Seeking their fourth win on the bounce in the National League, Bromley welcome Weymouth to the H2T Group Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Andy Woodman's side claimed a 3-1 win over leaders Grimsby Town last week, while the visitors' poor fortunes continued with a 2-1 loss to Stockport County.

Match preview

Having picked up from where they left off at the end of the 2020-21 campaign, Bromley have another playoff appearance firmly in their sights and earned their third win on the trot with a 3-1 success at home to table-toppers Grimsby in midweek.

Despite going into the break 1-0 down after John McAtee's opener, Bromley came out all guns blazing in the second period as Michael Cheek, James Alabi and Corey Whitely struck while Grimsby finished the encounter with 10 men after Michee Efete's sending off.

This week's hosts have finally found their stride, but an underwhelming opening to the season - with five points taken from the first 12 on offer - means that they are playing catch-up for playoff places at this early stage as they sit 10th in the table but with two games in hand on most of the teams above them.

With 15 goals chalked up at the correct end of the pitch so far this season - at least two in six of their seven league games this term already - Bromley endure no such woes in the final third, but failure to shut up shop bedevilled them in the early weeks as they seek to pile more misery on their upcoming opponents.

In contrast, victories are proving extremely hard to come by for Weymouth this term, as their winless streak in the National League stretched to five matches following a 2-1 loss to Stockport County at the weekend.

Brian Stock's men went into half time in the ascendancy following Sean Shields's 38th-minute opener, but two goals in the final 20 minutes from Paddy Madden and Oliver Crankshaw meant that Weymouth's efforts were ultimately in vain in front of their own fans.

Stock remained upbeat after the game and was able to take the positives from that defeat, but having lost for the third time in four matches, Weymouth have slipped to 17th in the rankings and boast a torrid record of seven losses from their last eight league games away from home.

Bromley came out on top by three goals to two in this fixture last season, but Weymouth gleaned revenge with a 2-1 home win in February, and the visitors must take inspiration from that success if they are to have any hope of a surprise result here.

Team News

Bromley have no fresh injury concerns to report from last week's game, and having had a weekend with no fixture, Woodman has no reason to alter a winning formula.

Alabi will certainly push for a start over George Alexander up top after netting off the bench against the league leaders, but the hosting manager should otherwise stick with the same side from that impressive success.

Weymouth are unlikely to have winger Ahkeem Rose back from a hamstring injury just yet, but Xander McBurnie, Tom Bearwish and Ben Thomson are all back in the fold and ready to be called upon.

The latter two came off the bench at the weekend and will push for starts here, while McBurnie could provide an option for change in the middle of the park.

Bromley possible starting lineup:
Cousins; Webster, Bush, Sowunmi; Whitely, Arthurs, Coulson, Bingham, Sablier; Alabi, Cheek

Weymouth possible starting lineup:
Fitzsimons; Brooks, Cordner, Leslie-Smith, Olomowewe; Mussa, Murray, Robinson, Harfield; McQuoid, Thomson

We say: Bromley 2-0 Weymouth

With the hosts only looking up the table and refreshed following a full week in between matches, the fatigued and under-performing visitors are up against it to take something home from this clash, and we can only back an in-form Bromley to see off Weymouth in style.
