A week later saw a completely different outcome for the young Woods chalking up an impressive 1-0 victory away to a Hoddesdon Town team who have who have proved to be something of a bogey team for Woodford in recent years.
A superb first half strike from 18-year-old Marcus Painter gave Woods the points they fully deserved for a committed display. Hoddesdon did press late on but keeper Alex Reed once again performed heroics to keep out a second half penalty and ensuring a joyful trip home for the Woodford faithful.
They now have a weekend off before hosting Cockfosters at the Harlow Arena on Tuesday evening.
