Vanarama National League

THE RAVENS

League Position: 8th (P25 W10 D7 L8)

Last Result: Eastleigh 1-2 Bromley (Saturday 6th March 2021)

Manager: Neil Smith

Club Captain: Jack Holland

Despite having quite a mixed bag of results this season, Bromley still finds themselves only one point away from 7th and very much in the mix for the playoffs come the end of the season. A lot of the praise for this has to rest with striker Michael Cheek, who is currently the division’s top goalscorer with 15 goals, which has helped the Ravens to not only climb the table but also to be the joint second-highest goalscorers in the league, which helps considering the high amount of goals they are shipping in. In fact, in there last ten games, they only have two clean sheets.

Just like when the sides came into this fixture back in November, Bromley has been struggling for consistency, which has been one of their biggest frailties all season, having only won four games since the turn of the year.

They will take a lot of confidence into Saturday’s game, however, after not only having a weeks rest but also because it comes on the back of a hard-fought away win over fellow play-off hopefuls, Eastleigh. The Ravens will know that three points on home turf on Saturday could set them well on their way to keeping themselves in the hunt for a top-seven finish. 

THE BEES

Following the departure of Tim Flowers, Club legend and former manager Paul Fairclough has stood in for 'two to three matches' whilst the Club assess their options to fill the vacant manager's position. Fairclough will be hoping that his side can head to Hayes Lane with a point to prove and the attitude to go and cause what many would perceive to be an upset. The trusted hands of Fairclough allow the Club to continue their search for a new permanent head coach, but the onus will surely be on the Bees squad to attempt to start turning the Clubs fortunes around, starting with this Saturday's tricky looking fixture with the Ravens. 

The Bees did have Wrexham pegged back for continuous periods of the second half on Tuesday night, but ultimately only fashioned three clear cut opportunities before their visitors wrapped up the three points with ten minutes to go. It'll be interesting to see whether a change of style may benefit the Bees, albeit there'll be limited time to change things with just one session under their belts since Tuesday's defeat. 

The only big positive to be taken from another tricky week is that ultimately the Bees have 19 fixtures left to play and should they be able to gather some momentum, they'll have every chance of moving themselves up The National League table. But there's only so many times that point can be made, ultimately it'll be performances on the pitch that play the biggest factor in trying to eradicate the poor form that has riddled the Bees for the majority of the season. 

CLASSIC ENCOUNTER:

The last time we headed to Hayes Lane, the Bees took all three points with a solid 2-1 victory over the Ravens.

Match Report: Bromley 2-2 Barnet FC

13 March 2021

In a dramatic game which saw two penalties, two players sent off and four goals, the Bees were able to come back twice to secure a hard fought 2-2 draw away to Bromley.

HOW IT HAPPENED
 
It was a bright start from the Bees and they managed to get the first chance of the game after three minutes when Michael Petrasso played in Ephron Mason-Clark, who dragged his shot just wide. 
 
This positive start though was dented after eight minutes, as Liam Trotter gave his side the lead after Scott Loach had initially parried away a chance from the league’s top goal scorer Michael Cheek.
 
However, this lead only lasted five minutes, with Bromley being reduced to ten men after Joe Kizzi was sent off for pulling back Courtney Baker-Richardson in the box, who managed to convert the resulting penalty to draw the game level.
 
The Bees were dealt a blow before the 20-minute mark when Loach was forced off after falling awkwardly on his shoulder, being replaced by Aymen Azaze.
 
Despite this, the Bees were still playing some really good football, moving the ball around well and looking to exploit their man advantage, including Mason-Clark, who had a shot hit the side-netting.
 
In what had already been an eventful opening 35 minutes, the Ravens manager, Neil Smith, was then sent off. 
 
The home side hadn’t really threatened much in the half and a lot of this was down to the Bees themselves who were compact in defence, not allowing too much to pressure their goal.
 
The second half started with Bromley having most of the ball, but still unable to fashion a meaningful chance.
 
But with 15 minutes played in the half, the hosts were allowed to retake their lead when Liam Daly handled the ball in the box and Cheek converted the penalty from the spot. 
 
Nevertheless, Bromley’s lead just like in the first half didn’t last long. In fact, it was from the restart that Mason-Clark was able to get a cross into the box to set up Petrasso, who was in bundles of space and able to smash home to bring the game level again.
 
It was from here that the Bees really started to mount the pressure as they sensed they may be able to get a winner.
 
With less than ten to go, however, the Bees too had a man sent off when captain James Dunne was given his marching orders.
 
This though didn’t stop the Bees momentum as they looked the most likely to get the three points, including Petrasso being inches away from finding that all-important goal, with his shot just going the wrong side of the post. 
 
The sides played out the remaining minutes of additional time, with neither side able to create a winner, meaning in the end the points were shared and the Bees gained an impressive point on the road.
 
Barnet Team: Loach (Azaze 17’), Dunne, McQueen, Petrasso, H.Taylor, Richards-Everton, Baker-Richardson, Binnom-Williams, Mason-Clark (Faal 76’), Vaughan, Daly (Kefalas 65’)
 
Subs not used: McBurnie and R.Taylor
