Havant & Waterlooville 0-0 Boreham Wood

Havant gained their first point in the National League with a hard-fought 0-0 draw at home to Boreham Wood.

Ellery Balcombe pulled off an amazing close-range stop for the visitors in the first-half after Andy Robinson intercepted David Stephens' poor pass.

The visiting keeper was also on top form to deny Wes Fogden with a bullet header.

Balcombe smothered a prospective chance for Hawks forward Nicke Kabamba as he bore down on goal as the hosts pressed for a a first win since gaining promotion last season.

After the break, affairs remained tight and even last-season's 20-goal man Angelo Balanta could not make an impression.

Ryan Young saved well from substitute Bradley Ash late on to get the Hawks off the mark.
