Hayes & Yeading 0 Boreham Wood 1
HAYES & Yeading slipped to their first league defeat of the season at home to Boreham Wood on Saturday.
A first-half Omer Riza penalty was enough for the Wood to snatch the three points at Kingfield and move joint top of the division.
The game’s crucial moment came after 30 minutes when Danny Wishart sent Chez Isaac tumbling and Riza converted the spot-kick.
Record appearance holder Tom Cadmore (pictured) struck the inside of the post with an excellent free-kick but the hosts could not find a way through.
The result leaves United eighth in the Blue Square South standings after the first three rounds of fixtures.
Nas Bashir’s side trail joint-leaders Bath, Boreham Wood and Salisbury by three points with a visit to Basingstoke Town to come on Bank Holiday Monday.
Hayes & Yeading: Ingram, Spence, Wishart, Pele, Cadmore, Cox, Bentley (Goddard), Ekim (Anderson), Oyenuga, Williams Joseph.
