Bromley's play-off hopes took a big hit in midweek after they lost 2-1 away to mid-table Yeovil Town, dropping them to tenth and five points outside the play-off places. The Ravens have had another memorable run in the FA Trophy though, where they face National League North side York City in the semi-finals. Wealdstone ran the runaway league leaders Stockport County close on the weekend, taking a 2-0 lead at Edgeley Park only to be blitzed away by a second half comeback by the hosts to result in a 4-2 defeat. Weymouth's defeat to Woking in midweek has concreted the Stones' survival chances in the National League.
Stones boss Stuart Maynard will be without midfielder Ashley Charles who is away on international duty representing Grenada. Defenders Nikola Tavares, Connor McAvoy and Andrew Eleftheriou all missed the last game with injury whilst David Sesay was also substituted in that match with what looked like cramp.
WHAT WAS SAID?
Stuart Maynard: "It feels like as a management team we have that connection now as a football club. We're all pulling together in the same direction and it's a powerful tool and I think it's why we have picked the points up that we have because we're all in it together. We know at times there will be disappointments with results but there's not been many this year and our fans have been just unbelievable."
Stockport County (A) 4-2 L (Cook, Henry)
Weymouth (H) 3-2 W (Browne 2, Cook)
Maidenhead United (A) 0-2 W - (Cook, Browne)
Eastleigh (A) 4-1 L (Clayden)
Torquay United (H) 1-1 D - (Mundle-Smith)
Yeovil Town (A) 2-1 L (Alexander) Wrexham (H) 0-0 D FC Halifax Town (A) 1-0 L Solihull Moors (H) 3-1 W (Cheek 2, Alabi) Torquay United (A) 0-0 D
WHO TO WATCH FOR?
George Alexander: The 21-year old midfielder came through the ranks at Millwall before joining Bromley in the summer and has adjusted to life in the National League with ease. The youngster has made 28 appearances so far this season, scoring six times including in the dramatic 3-2 win over Wealdstone back in December. Will be a nuisance in the midfield for the Stones to contend with and if he keeps his form up, will be looking forward to a future beyond non-league football.
