Boreham Wood have taken the 2021/22 FA Cup by storm and will now harbour aspirations of furthering their fairytale run when they collide with Championship club Bournemouth on Sunday. Luke Garrard’s side have already swept aside AFC Wimbledon, St Albans City and Eastleigh.
Yet to concede, the Hertfordshire-based side are currently on the best FA Cup run in the club’s history, but they will not want the journey to end now. The Wood, currently in the fifth-tier of the English football pyramid, take on another South Coast club, having already locked horns with Eastleigh.
Scott Parker will have one eye on Wednesday’s Championship clash with Birmingham as he looks to guide Bournemouth back up to the Premier League, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be taking this clash seriously. Wins breed confidence, and an FA Cup run will only bolster his reputation on the South Coast.

Bournemouth vs Boreham Wood: Match Stats
Although Boreham Wood are yet to ship in a goal since the first round, keeping three consecutive clean sheets, Luke Garrard hasn’t faced an opponent with the strike force that Parker has at his disposal. The third-placed Championship side are the third-highest goalscorers in their division this term (44), and will fancy hitting a few against The Wood to keep morale high and generate some momentum heading into their midweek clash against Birmingham. In Dominic Solanke, they have a striker who has helped himself to 18 goals (the third-most in the Championship this season), while Ryan Christie is certainly no laggard, and has registered the second-most shots of any Cherries player (22) — behind only Solanke (38).
