One to watch: Former Halifax forward Scott Boden scored his first goal for The Wood in their win at Bromley last time out and could flourish if given regular game-time.

Match facts: Halifax have only beaten Boreham Wood twice in ten meetings and have never won at Meadow Park.

No team has conceded fewer goals in the National League this season than Boreham Wood, who have kept four clean sheets in their first five games.

Only three players have scored more goals in the division this season than Town’s Billy Waters.

Last time they met: Femi Ilesanmi netted the winner at The Shay in May in a result that hammered a nail in the coffin of Halifax’s play-off hopes.
