James Gray is hoping Boreham Wood go on to win the Herts Senior Cup after they knocked St Albans City out in the semi-final on Tuesday.

Goals either side of half-time from Callum Reynolds and Matthew Whichelow were enough to down the Saints and extended their run without a win to eight in all competitions.

The Saints’ joint manager admitted his side had shown signs of life in the tie – a stark contrast to Saturday’s loss to Concord Rangers – but the result was never going to go their way.

“We huffed and puffed and there was an improvement from Saturday so we’ll take some positives out of it,” he said. “But it’s difficult to take; we were a million miles off Boreham Wood.

“It was always going to be difficult, and, if I’m honest, I wasn’t expecting anything out of game because they’re too far ahead of us. We’re playing catch-up.

“I don’t begrudge loosing to Boreham Wood; they’re a fantastic side and their organisation and passing and movement was superb. I hope they go on and win it.”

Boreham Wood meet Hemel Hempstead in the final after the Tudors beat Berkhamstead 2-1.
