FAN'S VIEW: At least our away script went to plan
Bath City supporter Pete McCormack gives his take on events at Mayday Trust Park...
Boreham Wood is more famous for its television and film studios at Elstree than its football team.
Here were made such classics as Star Wars, Indiana Jones and The Kings Speech – as well as EastEnders, Big Brother and Dancing on Ice.
Bath City’s screenplay for taking a point from the Hertfordshire town on Saturday was simple but effective – another top-drawer performance between the sticks from Jason Mellor, a solid defence with Mark Preece gaining in confidence and a packed midfield in which we neatly kept possession.

The area that let the overall performance down was up front, where City did not have an outlet. Young Elliott Chamberlain did work manfully in the lone role, however.
Once again City’s away support was fantastic, with about 40 Bathonians in the disappointing 200 crowd.
It was a good result against a strong and effective team but City were unable to build on it on Tuesday night as their home hoodoo continued with a disappointing 3-2 reverse against Dorchester.
An excellent brace from Charlie Griffin was the highlight but the statistics show that we have not won at home since November and once again we have only a two-point cushion from the drop zone.
Cup glory left Dorchester with a fixture backlog and a relegation fight but two wins for them – including Saturday’s 2-1 defeat of leaders Salisbury City – have pushed them firmly up the table.
It was another freezing night and the 400 hardy souls saw a more entertaining game but, as we all know, it is results that really bring the crowds in.
A win is essential when Tonbridge Angels visit Mayday Trust Park on Saturday. I will be there for what promises to be a good afternoon of football. After such a long run without much to cheer, surely we are due something better?
With a midweek haul to Eastbourne Borough to follow, it has been a tough month for City’s small squad.
Somehow, though, we have to get a few more precious wins to ensure survival as a Blue Square Bet South side.
