Mark Burgess is looking for his squad to bounce back from Saturday's drubbing when they travel to play at Aylesbury FC in a Calor League fixture this evening.
Having been missing at the weekend, the Woods manager is available again, as are brother James Burgess and central defender Steve Brown, and Burgo will be looking for a good reaction from his side tonight. Kick-off is 7.45 p.m. at Haywood Way, Aylesbury, Bucks HP19 9WZ, which is here.
The Woods reserves lost 2-1 at Barton Rovers in the Suburban League North Division last night; Calvin Moses scored the goal but Dave Palmer was sent off for two yellow cards.

The Woods crashed to their heaviest defeat since December 2010 when they were beaten 2-7 by lowly Marlow in a Calor Southern League Central Division fixture this afternoon.
The visitors were four-up at the break, and although Niki Muir and Karl Oliyide then found the net for Northwood, Marlow added a couple more in the closing stages as Woods desperately missed experienced central defensive pairing Steve Brown and Mark Burgess.

The Woods’ Programme Editor Ken Green has recently announced that he is to stand down from the position at the end of this season after eight years in the role in this spell and several more in an earlier period.
The club are therefore seeking to appoint a replacement, so if you are interesting in writing about football and fancy taking over this important post, or would like to find out more about what it entails, then please get in touch with Alan Evans or Ken Green or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

This Saturday, 12th April, sees Northwood FC's second Community Day, when the club invites as many people as possible to come along to a game and see what we have to offer.
Saturday's Calor Southern League fixture against Marlow is a "Pay What You Can" admission day, so please come down to Northwood Park - and tell all your family and friends!! Last year's inaugural Community Day was very successful, with the biggest crowd of the season in attendance - and we hope to do even better this time!
Northwood Football Club runs teams from Under 6s through the youth ages to Under 18s, plus the senior teams, and all will be joining together for a combined photograph of all the club’s senior and youth players - last year's picture is shown above.
Please spread the word around town; we look forward to seeing you all, the more the merrier!!

The Woods played a goal-less draw in today's Calor League fixture away to Aylesbury United, the second stalemate between the clubs this season.
Both sides created chances, but on a hard and bumpy pitch, neither could produce the quality needed to take all three points, and with Northwood now ten points off the cut, their chances of making the play-offs appear to be at an end. The match report and photos are here.
Northwood reserves won 1-0 on their away Suburban League fixture against Southall, which was switched to Chestnut Avenue - Josh Lambe hitting the winner.

Northwood player-manager Mark Burgess is refusing to rule out his side’s play-off hopes after his side staged a second-half comeback to defeat Rugby Town 2-1 last Saturday. Following that victory, the Woods were only five points behind fifth-placed Barton Rovers, albeit having played three games more.
Burgess insists Rovers can be caught, but admits Northwood are no longer masters of their own fate. He told the Ruislip-Northwood Gazette this week: "We’ve still got a chance to make the play-offs with the Rugby result, but it’s really out of our hands now. We’ve got to keep winning and if someone slips up, then happy days, if not then we lost it in the last few weeks where we dropped points by drawing games where we should be picking up maximum points against those sides.
"So we’re still going to go for it but it’s in other people’s hands now. We’ve just got to keep winning our games."
