Fifth tier Boreham Wood will head into the action at Meadow Park on Saturday, January 7th intent on upsetting the odds, to book a spot in the 4th round of the FA Cup.
This comes as the National League outfit prepare to play host to Accrington Stanley.
The latter, for obvious reasons, will enter proceedings as favourites to march on, owing to their place a full two divisions clear of Boreham Wood, in League One.
Accrington, though, have found results altogether difficult to come by of late.
Each of the ‘Owd Reds’ last two fixtures have culminated in defeat, amid, all told, a four-game winless streak.
And such woes have culminated in John Coleman’s men being dragged firmly into the relegation scrap in England’s third tier.
Boreham Wood, though, have not exactly been setting the world alight themselves of late.
Dating back to the beginning of last month, Saturday’s hosts have notched just a solitary win from five attempts.
Last time out, a home meeting with Barnet saw The Wood surrender an early advantage, en route to an eventual 1-1 stalemate.
This leaves Luke Garrard’s side stuck in the bottom half of the National League table, with sights set on a 2nd successive odds-defying FA Cup run to salvage a disappointing campaign.
And we at 101 do not view it as being at all out of the question that as much will continue on Saturday, albeit with Accrington Stanley, for obvious reasons, remaining the favourites to march on.
