Saturday’s fixture against Wrexham will be the eleventh time the teams have clashed since our promotion to the National League in 2015.
Our visitors on Saturday hold a small piece in the history of Bromley, as they were the very first opponents in the top flight of non-league football, when they visited Hayes Lane on 8th August 2015. On that occasion, Bromley came from behind to record a 3-1 victory.
Up until last season, Wrexham had not won a game at Hayes Lane in four visits, but last season they completed the League double over us: winning at Hayes Lane by two goals to nil and by a single goal at the Racecourse Ground in the return fixture.
By the same token, Bromley have never been winners in North Wales, the best result coming the season before last when a 2-2 draw was fought out.
Wrexham’s 4-0 thrashing of Sutton United on Tuesday evening saw them rise to 6th position in the League table, with 16 points from the 9 games completed so far.
The return fixture in North Wales is scheduled for Saturday 27 March 2021, subject to neither side appearing in the Semi Final of the FA Trophy.
