Maidstone United vs Boreham Wood match preview and thoughts for the day

Maidstone United hat

Bank holiday Monday the Stones return to the Gallagher Stadium after a long stint on the road.

Maidstone United managed to pick up an impressive six points from nine on their travels.

The Stones returned to winning ways on Good Friday with a three-one victory against Wrexham.

The match saw Magnus Okuonghae make his debut and the centre back had an impressive game.

Mangus has certainly staked his claim for a first eleven start against Boreham wood.

The midfield played well against Wrexham and unless Stuart Lewis is one hundred per cent fit you would expect Jay Saunders not to risk him in this contest.

Alex Flisher grabbed a headed goal and was a thorn in Wrexham’s defence.

Flisher has worked hard in the first team and whilst goals have been elusive his performances certainly have not been.

In the front line, Joe Pigott and Jamar Loza added to their tally and Yemi Odubade played well.

I cannot see Jay Saunders changing the team too much unless Stuart Lewis is declared one hundred percent fit.

The Stones have fifty-three points but are not mathematically safe and it would be a mistake for the squad too believe they are safe at this stage of season.

The ground, the impressive North Stand and the support is one that belongs to a National League team.

The National League is where we want to be, if we stay up, manage to keep a lot of the squad we should be aiming for a play-off spot next season.

Ambitious yes but the we need to strive to be the best we can be and the nine-game unbeaten run proved the Stones can compete with the best in the league.

Boreham Wood are eleventh in the National League a comfortable mid table side.

The Stones certainly have an opportunity to gain three points in this game.
