Team News:

Maidstone United’s Recent Form:

Maidstone picked up a point last weekend at Bromley.

They fell behind after just five minutes when Josh Rees found the net, but were back on level terms 30 minutes later, Jamar Loza with the goal.

The first half looked to be ending all square before George Porter put Bromley back ahead in stoppage time.

The second half saw Bromley try to get a third goal but it was Maidstone who would equalise, Blair Turgott firing home with less than 15 minutes to go.
