THE CONTEXT Bromley appointed Arsenal goalkeeping coach Andy Woodman as First Team Manager this week following the surprise sacking of stalwart Neil Smith whilst the club occupied the play-off positions. His first game will be the Good Friday fixture against the Stones after Alan Dunne and Roger Johnson took caretaker charge of the side in last week's 3-0 defeat to Wrexham, that saw them slip to tenth in the table. The Stones will also be licking their wounds from a 3-0 away defeat after they were beaten by Solihull Moors in midweek.
TEAM NEWS Wealdstone's injury woes at the back suffered further on Tuesday evening with debutant Nikola Tavares hobbling off with a quad injury, Michael Phillips also came off injured in the same game. Daniel Bowry is expected to return to Cheltenham this week after his loan spell ended and fellow defensive loanees George Langston and Joseph Olowu continue to be on the sidelines. Riley-Jay Harbottle got through the Solihull game unscathed after a knock in the Woking game the week previous.

WHO TO WATCH FOR Jack Bridge: Bridge is new to the Ravens squad this season after joining from National League South side Concord Rangers in January.

He's played in the EFL for Southend United, Northampton Town and Carlisle United before his move to Concord at the start of this season.
