Competition: National League
Market: Bromley win
Odds: 3/5 @ Pribet
Meeting for the second time this week, Bromley will welcome Ebbsfleet to Hayes Lane on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, snatching a last-gasp 3-2 victory when they travelled to Ebbsfleet on Boxing Day, Bromley are enjoying a stellar National League romp. Although the Ravens might have suffered play-off heartbreak last season, Andy Woodman’s side are sat firmly in the driving seat to wrap up another top-seven finish in the New Year. Battling it out at the top of the fifth-tier standings and with the mood in their camp at a red-hot high, the London-based outfit will be confident of making another statement here. Collecting 52 points from their 26 National League appearances this year, Bromley have also lost just one of their last 12 straight outings. With that stellar flurry stemming all the way back to a 2-0 loss against leading promotion contenders Chesterfield way back on October 3rd, Saturday’s hosts will be confident of opening up the New Year with a statement at Hayes Lane. Extending on their FA Trophy adventure on December 9th as they clinched a 1-0 victory against Slough, the Ravens are rightfully tipped as a standout pick this weekend.
As for the visitors, while Ebbsfleet might have secured a National League return this season, Dennis Kutrieb’s side have continued on a real fifth-tier struggle. Suffering late heartbreak at home against Bromley on Boxing Day as they suffered a 3-2 defeat, the Kent-based outfit find themselves tipped as a leading relegation contender in 2024. Currently sat one-point adrift in the drop zone, Saturday’s guests have recorded just a single win from any of their previous 16 straight appearances across all competitions. With that extended struggle stemming all the way back to September 30th, Ebbsfleet should be bracing themselves for another stern National League struggle here. Crashing out of the FA Trophy at the hands of lower-league Bishop’s Stortford earlier in the month, Kutrieb will also have a mounting headache over his side’s continued issues on the road. In fact, the fifth-tier relegation scrappers have recorded just a sole away victory since the opening weekend. Suffering that 3-2 loss when they met Bromley on Boxing Day, we are expecting a similar outcome.
