Match ends, Boreham Wood 2, Salford City 3.
Substitute Matt Green scored an 88th-minute winner at Boreham Wood to keep Salford City's automatic promotion hopes intact.
The late rally had seemed unnecessary when Graham Alexander's men grabbed two early goals.
Carl Piergianni advanced from the back and headed in from a corner before Liam Hogan doubled the advantage with another nodded finish, this time from an Ibou Touray cross.
But the hosts surged back, cutting the deficit quickly through Ralston Gabriel from the penalty spot and levelling in the second half through Kieran Murtagh.
Late on, however, against the run of play, Green stabbed in to secure the three points and leave his side two behind National League leaders Leyton Orient.
