PUBLISHED: 15:46 14 April 2014 | UPDATED: 10:02 15 April 2014

Bromley returned to winning ways thanks to Jay May’s last minute winner against Weston-super-Mare.

It secured a 2-1 victory for the Ravens and went a long way to securing a play-off place.

In a dull first half Brett Trowbridge volleyed wide for the visitors before top scorer Bradley Goldberg and Jake Reid went close for Bromley.

But the hosts came out strongly in the second half and it did not take them long to take the lead.

Goldberg raced into the penalty area and he was upended by Jamie Laird.

The striker picked himself up to stroke in the penalty for his 21st goal of a prolific season.

Bromley were now dominant and Goldberg and Reid missed further chances to extend the lead.

Rob Swaine headed over and Goldberg had a shot easily saved but Weston grabbed a shock equaliser 12 minutes from time.

Dayle Grubb surged into the penalty area, held off three defenders and finished past Joe Welch.

Bromley then poured forward, desperate for the crucial winner.

Substitute May headed wide before he was denied by the goalkeeper, but not to be denied, he scored the winning goal in stoppage time.

Louis Dennis saw his cross deftly flicked on by Goldberg, falling for May to finish from two yards out.

Bromley remain third in the table and face Tonbridge Angels on Saturday.
