Match Preview: Bromley vs Weymouth

Latest News

Bromley will be aiming for four wins in a row tonight as they welcome Weymouth to Hayes Lane tonight.

Last time out:

The Ravens enjoyed another victory on Tuesday night, beating Grimsby Town 3-1 on home turf.

Andy Woodman’s men did fall behind though after a John McAtee free-kick beat Mark Cousins just before half-time.

However, goals from Michael Cheek, James Alabi and Corey Whitely sealed all three points for the Ravens.

A look at the opposition:

Weymouth currently find themselves 17th in the National League and without a win in five matches. 

Their last victory came away from home in early September as they beat Solihull Moors 4-3 in a thrilling game at Damson Park.

Bradley Ash and Josh McQuoid both scored in their last win and they are The Terras’ top-scorers this season with three goals each. 

The visitors, who finished 18th in the National League last season, could move up to 13th today if they pick up a win at Hayes Lane, going above Torquay, who also visit Bromley this Saturday.

Who’s in charge? 

Brian Stock joined Weymouth from the AFC Bournemouth backroom staff just over a year ago. The Terras boss joined the club having previously run his own private youth academy whilst earning his UEFA B coaching badge too.

Stock began his career at AFC Bournemouth, the club where he was later appointed as an Academy Coach. During his time with the Cherries, the Weymouth boss made 172 appearances between 2000 and 2006 before moving on to Preston North End and Doncaster Rovers respectively.

Whilst at the latter, Stock went on to be a part of their 2008 Play-off winning team who clinched promotion to the Championship after beating Leeds United. The former midfielder made over 200 appearances for Donny and during his time there, won three caps for Wales.

Stock then moved to Burnley in 2012 before hanging up his boots in 2019 whilst at Havant & Waterlooville.

Recent meetings:

In The Ravens’ previous game against Weymouth, it was a feisty matchup, with three red cards and The Terras’ running out 2-1 winners at the Bob Lucas Stadium back in February this year.

Two early goals from Weymouth’s Andrew Dallas gave Bromley a mountain to climb after just seven minutes of the game. Joe Kizzi pulled one back for The Raven’s before the half giving his side some hope.

However, after the halftime break, Chris Bush received two yellows in the space of three minutes, with Charlie Wakefield seeing red with just 10 minutes left, making the challenge even more difficult for Bromley.

Weymouth’s Jordan Ngalo saw his second yellow in added time at the end of the game, but that didn’t stop Weymouth from getting the three points from this matchup.

In our last match-up at Hayes Lane, the Ravens came out on top with Michael Cheek netting from the spot before Nassim L’Ghoul and Ben Williamson sealing a 3-2 win.
