Woking v Bromley preview
Woking v Bromley preview

Bromley’s hectic National League schedule continues on Tuesday night with a trip to Surrey to face Woking at The Kingfield Stadium.  

The Ravens go into the game unbeaten in three matches since new manager Andy  Woodman took charge of the first team and they picked up their first win under his tenure on Saturday with a hard fought 1-0 victory at home to Dagenham & Redbridge, the league’s top scorer Michael Cheek notching the only goal late in the first half.

Bromley have conceded only twice since Woodman came in and they were both scored in the opening seventeen minutes of his first game.

The Ravens currently sit in tenth place with 46 points from 32 league matches played, four points of the play off places with ten games to play, three at home and seven away.

Bromley’s bad luck with injuries has continued though with Jack Holland coming off with a hamstring injury at the weekend, joining Billy Bingham, Byron Webster and Liam Trotter on the list of players unavailable.

Courtney Duffus and Charlie Wakefield both returned to the bench for the Dagenham match, while Kory Roberts has yet to feature since the managerial change, so it will be interesting to see if he is brought back in to the fold for this game.

Woking are nineteenth in the National League with 32 points from 30 matches, having only won once in the last five games they drew 0-0 at Eastleigh on Saturday, despite going down to ten men for most of the second half.

Bromley & Woking have met twice already this season in the FA Trophy and the league with only a week apart between the two matches at Hayes Lane in January, both games ended in draws, 1-1 in the trophy with The Cards winning on penalties and 2-2 in the league seven days later.

Kory Roberts & Charlie Wakefield putting The Ravens two up that night before Jayden Wareham scored twice late on to secure a point for Woking.

The Cards progressed all the way to the semi finals of the FA Trophy before losing 1-0 to Hereford, which in the words of Alan Dowson effectively ended their season and he will be looking to revamp his squad ahead of next season when the club turn full time.     

This game looks set up to be equally as tight as the previous encounters this season, but Bromley will be hoping to keep their unbeaten run going aiming to keep in touch with the play off places as they begin a series of three matches away from home.  

The match is to be played behind closed doors as per the current Covid 19 restrictions, but it ca be live streamed from the official Woking FC website for £12.
