The Coasters travel down to London looking to make it four wins out of four on the road which has seen the Coasters rise up the table and go within a point of Saturday’s opponents. A 2-2 draw with Solihull on Tuesday night saw the Coasters pegged back after leading 2-0, however, a point against a top four side is still a decent result. Goals from Nick Haughton and Danny Ormerod gave the Coasters a comfortable first-half lead where there could have been more goals for Fylde.

However, after the break, Solihull showed why they are playoff contenders and dominated the second half for large parts. Resolute defending from Fylde earned them a point which could have been all three if Josh Kay’s strike hadn’t hit the bar late on.

With one point separating the two sides, Saturday’s contest should be a close affair and with the league being so tight in terms of points both sides could enter the top half of the table with a win. Four points separate Dagenham in 11th and Dorking in 21st which shows that every point is vital at this stage of the season to avoid the drop.

However, with the Coasters in good away form, Chris Beech will be wanting his side to make it 4 from 4 on the road and give a little breathing space between Fylde and the relegation pack.

The Opposition

The word to describe Boreham Wood this season would be inconsistent. Can easily go on a five game winning run or a five game winless run. With Luke Garrard one of the most exciting managers at this level and some quality talent, some would argue that Boreham Wood are performing below expectations. 

With the second most draws in the league, Garrard’s problem has been turning draws into wins and gaining that ruthless streak which should see them higher up the division. The loan signing of Tshimanga will certainly help at that end of the pitch, but 56 goals conceded is the 4th worst in the division. 

Late goals conceded against York and Eastleigh suggest their defence is switching off at the wrong time and maybe concentration is a potential issue. However, unlike Fylde, Boreham Wood did not play on Tuesday night so will be looking to amend last Saturday’s defeat against Hartlepool. A win on Saturday could really kick start Boreham Wood’s finish to the season and maybe could see them sneak into the playoffs if results go their way. 

Classic Clash

This week’s classic clash comes from 2019 when the Coasters were lingering at the bottom of the league and were without a manager. Interim managers John Hills and Brett Ormerod stepped up to the plate and delivered 3 points on the road. A brilliant Andy Taylor strike and a last-minute goal from Dan Bradley sealed the win for the Coasters after a brilliant defensive performance which was epitomised by Alex Whitmore’s tackle on Kabongo Tshimanga at 0-1.

Key Players

Nathan Ashmore: The shot stopper who will be well known to any non-league enthusiast. Good distribution as well as the ability to save anything in the air, Ashmore is unlucky not to get a look in at an EFL side. Well known for playing at Ebbsfleet as well as the Wood, Coasters will have to be at their sharpest to beat Ashmore.

Femi Ilesamni: The left back with an unbelievable work rate and desire to win football matches, Femi is a key part of Boreham Wood’s side. A very experienced defender who’s confident on the ball, Femi will have an interesting battle on the Coasters right side.

Kabongo Tshimanga: A striker who has recently been playing at League one Fleetwood Town is certainly no stranger to the National League. A threat against any team with his pace and movement and a natural ability to put the ball in the net. With an amazing record at this level, keeping Tshimanga quiet will be some task.
