Match Preview: Boreham Wood

Blackpool In Emirates FA Cup Action

3 November 2017

Blackpool will hope to start another good run in the Emirates FA Cup tomorrow, having reached the fourth round last season.

The Seasiders face National League side Boreham Wood in round one of the 2017/18 competition.

It will be the second ever meeting between the teams, with a previous FA Cup tie in 2003 resulting in a 4-0 win for Blackpool.

The opposition: 

Managed by former player Luke Garrard, who also turned out for Swindon Town and AFC Wimbledon, Boreham Wood sit 10th in the table and are unbeaten in their last seven matches. 

The Wood recorded a 3-1 victory against St Alban's City to reach this round of the competition. Top scorer Bruno Andrade found the net twice in that fixture. 

Team News: 

Danny Philliskirk will push for a start after scoring a brace in the Checkatrade Trophy in midweek, though late fitness decisions will be made on Jimmy Ryan and Colin Daniel.  

Clark Robertson (foot), Kyle Vassell (hamstring) and Mark Cullen (hamstring) remain sidelined, while Curtis Tilt misses out due to suspension. 

Ex-QPR forward Angelo Balanta has recently returned to the Boreham Wood side after injury and could start for the home side.
