Ten-man King's Lynn Town well beaten by Boreham Wood

Ten-man King's Lynn Town suffered back-to-back National League defeats as Boreham Wood oozed class to record a comfortable victory at The Walks.

Kabongo Tshimanga netted twice after Matt Rhead had opened the scoring in a game that saw Lynn's Jamar Zoza sent off.

Rhead should have put the visitors ahead early on but was denied by a stunning save from on-loan Norwich City goalkeeper Archie Mair.

Mair came to his side's rescue again when denying Tshimanga one-on-one before another top stop to thwart Corey Whitely.

But he was finally beaten in the 28th minute when Rhead converted a Kane Smith cross low with his head following a visiting counter-attack.

Mair tarnished an otherwise excellent display four minutes later when he brought down Tshimanga - receiving a booking in the process - and the striker picked himself up to convert the penalty.

The dangerous Tshimanga had a goal ruled out for offside before the hosts were reduced to 10 men on the stroke of half-time when Jamar Loza saw red for a second caution.

Boreham Wood made it 3-0 in the 63rd minute as Tshimanga's shot took a deflection off Linnets defender Aaron Jones and looped over the despairing dive of Mair.

There was still time for Mair to pull off another stunning stop at the feet of Zaine Francis-Angol as Boreham controlled the game without really having to get out of second gear.

It was a comfortable night between the posts for visiting goalkeeper Nathan Ashmore as the Linnets failed to find the back of the net for a second successive game.
