Bromley edged a thrilling 3-2 encounter with Concord Rangers to remain in secondnd place in the Skrill South.

The Ravens started very well, as Elliott Buchanan put them ahead after just six minutes with a shot from just outside the area.

Just 14 minutes later Concord equalised. A free-kick from just outside the area was blasted through a gap in the wall by Sam Higgins, with Lewis Carey unsighted in the goal.

The Beach Boys doubled their lead on 23 minutes. Gary Ogilvie picked up the ball out wide and cut in, unleashing a fierce shot past Carey to make it 2-1.

Before half-time, Shamir Mulliings shot wide, whilst Rob Swaine headed past the post for Bromley.

The second-half saw Brendan Kiernan come on for the away side. Good link up play with Joe Anderson saw the left-back cross through a group of players to right-back Dean Pooley, who slotted past Jamie Butler to restore parity.

However, Bromley were not finished there. Butler saved a powerful Kiernan effort, before the decisive goal was struck.

Superb work from Kiernan again saw the winger cross into the area, finding Goldberg. The agile front-man struck the ball into the net, with Butler only managing to get a hand to it.

Ben Swallow then replaced Pierre Joseph-Dubois, and made a superb impact.

His dipping shot was deflected over for a corner, which again saw Bromley come close. The Ravens managed to keep possession in the final third for the remainder of the game.

Bromley next face Basingstoke Town at Hayes Lane this Saturday. The game kicks off at 3pm.
