Sports Mole previews Sunday's FA Trophy final between Bromley and Wrexham, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Wrexham will attempt to achieve their first of two end-of-season targets when they face Bromley in the FA Trophy final on Sunday afternoon.

At a time when the Dragons will have one eye on the National League playoffs, Bromley can fully focus on prevailing at Wembley Stadium after a 10th-placed finish in the top tier of non-league.

Match preview

Heading into the final day of the National League, Wrexham would have been hoping that they could seal promotion to the EFL ahead of going for the double this weekend.

However, a 3-0 defeat at Dagenham & Redbridge ensured that Stockport County would be crowned champions, leaving Wrexham to try to come through the playoffs.

Phil Parkinson and his players were undoubtedly left feeling disappointed after that anti-climax, but they are three wins away from enjoying one of their best seasons in recent memory.

Overall, their form can still be classed as positive, a total of 20 points coming from their final 10 fixtures, and beating Stockport in the semi-final of this competition preceded that run of results.

The Dragons have negotiated a tough route to the final with victories over Boreham Wood and Notts County being recorded before the 2-0 success over their title rivals.

Bromley could have also been provided with some easier draws, with four of their five games being against National League sides or North playoff finalists York City.

The latter were defeated at the semi-final stage, backing up an impressive 3-1 triumph over Solihull Moors after conceding an early goal.

In terms of league contests, Andy Woodman would have been disappointed with a return of just 13 points from their closing 10 games, the Ravens eventually finishing seven points short of the playoffs.

Bromley also failed to score in each of their two National League meetings with Wrexham this campaign, although positives will be taken from the goalless draw on March 19.

Team News

While Woodman was pleased with how his attacking players performed against Barnet last weekend, the two goals conceded at the other end may lead to changes.

Luke Coulson will hope to return on the right flank, but Omar Sowunmi should retain his spot in the back three.

As far as Wrexham are concerned, Parkinson must decide whether to react to the defeat at Dagenham and also take their upcoming playoff semi-final into consideration.

Parkinson has suggested that a number of players are carrying minor injuries, with Bryce Hosannah likely to feature on that list having missed the last game.

Ollie Palmer and Paul Mullin should retain their spots in attack, leaving the likes of Liam McAlinden and Jordan Ponticelli to settle for a place on the substitutes' bench.

Bromley possible starting lineup:
Balcombe; Webster, Bush, Sowumni; Coulson, Bingham, Vennings, Whitely; Al-Hamadi, Cheek, Bloomfield

Wrexham possible starting lineup:
Dibble; French, Cleworth, Tozer; Hall-Johnson, Davies, Young, Jones, McFadzean; Mullin, Palmer

We say: Bromley 1-3 Wrexham

With both clubs having ended the season indifferently, it could create more of a level playing field. Nevertheless, even if Wrexham could potentially be distracted by more important targets, we are backing the Welsh side to run out clear winners at Wembley. body check tags ::
