Bromley were agonisingly denied an eight win of the season on Saturday, as a last-gasp equaliser from Boreham Wood left the score at 1-1.

The Ravens started brightly and had the majority of possession throughout the game, stamping their authority early on as Bradley Goldberg tested Russell in the home goal on 11 minutes.

And it was Goldberg causing trouble again in the Boreham Wood box just before the half hour mark, as his cross was only partially cleared by defender O’Loughlin - though Danny Waldren’s shot was held by the goalkeeper.

With the scores level at half-time, it took Bromley just three minutes to break the deadlock after the break through Ben Swallow. His shot deflected off the Boreham Wood captain O’Loughlin and found the back of the net.

Bromley continued to limit their opponents and were handed the advantage after 70 minutes, as midfielder Noto was sent off - reducing Boreham Wood to 10 men.

However, The Ravens failed to see the game out and in the 90th minute the ball was bundled home by Raheem Sterling-Parker - his first professional goal.

The result leaves Bromley second in the league table. They next face Heybridge Swifts at Hayes Lane in the FA Cup third qualifying round on Saturday.
