Bromley trip holds no fears
BASINGSTOKE Town will be hoping to end Bromley’s 100 per cent home record when they travel to Kent in the Conference South on Saturday.
Both sides have had a great start to the season and Bromley came from 2-1 down at Concord Rangers on Tuesday night to win 3-2 which keeps them in second place in the table just behind leaders Eastleigh.
Last Saturday, the Kent side were 3-0 winners over Staines which took their tally to 14 goals in their first four home game while only conceding two.
Basingstoke boss Jason Bristow is full aware of what Saturday’s opponents have done so far this season.
Bristow said: “Bromley are a very good attacking side who have been free scoring at home, so we know this is going a big test for us, but we have already played some tough teams and come away with the points.”
Town have enjoyed a great start to their season themselves with four wins from their first seven games.
Bristow said: “They will look at our results and know we are not going to make it easy for them so it should make it a very entertaining game.”
For the trip Town will once again be without striker Jordace Spooner-Holder who is out with a long term injury.
They also are hoping to have midfielder Simon Dunn back he will face a late fitness test ahead of the game on a knee injury.
Otherwise Bristow has a full squad to pick from and said: “All players did well against Ebbsfleet and those who did not play were unlucky.
“There is a good feeling in the squad and we are ready to take on anyone. We were unlucky against Ebbsfleet last weekend as they scored a late equaliser.”
