Bromley fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat at the hands of Sutton United at Gander Green Lane on Saturday.
In a fairly uneventful first half Jay May headed over for Bromley, while Sutton had a number of half chances - the pick of the bunch fell to Jamie Taylor, whose header was well saved by Joe Welch.
Both teams bolstered their intensity in the second half. Jay May missed a gilt-edged chance when one-on-one with Tom Lovelock, his shot was deflected wide by the Sutton goalkeeper.
Brendan Kiernan then had another one-on-one chance just a minute later, but was brought down by Lovelock. The referee however, was not interested.
Shortly after, Bromley went behind. Jamie Slabber’s flicked effort bobbled past Welch and into the net.
Neither side were able to fashion many further chances, until the last minute of normal time.
Bradley Goldberg received the ball from Jack Holland, before taking one too many touches and tapping straight at Lovelock.
The result means Bromley are still in second, one place and one point ahead of Sutton. Their next match is away to Maidenhead on Saturday, kick-off 3pm at York Road.
