Woking v Bromley preview
Woking v Bromley preview

In the biggest game of their campaign so far, Bromley travel to Surrey tonight to take on Woking in their National League Promotion Eliminator Match, with Chesterfield waiting to face the winner in the semi final on Sunday afternoon.

Andy Woodman’s side ended their league campaign with a 1-1 draw away at Oldham Athletic on Saturday, James Vennings with the equaliser, his first goal of the season.

Woodman rested a few key players for the game and also hinted at some injury problems, club captain Byron Webster made a return from injury and Callum Green was given his debut off the bench.

The draw saw The Ravens finish in seventh place with 71 points from 46 league games, a National League points record for Bromley since their promotion to this level in 2015. 

Woking finished the season in fourth place with 82 points, on Saturday The Cards won 1-0 away to Solihull Moors with Ricky Korboa scoring the only goal.

When the sides met in the regular season Woking won both games with a 2-0 win at Hayes Lane in November, Reece Grego-Cox and Rhys Browne on target that night, while in the return at Kingfield in February The Cards won 2-1 Scott Cuthbert and Jim Kellerman scoring the goals for the home side after Mitchell Bergkamp had put Bromley in front.

This is The Cards’ first season as a full time professional team and the move certainly seems to have paid off so far.  

In the final month of the season Darren Sarl’s side won three, drew one and lost two of their games in the run in, while Bromley went unbeaten in nine matches, winning five of them as they came into form at the crucial time to secure a place in the post season games.               

Since Woodman took over as Bromley manager at the end of March 2021, his team has reached the play offs twice and won the FA Trophy final, if The Ravens are to achieve their owner’s aim of making the Football League this season, then they are going to have to do it the hard way with two play off games away from home and then a Wembley final on 13th May, but given where the club has come from and the momentum it has built you wouldn’t rule it out. 

The match is a sell out for away fans, but those not lucky enough to have secured a ticket will be able to see it live on BT Sport, kick off is at 7:45pm.
