Match ends, Aldershot Town 1, Boreham Wood 2.
Conor Clifford's penalty helped Boreham Wood clinch a narrow victory over ten-man Aldershot and a move out of the National League relegation places.
The Wood took the lead in the ninth minute through Ricky Snakes as he turned in Harry White's rebounded shot.
Midfielder Jake Gallagher brought the Shots level two minutes later as he beat keeper James Russell to the ball.
With 13 minutes remaining, Chris Barker saw red for handball in the box and Clifford stepped up to secure the win.
Boreham Wood move above Halifax, who have a game in hand, after the Shaymen fell to defeat by National League champions Cheltenham.
Aldershot Town boss Barry Smith told BBC Surrey:
"We know the performance wasn't good enough.
"I wouldn't say it was down to lack of effort, we just never got into a tempo, we never raised the game and they caused us problems all day.
"It's about having a winning mentality - no matter what stage of the season, no matter who we are playing.
"I think a few took their eye off the ball, which is disappointing for the fans because they've paid good money to watch these boys."
