Boreham Wood v Chester FC.
When and where?
Saturday, August 20 (3pm) at Meadow Park, Broughinge Road, Borehamwood, WD6 5AL.
Any team news?
Following Chester's 3-2 defeat at Barrow on Tuesday evening Blues boss Jon McCarthy suggested that he may shuffle his pack for the trip to Hertfordshire.
After registering a goal and an assist in his 30 minute spell off the bench at Holker Street, James Akintunde could get be handed his first start while Ryan Lloyd will be pushing to play from the first whistle after the loanee impressed as a substitute at Barrow.
Ross Killock is nearing a first-team return but this weekend will likely come too soon for him while skipper Luke George, who missed the defeat at Barrow with a hamstring injury, has trained this week and could be in line for a return.
James Alabi serves the second of a three-match ban following his sending off in the 3-1 loss to Maidstone United on Saturday.
For Boreham Wood, midfielder Conor Clifford will miss the contest after being sent off in the 1-0 loss at home to Tranmere Rovers in midweek.
The former Chelsea youngster was shown a second yellow card and will serve a one-match ban.
Tell me about Boreham Wood...
The Wood have started the season in fine form and sit in fifth place having yielded seven points from their opening four games.
Despite having a tough schedule to start the National League campaign Luke Garrard's side have registered wins over Forest Green Rovers and Dover Athletic as well as earning a point at newly-relegated York City before falling to their first defeat at home to title favourites Tranmere.
Having been promoted from the National League South in 2015 the Wood did well to keep themselves afloat in non-league football's top tier last season and, with increased financial backing, are fancied to be in amongst the top sides this season.
They include in their ranks former Queens Park Rangers and MK Dons striker Angelo Balanta. The Colombian has found the net once this season and has the talent to make a huge impact at this level.
What has Jon McCarthy had to say about it?
The Blues boss said: “They have got good resources and they did really well last year to keep themselves in the division in that first year.
“They have settled and are looking to push on with the recruitment and the players they have brought in.
“They've had a good start. It's another tough test but we don't fear Boreham Wood.”
What happened the last time we met?
A Harry White goal at the death salvaged a 2-2 draw for Boreham Wood when they visited the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium in April.
Kick off for the game had been delayed for almost an hour after motorway traffic had left the visitors stranded and forced to get changed on the coach.

Rooney struck a free kick on 65 minutes to restore Chester's lead before White found the net late on for Wood.
