After losing out 4-3 to Sutton United with the last kick of the game on Tuesday, a clinical second half display from Bromley ensured a comprehensive 4-0 victory over bottom side Truro City.

The Ravens made a blistering start to the game, with captain Ali Fuseini tapping in after just 24 seconds following visiting goalkeeper Paul Hider’s initial save from Louie Theophanous.

City, who were deducted 10 points due to going into administration, began to apply the pressure, forcing two corners before Paul Kendall headed high and wide.

Bromley debutant Dawayne Campbell was taken off with a broken nose and concussion after falling foul of an aerial challenge. He was replaced by Mike Jones, with Bromley having no other centre backs.

Hider again kept the visitors in the game, with an acrobatic save from Ishmael Welsh after the winger had found himself in space.

Bromley then started the second half as they did the first. After three minutes, Ali Fuseini’s clever lob found Theophanous, who controlled the ball well before calmly finishing past Hider for 2-0.

Truro then has their best chance of the game. The lively Andy Watkins found himself through on goal, but Joe Welch stood tall and saved well with his outstretched leg.

After 65 minutes, Bromley scored again. This time, Mike Jones’ played in a superb low cross, which was duly converted by Pierre Joseph-Dubois in clinical fashion.

Just three minutes later, he added another. The French winger received the ball after a good run by substitute Max Noble, before slotting past Hider for his 19th goal in all competitions this season.

Bromley remain in 9th place in the Conference South, and host Tooting and Mitcham United in the London Senior Cup on Tuesday evening, kick off 7:45pm at Hayes Lane.
