Match report: Bromley 1-2 Yeovil Town

Latest News

The Ravens welcomed Yeovil Town to Hayes Lane on a baltic Tuesday night as Andy Woodman’s side looked to extend their 11 game unbeaten run in the league, but it was not meant to be for Bromley tonight.

In what was an end-to-end start to the game, it was the visitors who took the lead after 18 minutes, and in great fashion as well, with Tom Knowles cutting in narrowly from the left-hand side and curling the ball past Mark Cousins and into the top corner.

After the Glovers took the lead, Bromley had the pick of the chances through George Alexander and Michael Cheek, and it was the latter that equalised for Bromley, after referee Tom Bishop awarded a spot-kick for the Ravens, Cheek does what he does best and fired home the equaliser just before the half.

However, the first-half goals did not stop there, after former Bromley man Charlie Wakefield haunted his old employers, with a fantastic strike, a lot like Yeovil’s first, to put him and his side 2-1 up at the interval.

The second period was dominated by Woodman’s side and it started to turn into a fiery game as Bromley tried to stage a fight-back, much like in Saturday’s previous match against King’s Lynn Town. 

Despite the dominance from the home side, no real chances were created to get them back into the game, and despite the in-form James Alabi coming on at half-time, he and the ever-reliable Bromley strike-force couldn’t equalise and the game ended 2-1 to Yeovil.
