Bromley will look to win consecutive Vanarama National League matches for the first time this season when they entertain Halifax Town on Saturday.

The Ravens recorded a 2-1 victory away to Ebbsfleet United on Tuesday night, ending a run of four straight defeats in the league.

Junior Ogedi-Uzokwe fired Neil Smith’s men ahead in the 16th minute, before Frankie Sutherland doubled their advantage in the 32nd minute.

United pulled a goal back within the first minute of the second half through Jack Powell, but the Hayes Lane club were able to hold on for a first win in six league matches.

The success over the Fleet eased the pressure on Bromley boss Smith after a 5-0 drubbing away to Solihull Moors on Saturday.

The Ravens found themselves 4-0 down at the break at the Automated Technology Group Stadium after goals from Alex Gudger, Darren Carter, Jermaine Hylton and Danny Wright, with Jamey Osborne completing the rout in the second half.

And speaking after that defeat, Smith revealed the performance from the Hayes Lane outfit left him feeling embarrassed.

“That was the worst performance we’ve given since I’ve been at the club,” Smith told the club website.

“I was embarrassed and apologised to the supporters who had made a fantastic effort to get to Solihull.

“We huffed and puffed in the second half and showed a bit of guile, but it was all done in the first half.”

Mercifully, Bromley responded in style by getting the better of Ebbsfleet on Tuesday night.

The key for the Ravens now is to follow that up with another triumph against Halifax on Saturday as they look to build some momentum.

If Smith’s men are searching for good omens, they need look no further than their last match against the Shaymen in January of this year.

After a goalless first half, Louis Dennis netted for the Hayes Lane outfit before Josh Rees bagged a brace, but both scorers have since moved on.

Bromley can also draw confidence from Halifax’s recent poor form, with Jamie Fullarton’s side not winning any of their six matches so far in September.

The Ravens will hope to ensure the Shaymen go the entire month without a league triumph by claiming all three points at Hayes Lane on Saturday as Smith’s men look to kick-start their season after a stuttering start to the campaign.
