Boreham Wood 0-1 Eastleigh

Eastleigh defeated Boreham Wood to give manager Martin Allen his first National League victory since taking charge at the start of December.

Scott Wilson scored the only goal two minutes after half-time at Meadow Park to help the Spitfires leapfrog their opponents and climb to eighth place in the table.

Wilson's goal came from a defensive mistake, with the 23-year-old striker seizing on an under-hit back pass and rounding Grant Smith.

Boreham Wood had grabbed a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw between the sides on Tuesday, but this time keeper Mark Childs came to Eastleigh's rescue with fine saves from Femi Ilesanmi and Bruno Andrade.
