A superb team performance saw Bromley overcome yet another bogey team in the shape of Dover Athletic last night.
At a bitterly cold Crabble Stadium, the hosts were on the back foot from the beginning. Jay May and Ashley Nicholls had early opportunities dealt with by the Whites’ defence, but on the half hour mark, Bromley took the lead.
After good interplay between Bradley Goldberg and Brendan Kiernan, the latter audaciously backheeled the ball across goal for Joe Anderson to tap in for his third goal this season.
Moments later, it could have been 2-0. Mitchell Walker did well to prevent Goldberg and Nicholls’ close range efforts from putting Bromley further ahead.
He repeated his heroics moments before half time, keeping out a flurry of efforts following a Kiernan corner.
The second half was remarkably similar to the first. The Ravens had various efforts from Goldberg saved, as well as some being blocked by Athletic’s defence.
Yet, it was all in vain. After 83 minutes, a through ball from the outstanding Ashley Nicholls found top scorer Goldberg, who chipped home from a tight angle, despite the efforts of Terrell Forbes on the goal line.
The win puts Bromley seven points clear of Eastleigh at the top of the Skrill South table.
They are next in action on Saturday, where they make the trip to Basingstoke Town, for a 3pm kick off.
