-point of the season, six points off the Play-Offs ahead of Saturday’s home game with Woking.

Woking prepared for that game with a 2-1 win at home to Jayden Onen’s Bromley last night. Jayden was an unused substitute as Dave Tarpey and Jake Hyde scored either side of the break as The Cards came from behind to win. Bromley, who dropped to third after the defeat, host Yeovil Town on Saturday.

Jaden Brissett was not in the matchday squad last night as Maidenhead United shaded a seven-goal thriller at Dover Athletic. Jake Cassidy scored twice as The Magpies opened up a six-point cushion between them and the relegation places as Barrow make the long-trip south this weekend.

Reece Cole’s fine form for Partick Thistle continued last night as he picked up the Man of the Match award following their 1-1 draw at home to Alloa Athletic in the Scottish Championship. Alan Trouten gave Alloa an early lead, but The Jags levelled before the break through Dario Zanatta. Reece was inches away from providing a dramatic late winner as his free-kick was tipped onto the bar by visiting keeper Jamie MacDonald. The point means Partick remain bottom, two points behind last night’s opponents, with a trip to Dunfermline Athletic coming up on Saturday.
