Bromley v Dover Athletic preview
Bromley v Dover Athletic preview

Bromley play their last Saturday home game of the season this weekend when they entertain Dover Athletic at Hayes Lane in the National League.

The Ravens go in to the game on the back of a 3-0 defeat away at Solihull Moors on Bank Holiday Monday, a loss that saw Andy Woodman’s team slip to eleventh in the table with 62 points from 41 league matches played.

Bromley fielded a much changed line up from the 4-2 win over Chesterfield two days earlier, with Mason Bloomfield, Mark Cousins and Marcus Sablier all getting ninety minutes and Harry Forster making a sub appearance after a long injury lay off. 

Bromley can no longer make the play offs, but they do have the FA Trophy Final to focus on at Wembley Stadium the week after the league season finishes, which may influence the team selection as Woodman looks to prepare for the big day and give players game time or rest.  

Dover make the trip across Kent sitting bottom of the National League, having started the season with a twelve point deduction they have managed to claw their way back to zero points from 42 matches, but relegation has been long confirmed for Andy Hessenthaler’s team.

On Monday The Whites travelled up to Notts County, losing 1-0 to a first half goal against the play off challengers, since the start of April Dover have won one and drawn one of their last eight games. Among the Dover squad is former Ravens defender Jake Goodman, whose time at Hayes Lane was interrupted by a serious injury.                     

The teams have met twice already this season at Crabble, Bromley winning 1-0 on both occasions, courtesy of goals from Corey Whitely in the league back in September and Finlay Lovatt in the FA Trophy in December. This game could well be equally as close, with pride at stake for two familiar opponents facing up for the last time in a league game for at least a season.  

Bromley are holding a Family Day for this match with events starting at the ground from midday. 

Tickets are £20 for adults, £15 for concessions, £7 for 16 to 18 year olds and Under 16s go free, with a printed programme at £2.50. Kick off is at 3pm.
