Preview: Bromley (A)

Magpies prepare for first-ever clash with Londoners

20 September 2019

Notts County travel to south-east London this weekend looking to inflict Bromley's first defeat of the season.

It's been a superb campaign so far for the Hayes Lane outfit, who have been battling it out with Woking for top spot in recent weeks.

They come into the match in second place, one point off the leaders, having won two and drawn three of their last five fixtures.

Notts, meanwhile, will start the day in 13th and must recover from the disappointment of losing Sam Graham to a serious Achilles injury in training earlier this week.

It'll be the Magpies' final league test of the season on an artificial surface and they'll be hoping to build on the four points picked up against Harrogate and Sutton on their plastic pitches.

Ardley says…

“Bromley are unbeaten for a reason – they’re doing a lot of things right.

"They’ve got some good players and are powerful with good strength and height.

“They play at a good tempo and cause you problems. They’re second-top scorers and we’re going to have to play really, really well."

Team news

Ben Turner's involvement will have now been decided by Ardley, who ran the rule over the centre back in training on Friday.

Nathan Tyson, Dion Kelly-Evans and Sean Shields, meanwhile, are unlikely to make the trip despite progressing well in their respective recoveries.

Michael Doyle will miss the match through suspension so it remains to be seen who takes the captain's armband and replaces him in central midfield.

Bromley, meanwhile, have welcomed a new signing to the club this week.

Forest Green Rovers' six-foot striker Shawn McCoulsky has joined them on an initial month's loan.

Head to head

Both teams will be looking to make history by recording victory in the first ever meeting between the sides.

Match Reports

Bromley 2-1 Notts

Defeat on the road despite another for Wootton

21 September 2019

Notts County were beaten 2-1 by undefeated Bromley in south-east London.

Kyle Wootton had cancelled out Alfie Doughty's early opener with a peach of a finish before the break.

But Shawn McCoulsky won the day for the hosts with a superb strike from the edge of the area.

Extra salt was rubbed into Notts' wounds late on when Jim O'Brien was forced off with what looked like a bad arm injury.

Neal Ardley made four changes to the side that beat FC Halifax Town seven days ago - three of them enforced. 

Injuries to Ben Turner and Sam Graham, who will miss the rest of the season, saw Connell Rawlinson and Zoumana Bakayogo come into the defence alongside former Bromley man Richard Brindley and Damien McCrory, who moved to centre back.

Regan Booty replaced the suspended Michael Doyle in a midfield four featuring O'Brien, Enzio Boldewijn and skipper Mitch Rose.

Kristian Dennis partnered Wootton up front with Wes Thomas taking a place on the bench, where he was joined by youngsters Sam Osborne, Pierce Bird and Declan Dunn, and player/goalkeeper coach Jake Kean.

It was the nightmare start for the Magpies as, within two minutes of kick-off, the hosts had the lead.

It came after Luke Coulson burst down the left wing and crossed the ball low into the box. It evaded Reeco Hackett-Fairchild in the middle but Doughty arrived in time at the back post to blast it high beyond Sam Slocombe.

And it should have been 2-0 to the hosts shortly afterwards when Bromley whipped the ball to the back stick from a short corner only for Joe Kizzi to head over unchallenged six yards out.

Notts' hearts were in their mouths once again moments later when Rawlinson was dispossessed in dangerous territory. The ball found its way to Hackett-Fairchild, who feigned a shot in the area to work the ball on to his left foot. He sent it low towards goal but Rawlinson was on hand to atone for his earlier error by blocking on the line.

The Magpies then began to grow into the game and had their first meaningful shot midway through the half when Notts played a corner along the ground for Dennis, whose first-time effort from a difficult angle flew off-target.

Another corner caused chaos shortly afterwards when O'Brien nearly found the far corner of the net, only for Bromley keeper Mark Cousins to make a last-ditch recovery.

And the Magpies' increasing pressure eventually told when Booty picked out Wootton with an incisive pass, allowing the forward to turn in space and curl the ball beautifully beyond Cousins to restore parity.

There were no changes for either side at half-time and the second period began in scrappy style with neither side able to gain control.

It wasn't until the 62nd minute that the next chance arose - and it was Dennis who came within inches of putting Notts ahead after Boldewijn supplied him just outside the area. The striker sent a first-time left-footed effort towards the top corner but Cousins did brilliantly to push the ball over the bar.

That was to be Dennis' final action of note as he made way for Thomas with 69 minutes on the clock.

But it was another substitute, Bromley's debutant loanee McCoulsky, who would next have the ball in the net.

It bounced out to him on the edge of the area after Notts had half-cleared a cross into the box and he demonstrated excellent technique to fire it into the corner of the net with 17 minutes remaining.

Bird replaced Bakayogo with 10 to play in a move which saw McCrory move to left back.

And another change was forced upon Ardley at the end of the 90 minutes when O'Brien had to leave the field breathing gas and air following a physicial challange. Osborne replaced him.

The match was already well into the previously-announced four minutes of added time and Notts were unable to find an equaliser in the dying moments.
