FC Halifax Town 3-2 Boreham Wood

Conor Hughes' injury time winner helped Halifax claim all three points in a relegation tussle against Boreham Wood.

The hosts struck twice in quick succession in the first half as Jordan Burrow netted from six-yards before James Bolton headed in from a corner.

Boreham Wood's comeback started with Harry White's header before Jamie Lucas levelled with a lovely curling shot.

But Hughes' late goal saw Halifax climb out of the relegation places and above Boreham Wood in the process.
