Bromley vs Sutton United Live Stream National League Match Preview & Betting Prediction 2017

Two sides who are obviously feeling punchy about their chances in the National League right now come face to face on Bank Holiday Monday when Bromley play host to Sutton United. It’s not the first time the sides have come together this week though, as they have recently published a statement alongside Maidstone United pressuring the EFL to allow the use of 3G pitches in the Football League.

The fact that they are looking at this suggests they clearly have ambitions of promotion come the end of the campaign and with both sides starting the season in impressive fashion, it shows that they fully intend to give the EFL a decision to make come the end of the season.

Unfortunately for the sides there is only two promotion spots available and we think it will be the hosts that boost their chances on Monday. Given the strength of the sides though we are adding a bit of a safety net by adding the ‘Draw – No Bet’ option, which is still available at 4/5. For our correct score tip we can see both teams getting on the score sheet but we think Bromley will eventually claim a 2-1 victory, which can be found at around 17/2 with most bookmakers.

Bromley will be looking to bounce back immediately from a 5-1 defeat to league leaders Dagenham & Redbridge and having already claimed the scalps of recently relegated Leyton Orient and Hartlepool on home soil, they will have no fear when old foe Sutton United come to town.

Sutton are also coming into this match on the back of a defeat as they failed to claim the points against Maidstone at the weekend. They have been impressive on their travels this term and do certainly carry a threat up front, but with six goals conceded in their last three games there is plenty of signs that defensive frailties are starting to creep in.

Head To Head
It's a dead heat in the head to head between these two sides as each team has a record of five wins, two draws and five defeats. The sides last met last season and it was Sutton United who came out on top after a 2-0 victory.
