PREVIEW | Wrexham vs Bromley

Back to the serious stuff

9 January 2023

After an unforgettable weekend, it's time to get back to our priority: the National League.

The remarkable 4-3 win at Coventry captured the headlines, but the coaching staff had just two days to bring the focus back onto a tough league encounter and deal with the knocks picked up at The CBS Arena.

Aaron Hayden missed out in Coventry, of course, but Anthony Forde, James Jones and Ollie Palmer all made cameo appearances off the bench and will be eager to reclaim their places in the side.

Bromley arrive in 10th place, and their most recent match was a goalless draw against Southend United, having won the first of the festive fixtures against them at Roots Hall. That took their unbeaten run to 5 league games but they have only won 2 of their last 12 games in all competitions.

That run of results included a defeat to Bath City on penalties which ended their defence of the FA Trophy at the first hurdle (not that we're in a position to crow over the Ravens' Trophy record!)

With 6 goals this season, Omar Sowunmi is almost in the Aaron Hayden category of goal-scoring centre backs, even outscoring the prolific Michael Cheek who has struck 5 times in the current campaign. Bromley's experienced attack also features Adam Marriott, who is their top scorer with 8.



Wrexham have a strong home record against Bromley, having won 6 of 7 clashes at The Racecourse.

Last season we beat them 2-0 through goals by Reece Hall-Johnson and Paul Mullin, a victory which was made more straightforward by Liam Trotter's 8th minute red card for a heavy tackle on Dan Jarvis.

The preceding season we enjoyed our biggest win over Bromley, as Dior Angus put in his finest performance in a Wrexham shirt. Jordan Davies opened the scoring, but two sharp finishes by Angus were what put The Red Dragons into the comfort zone, securing a 3-0 win.

In November 2019 a typical Luke Young strike, 13 minutes from the final whistle, was what separated the two sides.

A year earlier, we dropped points at home to Bromley for the only time so far. It was a highly frustrating affair, as Wrexham looked to be cruising to victory after 65 minutes after goals by Mike Fondop and Rekeil Pyke. However, a penalty halved the lead and, in the first minute of added time, a near post corner skidded off the top of Luke Summerfield's head and into the net, an own goal which secured The Ravens a point.


In September 2017, Ntumba Massanka swept in to score both goals in a 2-0 win, the first of 4 he scored in this fixture to make him our top scorer against Bromley.

We'd also grabbed 2 goals against Bromley the previous season, through Shaun Harrad and Gerry McDonagh, the on-loan Irishman's 80th minute strike earning Dean Keates his first win as Wrexham manager.

Bromley's first game at The Racecourse, in February 2016, was dominated by Lee Fowler. Back in the side having not been selected for much of the campaign by Gary Mills, he ran the show, opening the scoring after 32 minutes. Connor Jennings secured a 2-0 win with a penalty 6 minutes later.

Match Reports

REPORT | Wrexham 2-1 Bromley

Wrexham extend their perfect home record

10 January 2023

James Jones swept Wrexham into a comeback victory at the Racecourse Ground after a gritty affair against Bromley.

After going behind to a reactive Corey Whitely effort, Paul Mullin would level the scores right before half-time, as Jordan Tunnicliffe was kicked in the face inside the Bromley box. 

After a stagnant second half, substitute Jones would smash the ball into the back of the net to push Wrexham into the league.  

Phil Parkinson made three changes to the giant killing side after the 4-3 victory over Championship Coventry City in the FA Cup. Anthony Forde, Aaron Hayden and Ollie Palmer all returned to the usual starting eleven for Reece Hall-Johnson, Max Cleworth and Sam Dalby. 

A late challenge in the fourth minute saw Kellen Fisher take out Callum McFadzean with both feet, after the Wrexham wing-back had been first to the ball. The Bromley number 35 would however only walk away with a yellow card.  

Louis Dennis was presented with the first opportunity of the game, as he found room from Tom O’Connor on the edge of the Wrexham box in the tenth minute. A whipped right footed effort going across the goal forced Mark Howard into a sprawling save. 

A lazy pass back from Ben Tozer in the 20th minute saw Michael Cheek beat O’Connor to the ball on the edge of the Wrexham box. The striker then struck early, but Tozer amended for his mistake and blocked the effort. 

Tozer would then turn to his throwing attributes, with the ball eventually landing at the feet of Palmer. The striker slapped a first time shot for the ball to sail over into the Kop in the 22nd minute. 

Dennis was able to turn Hayden inside and out in the Wrexham box, but the Wrexham number five matched the movements well. A cross was still fired into the six-yard box, where the ball ricocheted off the on-running Jude Arthurs and onto the boot of Corey Whitely for the ball to bobble into Howard’s corner with 33 minutes on the clock.  

Elliot Lee found his first real bit of room in the 36th minute, but uncharacteristically sprayed the ball over the bar instead of finding a red shirt in the box.  

The usual combination of a Tozer long throw and Hayden header returned in the 42nd minute, but Reice Charles-Cook flew to tip the ball over from his left top corner. 

The resulting corner saw Tunnicliffe kicked in the cheek by Cheek whilst on his knees. Referee Lewis Smith took his time with the decision but ultimately awarded Wrexham the penalty. Paul Mullin made no mistake and slammed the ball into the roof of the Bromley net to level the scores. 

Half time was called and Wrexham would be somewhat lucky to be level, being far off their best. 

The second half saw 25 minutes of both sides failing to threaten and create any chances. 

Parkinson therefore decided to switch up the formation and take centre back Tunnicliffe off for Sam Dalby. Wrexham would now operate with four at the back and three strikers. 

Parkinson’s change worked to a tee, but with the other substitution of James Jones. After an abundance of well defended crosses, the ball rolled out to Jones who slammed the ball hard and low with his first touch. A nick off Omar Sowunmi would only direct the ball further into the goal, as Wrexham took the lead in the 73rd minute.  

Aside from a couple of half chances, Bromley did little to threaten Wrexham’s lead towards the end. 

There were two chances for Wrexham to extend their league in the dying embers. Dalby ran through on goal and opted to shoot instead of sliding the ball across to Palmer, forcing Charles-Cook into a smart save. 

A couple of minutes later would see Palmer get his chance, but Charles-Cook came to the Ravens’ rescue, as he smothered the low effort. 

Wrexham claimed all three points at the referee’s final whistle. A vital three points in the race for the title. 

Wrexham Starting XI: 5-3-2: Howard (GK), Forde, Hayden, Tozer, Tunnicliffe (Dalby 71’), McFadzean, O’Connor (J.Jones 71’), Young (C), Lee, Mullin (McAlinden 90’), Palmer
