Leaders Boreham Wood Whites pulled seven points clear in Division C when they defeated second placed Luton Town 2-0 at Meadow Park.

Luton were hoping to take advantage of the Wood dropping their first points of the season last week and before kick-off a mere four points separated the sides. 

Boreham Wood controlled the first half but were unable to break through a tight Luton defence. The Bedfordshire outfit took their chances on the break but hardly threatened Fred Burbidge’s goal.

The home side turned up the pressure after the break and Alex Morgan eventually pulled Boreham Wood into the lead. Dan Creese put the game to bed when he made it 2-0.

Hatters manager Stuart Smith cited defensive errors as being the team’s downfall. Although, when asked if his side’s title hopes were still alive, he commented:

“The league is still very much open and there’s no reason why we can’t win the title. We need to beat Boreham Wood the second time around.”

In reality, the scoreline could have been higher if it were not for below-par finishing.

Cameron Mawer was adamant that his Boreham Wood side proceeds with caution, saying after the match:

“There’s still a long way to go in the league with some very good teams in it. Division C still remains very open.”

Now seven points behind their title rivals, the Hatters have two games in hand over the leaders and will be looking to make up ground when they host sixth-placed Bishop’s Stortford next week.

It was a wet and windy occasion in Surrey, but that didn’t stop Staines Town delivering a fantastic performance against bottom of the table London Tigers. 

 

Massil Chabane’s brace sent Staines off to a flying start. Hamzah Adnan was also on target in the first half, which saw the home side head into half-time with a comfortable 3-0 lead.

 

The second half didn’t provide as much action as the first, with Calvin Barreto scoring the only goal for Staines.  

 

London Tigers offered little threat going forward and have now conceded 31 goals and scored five this season and remain pointless after five games. 

 

Swans manager Martyn Spong was happy with the win but admitted their performance could have been better. 

 

He said: “It was a satisfactory win but not one of our better performances, the weather was a factor that affected the game as the wind was very strong”. 

 

Staines now move up to third in Division C and are level on points with Luton Town. They still remain seven points behind top of the league Boreham Wood. 


Kings Langley’s meeting with Hitchin Town and Bishop’s Stortford match against Brentford were both postponed due to poor pitch conditions.
