The Lions look to break their losing streak as they host eleventh-place Broadfields United this weekend. 

Vale Farm is just a three-mile trip from Broadfields playing ground, so it’s yet another local team for Wembley to face. Wembley have lost their last two games, with the most recent being a 4-1 defeat to Edgware & Kingsbury. Broadfields are in opposite form to Wembley at the moment, grabbing wins in their last two games over Flackwell Heath and Windsor. 

One of Wembley’s main problems this season has been their struggle with letting goals in, only managing to keep three clean sheets in their sixteen league games so far this season. Broadfields’ top-score Krisitan Belousas will be eyeing up this fixture, attempting to add to his seven this season from midfield. 

This doesn’t take away from Wembley’s threat, especially since the game is being played at Vale Farm. The Lions have taken all three points from seven of their ten home games this season, boasting an intimidating record. 

The Fighting Cocks have struggled away from home this season, winning just three of nine, suggesting Vale Farm could have an impact. Broadfields also have similar issues with conceding goals, keeping just four clean sheets themselves. This game could bring some high-scoring entertainment if both teams want to go at each other.

Broadfields are still fairly new to step five football, being promoted in 2019, but they’re doing their part to make themselves established in the league. They suffered a harsh start to the season, with two wins and six losses from their first eight games. However, they’ve picked it up more recently with four wins, one draw and just three defeats in their last eight. 

Peculiarly, after sixteen games in the league, Wembley still haven’t drawn a game, and Broadfields have only drawn one. The combination of the likelihood to see goals and the lack of a chance of a draw brings a high level of excitement to the game. 

Wembley and Broadfields have faced off before when they were both a part of the Spartan South Midlands Football League, where they played each other three times. Wembley won one fixture, and Broadfields took the other two. 

Midfielder Alfie Bates believes the opposition will be up for a tough game but being back at home will be a bonus for Wembley.

He also called attention to the fact it’s the fourth local game Wembley have played in a row, which can bring a bit of tension and rivalry to these league fixtures. 

“Edgware was a very disappointing result, which we are ultimately keen to rectify.

“I think it’s important that we react as a unified group and continue to work hard together as a unit. Our only goal on this coming Saturday is three points”. 

Wembley’s intentions are clear and it’s safe to say that Broadfields will be coming to Vale Farm with a similar goal.

In Ian Bates’ push for promotion, points in these games can be big lifts for morale and drive for the rest of the season.
