Sports Mole previews Saturday's National League clash between Dorking Wanderers and Bromley, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.
Sports Mole

Dorking Wanderers will look to continue their inaugural season in the National League with a victory over stalwarts Bromley on Saturday afternoon.

With their eyes on the playoffs, Bromley will be confident of three points on Saturday, but face an exciting Dorking side searching for yet another scalp.


Match preview

Much like their style of play, it has been a topsy turvy season for Dorking so far, with the Surrey-based outfit entering the weekend sitting in 15th place.

Six points ahead of the drop zone, Dorking have positioned themselves strongly heading into the winter and will be confident of avoiding relegation back to the National League South.

Remarkably, only four sides in the league have scored more goals than 15th-placed Dorking, but a shaky backline has cost the Chicks so far.

Having shipped an eye-watering 42 goals up until now, Dorking hold the unfortunate tag of the division's worst defence.

While ahead of Dorking in the table, Bromley's recent form has been shaky of late and they enter Saturday's clash on an eight-game winless streak.

Drawing to strugglers FC Halifax Town last time out represented the latest low in Bromley's poor run of form, with the Ravens last triumphing in early October.

On top of this, Bromley are without a clean sheet during that time, having shifted 13 goals in their last eight matches across all competitions.

Saturday's clash will mark the first ever league fixture between Bromley and Dorking, who have only ever played on competitive fixture against each other.

Their only meeting so far came in December 2019, when Dorking, then of the National League South, blitzed Bromley during a 3-0 victory.

A repeat of that result on Saturday would mark yet another memorable moment in Dorking's historic season.

Team News

A scorer of 12 goals so far this season, James McShane will be heading the Dorking attack, with his eyes set on another goals haul.

Slavomir Huk will be the man tasked with keeping the Bromley attack quiet, as Dorking look to amend their poor defensive record.

Whereas Huk's counterpart in the opposite goal, Tom Smith, will also be keen to keep a shutout considering Bromley's troubles at the back.

Michael Cheek has netted 10 plus goals in each of his last three National League seasons, but the 31-year-old only has four goals to his name so far, with Saturday's clash an opportunity to up his tally.

Dorking Wanderers possible starting lineup:
Huk; Fuller, Cook, Gallagher, Jebb; Moore, Procter, McManus, Taylor; Muitt, Seager

Bromley possible starting lineup:
Smith; Reynolds, Hannam, Sowunmi, Webster; Bingham, Vennings, Forster, Alexander; Cheek, Whitley


We say: Dorking Wanderers 2-0 Bromley

Dorking have been an intriguing addition to the National League this season, with their games often entertaining.

Expect more fireworks on Saturday against Bromley, with Dorking pushing for a victory.
