Bromley were only an extra time period away from reaching last season’s National League playoff final, losing out to Chesterfield 3-2 in the semis.

This is The Ravens’ ninth consecutive season at the level, having earned promotion in 2015.

Andy Woodman’s side began the season with two defeats, at Halifax Town and at home to Barnet, before draws against Wealdstone and Kidderminster Harriers saw them pick up their first points of the season.

However, they played with ten men for most of the goalless draw against Kidderminster, following a red card for Cole Kpekawa, who will miss the game at the Crown Oil Arena.


The two Clubs have met just once. That came in the first round of the 2017/18 FA Cup, when Dale ran out 4-0 winners, thanks to braces from Ian Henderson and Bradden Inman.


Aaron Jackson will be the referee for Friday’s game. It is his fifth season at National League level.

Joseph Pettitt and Emily Carney are assistant referees, with Declan Brown as fourth official.


Supporters in the UK & Ireland, as well as those overseas can watch the game live via the National League TV platform.

Audio commentary will also be available via Dale Player. Click HERE for full details.

There will also be live updates via the club’s official twitter account.
