Competition: National League

Market: Under 2.5 goals

Odds: 6/7 @ 888sport

Two sides who will be desperate to extend on their National League play-off adventure on Tuesday night, Barnet will welcome Boreham Wood to north London.

Starting with the hosts, while Barnet might have shocked many across the National League this season as they claimed a play-off spot, Dean Brennan’s men failed to find much stability when signing off their fifth-tier campaign. Last seen over the weekend putting in a flat display on home soil as they suffered a 2-0 loss at the hands of Dagenham & Redbridge, the Bees have bagged just a single victory from any of their last nine straight appearances across all competitions. With that extended wobble stemming all the way back to a 2-0 win against Wealdstone on March 23rd, Tuesday’s hosts have shown some rather glaring recent issues in the final third. Along with playing out back-to-back 0-0 stalemates against Wrexham and Maidstone earlier in the month, Brennan’s side have failed to score more than a single goal in any of their previous seven National League appearances. It should also be noted, Barnet have seen 10 of their last 11 appearances finish with under 2.5 goals.

As for the visitors, managing to find a welcomed boost as they signed off their National League campaign over the weekend, Boreham Wood will be desperate to spring an upset in north London. Eventually claiming a 1-0 win at home against Yeovil, Luke Garrard’s side certainly went about things the hard way in their bid to claim a top-six finish. However, mustering just a pair of wins from their last six fifth-tier appearances, the Whites will know that they face another nervy test here. Left stunned last month as they signed off March with a shock 1-0 loss at home against a relegated Torquay, Garrard’s side have also shown their own attacking issues over the past few weeks. In fact, Boreham Wood have failed to bag more than a single strike in each of their last six straight outings. It should be highlighted, with Tuesday’s opponents seeing three of their last four National League meetings finish with under 2.5 goals. we are backing a similar outcome here.
