Kwesi Appiah and Jamal Fyfield lifted Boreham Wood to their first Vanarama National League win of the season as they saw off Halifax 2-0.

Appiah had the first real chance on the half hour but the Ghanaian’s shot straight at Halifax goalkeeper Sam Johnson, who did well to keep out Fyfield’s header from the resulting corner.

But the hosts were grateful for Nathan Ashmore, who produced excellent saves to deny Jack Evans and Millenic Alli before half-time as Halifax looked to build on a season-opening win over Bromley.

They trailed after 54 minutes when Appiah got on the end of Tom Whelan’s free-kick to head home as Bromley, who battled back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Gateshead last week, took the lead.

Eight minutes later, Halifax made a hash of attempting to clear a corner and Fyfield slotted home to make sure of all three points for the Wood.
