While Boreham Wood haven’t exactly set this league alight so far this season, they’ve performed a lot better than Braintree, who, down in 22nd place, are really struggling. Things haven’t gone well for the hosts so far and, having lost four of their last five, it’s hard to fancy them here, even as the home side.
At odds of 13/8, ‘Boreham Wood to Score Over 1.5 Goals’ is the bet to be on in this fixture. The hosts have looked very poor defensively on late, while, in contrast, Boreham Wood have looked quite good going forward.
The visitors have scored in each of their last five away matches and although they’ve only scored two or more in one of those, they’ve faced much tougher task than Braintree. Against a side who’ve shown themselves to be poor at the back (conceding two goals on average at home this season) they are fancied to find the net a couple of times.
The fact that Braintree have conceded two or more in three of their last five at home, conceding a total of 11 in those five, bodes well.
In addition, the visitors have in their ranks a centre-forward who’s got a taste for goals lately. Morgan Ferrier has scored five goals recently and will surely be itching to get at this less than secure Braintree back-line.
