Match Previews

Match Preview: Bromley (A)

25 January 2020

The Bees make the short journey across London to Bromley FC on Saturday, as they look to make up ground in the pursuit of the playoffs.

Fixture: Bromley v Barnet

Competition: The Vanarama National League

Kick-Off: 3:00 pm

Date: 25th January 2020

Venue: Hayes Lane

The Bees

Manager: Darren Currie

Form: WDDDD

Top Scorer: Simeon Akinola (13 goals)

The Bees will look to continue their unbeaten run going having now played eight games without a loss since a 2-1 away defeat to Barrow back in November.

Having had to postpone some recent fixtures, the Bees last game in the league ended 1-1 against FC Halifax Town and Darren Currie’s side will hope to be able to turn 1 point into 3 on Saturday.

Bromley FC

Nickname: The Ravens

Manager: Neil Smith

Stadium: Hayes Lane

Top Scorer: Michael Cheek (12 goals)

Form: LWWLL

The Ravens have so far had a very promising season in the National League as they currently occupy 4th position and more importantly, a place in the playoffs.

However, Bromley will be disappointed with their recent form having dropped points in some key fixtures, most recently losing 2-0 away to top of the league Barrow. Goals from Dior Angus and John Rooney were enough to secure all three points for the Bluebirds on the day.

This afternoon's hosts are the 3rd joint-top goalscorers in the league alongside Torquay United having scored 52 goals so far, though have conceded 41.

The Gaffer: Neil Smith

Neil Smith started his footballing career with Tottenham Hotspur as part of their academy as a player before playing for clubs such as Gillingham, Fulham and Reading.

His managerial journey began with Woking on an interim basis with his first permanent position coming with Welling United. Smith has been with Bromley since 2011 in an assistant manager capacity before being handed the managers role in 2016.

One to Watch: Michael Cheek

Michael Cheek spent a lot of his youth career further down the leagues with Heybridge Swifts and Chelmsford City before playing for sides such as Braintree Town, Dagenham & Redbridge and last season, Ebbsfleet United.

This season, he signed for Bromley FC and has repaid the faith shown in him by the Ravens by scoring 12 league goals so far this season and he'll certainly be one to watch for the Bees.

Match Reports

Match Pack: Bromley 1-2 Barnet

25 January 2020

The Bees impressive run of form continues at Hayes Lane!

How It Happened

The Bees had to weather an early storm within the first 10 minutes of kick-off and had Scott Loach to thank for not conceding in the opening stages.

Luke Coulson smashed across goal forcing our number one to turn his powerful effort around the post before he did fantastically well to stand up and parry a vicious Josh Rees volley.

The Bees found their feet after the early onslaught and began to create chances to take the lead. Cheye Alexander was instrumental down the right-hand side and almost put his side ahead with 20 minutes on the clock. The full-back cut inside and hit an effort towards the near post but Ryan Huddart was equal to his attempt as he made a diving save to his left.

With 26 minutes on the clock, Darren Currie's side made their pressure count. Walker took hold some 30 yards from goal before he beat one to make his way into the box. With just Huddart to beat, he stayed cool, waited for the 'keeper to drop and poked home to put the Bees ahead.

The hosts were immediately looking for a response and unfortunately for the Bees, they found it within just minutes of the half-time whistle. After a wave of constant pressure, the ball fell for Rees inside the Bees box and he made no mistake to fire beyond Loach and into the far corner levelling proceedings, a scoreline that was taken into the break.

Bromley passed up a golden opportunity to take the lead in the first two minutes of the second half as Joe Kizzi fired agonisingly wide from close range following a scramble inside the Barnet box.

And they were made to pay as Simeon Akinola scored his 14th goal of the season to put the Bees back in front. After latching onto a Dan Sweeney cross, he got away from his man and prodded into the top corner to keep his impressive run of form going.

Rees came closest to levelling the scoreline for the hosts, but his side-footed effort from the edge of the box rolled just wide of the far post.

Loach was on hand on two occasions to deny Williamson as the game headed into the final 15 minutes, but the home side failed to find that cutting edge as the Bees secured all three points at Hayes Lane!

Loach, Alexander, Johnson, Reynolds, Dunne (C), Adams, Akinola (Sparkes, 90+1), Fonguck (Vilhete, 72), Walker (Elito, 86), Tutonda, Sweeney
