Mark Goldberg’s Bromley eased into the next round of the London Senior Cup with a 4-0 victory over London Bari last night.

A Pierre-Joseph Dubois brace, a penalty from Bradley Goldberg and a late strike from Josh Oyinsan gave Bromley the victory over a spirited London Bari side, who had impressive goalkeeper Ricardo Braganza to thank for keeping the score down.

Jay May shot wide with barely two minutes on the clock, before Bradley Goldberg did the same, his effort going narrowly the wrong side of the post. The Ravens took a well deserved lead on 16 minutes, when May’s well weighted pass was latched onto by Joseph-Dubois, and the front man made no mistake, chipping the onrushing Braganza.

The Bari ‘keeper then made excellent saves to deny Goldberg twice, and Taylor Parmenter just before Bromley did extend their lead.

Good link up play between May and Goldberg saw the latter cut the ball back to Joseph-Dubois, who finished emphatically from the edge of the penalty area for his third goal in two games.

The second half saw Bari continue to press for a response, but they were restricted to long range efforts despite some good possession.

Bradley Goldberg’s well-taken penalty made it 3-0, after Braganza saved from Swallow and Joseph-Dubois had put the ball into the net, but only after the referee blew for the penalty.

Ben Swallow should have put Bromley further into the lead, but missed from close range, before the busy Braganza saved yet again from Joe Anderson. Debut man Josh Oyinsan saw a long range effort saved, before getting the goal he craved. Swallow’s pinpoint cross was met by the youngster for a close range finish.

The final chance of the night fell to Elliott Buchanan, who saw a powerful free kick canon off the crossbar. The win sees Bromley progress into the semi-finals of the London Senior Cup.

Bromley are next in action this Saturday, where they play Farnborough at home. Kick off is 3pm at Hayes Lane.
