Boreham Wood 0-1 Braintree Town
Michael Cheek's second-half goal helped Braintree Town earn a hard-fought victory at 10-man Boreham Wood.
The Iron had the better of the first-half, with Boreham Wood keeper Grant Smith forced to make a smart stop from Simeon Akinola's free-kick
Wood then saw defender David Stephens sent off for picking up a second yellow card early in the second period.
And Cheek scored the only goal of the game when he tapped in after the hosts had failed to clear a cross.
The result extended Braintree's unbeaten run to four games and lifted them out of the relegation zone, while Boreham Wood remain ninth.
