Northwood made it three wins out of four in the Bostik South Central Division after producing a superb second-half comeback to overhaul a two-goal deficit to win 3-2 and avenge a defeat they suffered at the hands of opponents Bedfont Sports in November.

First-half goals from Perry Luckins and Abdul Abdeen put the visitors in the driving seat at the interval on Saturday, but a second-half brace from Alex Witham, including one from the penalty spot, got Scott Dash’s men level before Zaied Sabti completed the comeback in injury time to leave Woods 10th in the table.

After a bright start, the hosts fell behind in the seventh minute when Luckins headed home a cross from a partially cleared corner.

The blustery conditions increasingly favoured Sports as the first half unfolded and they certainly played a part in the visitors doubling their lead in the 31st minute when Abdeen’s deflected cross caught the wind and flew over goalkeeper Luke Sheldrick.

Some stern words were doubtless spoken at the interval and they appeared to have the desired effect as Northwood looked a different proposition after the break.

They were soon back in the game when Tremayne Charles got round the back of the defence and squared for Witham to finish with ease after 52 minutes.

The pressure continued to mount and it was rewarded 19 minutes later when Witham netted his second from the penalty spot after Charles had been blocked in the area by the Bedfont keeper.

Substitute Kyran Worrell was thwarted by a last-ditch tackle in the closing stages, but Woods were not to be denied and Sabti calmly converted after running onto Chris Gosling’s defence-splitting pass.

There was also a decisive injury-time goal at Broadwater, but on this occasion it worked against Berkhamsted as Bedford Town snatched a 2-1 win in Evo-Stik South Premier Division Central.

The home side had taken the lead in first-half stoppage time when Matt Bateman’s headed flick released Jonathan Lacey and he capitalised.

James Peters was to equalise on 62 minutes though, and Berko’s efforts to hang on for a point were to be thwarted when Dan Walker netted the winner with a deflected shot.
