So we are playing the club that is top of the league and undefeated this season. Wrexham are left lying in their wake. I would luv to think we could give them a game, but the harsh reality of life suggests they are at least one level above us. Worse still is the trend for us to get battered by teams of real quality. So do I predict with my heart or head ? My hope is for a 2-0 win to the Stones. But my head suggests something like 0-4 to Chesterfield. Attendance 2,550
Nice try are you going with your head or your heart on this?
How many times do we see a team expecting to win just by turning up? They have drawn at Dorking, Notts County and Yeovil, winning only at Altrincham and Oldham. The attendance on Saturday is likely to be one of the lowest they have played in front of all season - Dorking currently the lowest at 2,244. Look at their away form and you'll see they do best in front of larger crowds. Also, how many of those games haven't been on grass - that's another variable to factor in.
Of course if our defence and keeper continue to communicate in different languages then we're as likely to lose to the Chelsea Pensioners 3rd XI...
I predict a tight 2-2 draw in front of 2896, a crowd swelled by their equally optimistic travelling fans.
For this most serious of threads, sadly with my head !
....with their goals coming from outside the six yard box after Haks post Bromley message, but because of our players standing off them too much (as they are not in the six yard box) and/or Mersin not having a clue where the ball is likely to come from and watch them sail past him without so much as a flinch, let alone an attempt at a save.
Bear in mind with the attendance, the game is on later as it is on BT; I think Boreham Wood is one away game ppl would consider watching in the comfort of their own home, or the pub! Not the most welcoming place and the pubs are shiiiockinly bad (imo).

Borehamstiff are likely to give us a good kicking in front of the cameras, but the Chesterfield performance gives me a bit of heart, so I'm once again going for a 1-1 draw in front of what should be an existential threatening "crowd" of 777.
