Garrard: Boreham Wood Belief Will Be Key To Cup Shock

Boreham Wood boss Luke Garrard says the confidence in the side will be crucial if they are to defeat Blackpool.

The FA Cup made a whistle stop tour this week in the Boreham Wood area, with the tenth placed Vanarama National League side preparing for the visit of the League One side, writes Tom Feaheny.

"I have said to the lads, we need to have that belief I have it, we are the underdog and that suits us," Garrard told the club's website.

"We have players who could play in the leagues higher, we have to show what we are all about in this great competition."

"I have no fear of going onto the front foot, against a team higher, they will respect us because we deserve it."
