PREVIEW: Bromley (A)

access_time 3 years ago

Saturday’s point at Barnet saw Head Coach Justin Edinburgh’s men stretch our unbeaten run to nine games, including eight wins in the process.

Josh Coulson thought he had an injury time winner, nodding home from Dan Happe’s flick on but he was ruled offside by the officials.

The defender arguably had the best chance of the game in the first-half when Ephron Mason-Clark stabbed his header off the line to keep the score 0-0.

Bromley have only won one of their last six games (4-2 against Braintree Town), but last time out were snatched of three points by a Salford City side who scored in the 88th and 90+4th minute to win 2-1.

Our last meeting with Bromley came back in November when the Club celebrated Remembrance Day by wearing the our retro chevron shirts.

Jobi McAnuff, Josh Koroma and Macauley Bonne all struck in the second-half to secure victory after the visitors took the lead through John Goddard on 41 minutes.


Captain Jobi McAnuff will be assessed ahead of tonight’s fixture after the midfielder was withdrawn during the break at Barnet.

Jamie Turley continues to struggle with a hamstring injury so we are likely to see Alex Lawless keep his place in the team. An early return for Sam Ling is possible but Edinburgh may look to rest him until Saturday.
