Notts County can consider themselves unlucky to be playing in this match, but they are red-hot favourites to win and progress to Wembley, where they will be the clear favourites to secure promotion to League Two. The Magpies finished the National League season on 107 points with a goal difference of +75. That would have seen them promoted automatically in every other season since the league was founded in 1979. Boreham Wood may have finished 35 points below County in the play-off positions, but they have shown the potential to cause them problems. Wood led Notts County until the 56th minute at Meadow Lane and held firm late on to claim a point. In the reverse fixture, they came from behind twice to earn a 2-2 draw, while they also held Wrexham to a 1-1 draw. The visitors have avoided defeat in 21 of 27 away matches in all competitions, including a 2-0 win against Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup. Despite all of that, Notts have the ability to raise their game to a level that Boreham simply can't match. County at their best look like they would survive comfortably in League Two, so they should have too much quality on the day.
