Barnet vs Boreham Wood

If the last game is anything to go by, save your time - this won’t be worth tuning into!

Three red cards and a 96th minute winner, sparks flew in a Boxing Day grudge match that seriously packed a punch.

Now add in the fact it’s the play-offs and you get the feeling that we’re in for a special start tonight. It’s been a brilliant season for Barnet, from strugglers last term to contenders this but just one victory in their last eight means a second wind is required.

Boreham Wood know how to win one-off ties. Another great FA Cup run this term points at Luke Garrard’s big game management skills and five years on from taking the club to a Promotion Final, he wants to go one step further.

Woking vs Bromley

That’s the problem when you face the team who claimed the final play-offs spot.

Although statistically you probably are taking on the less capable side, you are at the same time facing the club who had to bust a gut to grab the last slot.

Bromley are unbeaten in nine matches and it was that deadly run that elevated them into the Eliminators. They also don’t let in goals, well don’t let in many. Four in seven has built a solid defensive foundation and they are very hard to beat.

But they’ll do well to dampen Woking’s mood this season.

It would be unkind to say they have only themselves to blame for not skipping straight to the semi-finals, and their best ever season has gone under the radar.

These two American owners are happy not to hog the headlines, but their progress needs to be recognise even if there’s no documentary or A-Lister attention.

Darren Sarll is chuffed with creating a little bit of history.

But he wants to go the whole way, and has two big wins against Bromley already this season to boost his hands.

Third time lucky for Andy Woodman? Well, we’re about to find out!
