Match Preview: Pools set for Bromley clash

25 November 2023

After an unbeaten week on the road, Hartlepool United return to home soil as they host Bromley at the Suit Direct Stadium on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

The Lowdown

Pools come into the fixture off the back of a win over York City last week and a midweek draw with Kidderminster. John Askey's side dominated much of each fixture, and they'll have plenty of momentum for this weekend's fixture. The results have seen Askey's men climb to 12th place, five points from the play-offs.

Bromley have started the season well, and they currently occupy third place in the National League. Managed by Andy Woodman, the Bromley side features a former Poolie in attack. Fela Olomola spent a season in blue and white, and he competes with serial goalscorer Michael Cheek up front for the Ravens.

The History

There have been just eight meetings between the sides previously, with Pools winning just twice. Bromley have won five times, while one match has ended in a draw. The teams last met in a play-off eliminator. A first-half brace for Rhys Oates and an early strike from Luke Armstrong gave Pools a 3-2 win.

Team News

Charlie Seaman and Matty Dolan will be monitored ahead of the fixture after struggling with recent knocks.

Pools' injury list still features Anthony Mancini, Dan Dodds, Luke Hendrie and Alex Lacey, though Mancini has resumed light training.
