Dan Holman's late goal sends Boreham Wood through

Super-sub Dan Holman sent Boreham Wood into the second round of the FA Cup as his 87th-minute strike gave his side a 2-1 victory over Blackpool.
The National League side had fallen behind to a clinical finish by Danny Philliskirk before Blair Turgott scored with his first touch midway through the second half.
The Seasiders blew a number of first-half chances - Callum Cooke fired wide early on and then had a shot blocked by Boreham Wood goalkeeper Grant Smith at close range.
The Wood almost scored with a David Stephens header on the half-hour mark before Cooke hit a post with a fierce strike just before the break.
Blackpool deservedly opened the scoring through Philliskirk but Boreham Wood bounced back following a double substitution.
Turgott crashed home from eight yards following Kane Smith's right-wing cross before Holman snatched his moment of glory with a dramatic late winner.
