Bromley are unbeaten in the league. 6 wins and 5 draws. They are by no means a spectacular side, but they are consistent and that goes a long way in the Conference. Cheek and Hackett-Fairchild are their main threats, but they play as a team and they have a never say die attitude. It's going to be a difficult game but I fancy Notts to go there and win. Yes Bromley are 2nd, but no way do they have a good a side as Notts.

I don't think Notts should be concerned about Bromley previous games, yes they might be tough but if Notts stay grouped I think they could find us to be difficult too.

Get the ball on the deck, avoid hoofing it and Notts will do just fine.

I don't expect another win, it would be good but Bromley are flying high at the moment and a point seems less greedy.

I am not sure Notts should be intimidated by any team in this league, anyone can beat anyone and on their day Notts can be a very good team. I think the better performances have come at home, but things do appear to be getting better. It will be interesting to see who takes Doyle's place.

I think Notts should do well enough.

a lot of these games this season are new to me, i dont know what to expect but i think if notts plays well that a good result will come.

what is with all the reactions on social media suggesting notts will lose because of sam graham being injured? a lot of negative calls was made about him, notts will be fine.

Ravens vs Magpies?

It sounds like a rugby match.

I think Notts are starting to settle, the fixture will be important to keep the lineup as close as Saturday's. Hopefully Nathan Tyson will be ready make the bench, as him and Kristian Dennis would give us better options.

A win could change the course of the season and give the fans something really to get behind, momentum is building nicely but I wouldn't be disheartened by a set back. I just hope to see a strong performance.

A cleansheet would be a sign that things are adjusting nicely, performances seem to be quite level at the moment. I just wished Notts could win a team cleanly and by a few goals, it would provide a lot of confidence and would encourage fans to get behind the momentum.

I don't know much about Bromley, just need to work harder than them I feel.

I think the confidence is high at the moment, I don't think the loss of Sam Graham will be something that would affect the club - Neal Ardley just needs to choose wisely whom he brings into the squad.

The right player will see this as an opportunity to start regularly and this could be a lift for us.

Bromley seems to be a good squad, more organised and team focused. There are a few quality players, but nothing that should concern Notts if we go into the game prepared, I think our quality should shine in a game like this.

Do I think they can be written off? Of course not. There's a chance Notts could mess up, they could lift their game but I think Notts will do well.

The form right now doesn't look that bad, Notts needs to avoid losing and I think Neal Ardley will be somewhat defensive with this in the back of his mind.

I think it will be a draw, 2-2. Kristian Dennis and Wes Thomas to score.

Bromley will want to hold the ball with their midfield, then move it into the channels. I do worry about set pieces as they have a couple of good players who deliver excellent balls into the box.

One clinical striker too.

I am not sure there are any issues created by the suspension of Michael Doyle or Sam Graham. It will show if Ardley has the desire to work with players he didn't sign or not, I wouldn't be surprised if a new player arrives next week.

I don't expect Notts to lose, the performance have been steady but getting anything other than a draw would show how the club is on the up right now.

A boring draw might follow but some should be happy with that.

I do feel Michael Doyle will be a defensive miss, him sitting back and being the talking point between the midfield and defence. Yet, I feel Regan Booty should do well if he comes in.

If someone else starts, I am not sure if the formation might need a bit of a re-think.

The key is to control the game and create exciting chances, confidence will lift from that.

Bromley have a very good attack. Michael Cheek and Reeco Hackett-Fairchild have both scored 5 this season. Adrian Clifton is a goal threat and so is recent loan signing Shawn McCoulsky on loan from Forest Green.

Believe they play a 4-4-2 with Hackett-Fairchild and Cheek up front. Luke Coulson is a danger from the wing and we will have to limit the impact of Billy Bingham from central midfield.

Although in the last few away games, Notts have controlled the play in the second half and dominated teams but haven't made there pressure count. We played for 90 minutes last Saturday and won, we need to do that on the road as well.

I think the momentum from doing well would naturally lift the club, it would ease the pressure on Neal Ardley and put Notts in a good position. Bromley are unknown to me, Notts just needs to respect them.

Go for a win and see what happens, I just want to them work hard.

It's tricky to predict how Notts will do on the road, at times they are quite sluggish to get going.

I feel confident though.

2-0 Notts win would be my prediction.

It will be interesting to see if Neal Ardley changes anything, I do feel the formation might need some revision but otherwise the teams good to go. There must be 2-3 players itching to get on the pitch to do well.

I just hope Pierce Bird is given a chance.

We can't just pay players to be passengers when they could do a job. I think it will be 1-1.
