Boreham Wood 1-0 Maidenhead United
Substitute Danny Elliott had an immediate impact as his second-half strike earned Boreham Wood a home win against Maidenhead in the National League.
Elliot came off the bench eight minutes after the break and put Josh Rees in straight away, his shot being well saved by Maidenhead keeper Daniel Gyollai.
But three minutes later Elliott surged to put his side ahead and it proved enough to secure a first home win of the season and extend their unbeaten run to five games.
Wood squandered an earlier chance to take the lead when Tyrone Marsh – with three goals in his last two games – netted a 30th-minute penalty, awarded after Dennon Lewis was brought down over the bar.
Maidenhead have now lost four times in five games without a win and have suffered four straight road defeats, all without scoring.
