Unibet's Vanarama National League Semi-Final Preview

By Sam Elliott

So far it’s been the same old National League play-off story - well, what else did everyone really expect?

The Eliminators were both won by the team who finished lower in the table as home advantage once again counted for precious little.

The semi-finals have a history of not going the way anyone expects either and as Unibet explain, nothing can be ruled out on Sunday.

Notts County vs Boreham Wood (12.30pm KO)

You can understand Notts County annoyance and having to still show their faces. After all, they did hit 107 points.

We know why they’re here and know they’ve not got themselves to blame, timing their best season for many years a little wrong now they’re trying to secure what many are saying is some football justice.

Notts ended 35 points ahead of Boreham Wood but they also conceded two more goals than them and know they will be in a game on Sunday.

Luke Garrard’s team have already frustrated them twice this season and with Wembley on the line count them out at your peril.

Chesterfield vs Bromley (Kick-off 3.30pm)

As Paul Cook snuck out of Woking on Wednesday night, he had clearly seen enough.

That or the Chesterfield manager was sick of the sight of Bromley celebrating, less than two weeks after they beat his side 2-0 a result which looked at the time to have stuck a dagger through their top three hopes.

If things would have panned out that way, these two would have already met.

Cook, hoodie over his head to avoid detection, headed for home before seeing Andy Woodman’s men seal their semi-final place. What he did see would have given him food for thought.

They fully deserved the Eliminator victory and the Bromley manager says he has enough spirit within his camp to rival even the division’s best.

The Londoners will need something very special on Sunday against a team who have scored 12 goals in three home games. But they are undefeated in ten and this is one of the biggest games in the Ravens history.

They face a very different Chesterfield team to the one that imploded last time, very much second best in last May’s semi-final at Solihull Moors.

Wembley is one good afternoon away and the stakes couldn’t be higher!
