After back to back wins for only the second time this season. We are back on the road again to face mid table side Bromley. A win would see us increase our chances of escaping the bottom four.
The game against Woking was exceptional. The Villagers were ahead early through another Jake Skelton goal. A glancing header which gave him his second goal in the last two games. Something i didn’t think i would be saying!.. A controversial equaliser which you all may of heard about in our match report, gave the visitors an equaliser. Fair to say it shouldn’t of stood after what appeared to be an elbow on a Ferriby player in the build up. The game should of been stopped and unfortunately it wasn’t.
Ferriby were back on top in the second half and were rewarded by a winner from non other than our top scorer Reece Thompson. Playing a one-two with man of the match Robbie Tinkler before curling his shot beautifully into the bottom right hand corner. Another vital 3 points which see’s us move up to 22nd in the National League and 4 points from safety.
TEAM NEWS: Simon Russell, Ryan Fallowfield, Connor Oliver and Steve Brogan all remain sidelined. The rest of the squad are fit.
This Weekends Opposition
Bromley currently lie 12th in the National League and have currently not won a game in there last 6. There last win came against Torquay in early February. With Ferriby’s exceptional away form of late, it is a big opportunity to take 3 points at Haye Lane. There main attacking threat will come from striker Blair Turgott, who netted the winner in the previous game at the Eon Visual Media Stadium.
Bromley have strengthened there team in the last couple of days. They have brought in midfielder ex Chelsea trainee Shabazz Omofi from Bristol City and Nathan Ferguson who was previously at Southport in a loan spell from Port Vale. Be sure to watch out for them as they make there league debuts this weekend.
Our previous meeting against The Ravens saw us lose 2-1 in a game which we should of got at least a point from. We was very good in this game up until we went 1-0 up. We went ahead in the game via Reece Thompson in the 52nd minute, only for Bromley to equalise five minutes later. it was then a bitter blow when there main man Turgott scored the winner a minute from time. Once the first Bromley goal went in it was extremely difficult to watch, they kept coming and coming and it was a question of when they were going to score not if. Hopefully we can have less of the tension this time around and make it three in the bounce.
Player Focus: Reece Thompson
He has been incredible in the last few games. Scoring a cracker against Guiseley and then scoring the winner against Woking last weekend. Reece will very difficult to stop if he is given too much room in the final third. Fingers crossed for more goals in this game and the games to come.
