Maidenhead United 1-0 Boreham Wood

Substitute James Akintunde scored the only goal of the game to earn 10-man Maidenhead a crucial win against Boreham Wood.

The Magpies started on the front foot, with Sam Nombe firing straight at goalkeeper George Legg when well-placed, and Alfie Kilgour's header brought a superb save from Legg following a James Comley cross on the stroke of half-time.

Femi Ilesanmi's shot on the turn was comfortably saved by Carl Pentney as Boreham Wood finally threatened.

The same player drilled a shot into the side-netting on the hour, while at the other end, Legg superbly clawed away Akintunde's close-range effort.

The home side finally broke the deadlock through Akintunde's first-time shot from Adrian Clifton's pass.

They were reduced to 10 men five minutes from time when Harold Odametey was shown a second yellow card for a late challenge, but United held on.
