Bromley made it three wins from three with a stunning second-half comeback over Dorchester at Hayes Lane on Saturday.

Goals from Pierre Joseph-Dubois and Elliott Buchanan ensured the hosts went a fifth game unbeaten.

However, it was the away side who started better and after just seven minutes, former Bromley striker Ben Watson capitalised on some poor defending and struck a superb volley which went in via the post.

Bromley immediately began to shade possession, but failed to create many clear cut chances.

That was until Louie Theophanous found himself with only visiting ‘keeper Benjamin Buchel to beat, though the Liechtenstein international stopper produced an outstanding save to divert the ball out for a corner.

The home side continued to apply the pressure, and were nearly rewarded when Nathan Walker almost diverted the ball into his own net following Sanchez Ming’s cross.

The Ravens continued to press Dorchester after the break, and were duly rewarded. Captain Ali Fuseini floated in a curling free kick, which saw Joseph-Dubois lose his marker and head home his 16th goal this season.

It was more of the same after the goal, with Welsh testing Buchel again.

The latter however, injured himself in the process and had to be stretchered off. In his place, came Jason Matthews - but the home side were not to settle for a point.

With just four minutes left, superb play from Joseph-Dubois saw him pull the ball back for substitute Elliott Buchanan, who smashed the ball past the despairing ‘keeper.

The win sees Bromley move up to 9th in the Conference South. They next face Sutton United away on Tuesday, before playing bottom side Truro City at Hayes Lane next Saturday, kick-off 3pm.
