Dover will be aiming for a third consecutive win on Tuesday night at Crabble, but recent history does not make good reading for Chris Kinnear’s side.
You see, Whites have lost their last three games to The Wood, conceding 12 and scoring just once in the process.
However, only four players from the current squad featured in any of those games and Athletic go into the match buoyed by recent victories at Tranmere and Aldershot.
Boreham Wood manager Luke Garrard has bought in eight new players over the summer, including recent loan signing Blair Turgott from Stevenage.
The striker scored 12 goals for Bromley in the National League last season.
BOREHAM WOOD’S RECENT FORM
BOREHAM WOOD 2-0 LEYTON ORIENT
Dan Woodwards and Kieran Murtagh were on the scoresheet as Wood beat Orient in front of a record crowd of 1,920 at Meadow Park.
Woodards opened the scoring on 34 minutes with a half-volley after Bruno Andrade and David Stephens both missed chances for the hosts.
Murtagh doubled the lead five mins after the break, sliding home Andrade’s pull-back.
The win sees Luke Garrard’s men climb up to eighth spot on the ladder.
14/03/17: BOREHAM WOOD 5-0 WHITES
Dover suffered their equal heaviest defeat of the season after crashing to a 5-0 loss.
Ricky Shakes led the way for the home side with a hat-trick while Bruno Andrade bagged a double.
Wood broke the deadlock in the 56th minute when Andrade raced through to lob over Steve Arnold after Jamie Grimes slipped while trying to get the ball back to his goalkeeper.
Shakes doubled the advantage 11 minutes later – in controversial circumstances.
Arnold appeared to have the ball in his hands after sliding out to save before Shakes’ challenged and then raced towards goal to score, despite the Dover appeals.
The hosts added a third in the 70th minute when Andrade slotted home the rebound after Shakes had beaten Arnold to a long ball over the top.
Shakes completed his hat-trick with two goals in three minutes after two lightning breaks from inside his own half as his side completed the double over Dover this season.
