Bromley v Yeovil Town preview

After Saturday’s comeback win over King’s Lynn Town, Bromley are back in National League action at Hayes Lane on Tuesday night when they take on Yeovil Town.

The Ravens go into the game having defeated King’s Lynn 3-2 in a match that saw them go behind twice before eventually clawing their way to victory in the second half thanks to two goals from Michael Cheek and one from James Alabi.

The win kept Andy Woodman’s side in fourth place with 31 points from 15 league games, four points off leaders Chesterfield with a game in hand.

Woodman was happy with his team’s response to going behind against King’s Lynn and praised Mark Cousins again for his performance in goal.  

Yeovil make the trip up from Somerset sitting thirteenth with 21 points from 14 league matches, on Saturday they won 1-0 away at Dagenham & Redbridge thanks to an own goal just on half time.

The Glovers are on a good run at the moment, Darren Sarl’s side are unbeaten in five games, while Bromley are unbeaten in eleven National League matches.

The two sides are familiar foes going back to the 1987/88 Isthmian League Premier Division title race, with Yeovil having the upper hand historically having not lost at Hayes Lane since September 1987, when Alan Scotting scored both goals in a 2-0 win for The Ravens.

The Glovers also have two ex-Bromley players in their squad in midfielder Charlie Wakefield and striker Joe Quigley.  

Last season Yeovil came to Hayes Lane in the FA Cup and the National League, winning both games 1-0 in the cup after extra time and 2-1 in the league, but Bromley did win away at Huish Park later in the season 2-1 with one from Michael Cheek and an injury time own goal either side of Rhys Murphy’s penalty. 

This looks set up to be equally as close fought and keenly contested under the lights at Hayes Lane, with both sides in form and looking to push on into the winter months near to the top of the table.  

Tickets can be purchased in advance from the official Bromley website.
