Match report: Bromley 3-2 King’s Lynn Town

Latest News

Bromley made it 11 consecutive league games unbeaten as they defeated King’s Lynn Town 3-2 in a pulsating game at Hayes Lane.

In the opening stages of the game, the Ravens got off to the worst possible start. Jayden Davis weaved his way past a couple of Bromley defenders down the wing and made his way into Bromley’s penalty area. The midfielder made no mistake and finished with ease, leaving Mark Cousins with no chance to give King’s Lynn the lead.

The visitors kept on attacking, with Michael Clunan seeing his powerful shot saved down the middle by Cousins. In a half of few chances for both teams, Louis Dennis shot from range, with the ball nestling wide of the goal. As the half was coming to an end, Luke Coulson’s precise cross found Michael Cheek, who expertly headed in to equalise for Bromley.

In the second half, the opposition started with real intent and took the lead. Ross Barrows from 25 yards hit a venomous shot into the bottom corner, leaving the home supporters speechless. With just under half an hour remaining of the game, Bromley were determined to get back into the match. Chris Bush found Omar Sowunmi from a free kick, with the defender’s effort being saved from point blank range by Paul Jones, for only the ball to fall to James Alabi who finished with style.

Bromley then kept piling on the pressure, having seen a Coulson cross parried away by Jones, Cheek came the closest to completing a comeback for the hosts, seeing his shot come off the post following a corner. However, that missed chance would not matter minutes later. Following a powerful shot by Bush, Cheek was there in the right place at the right time and scored from close range, a spirited comeback from Bromley to say the least. 

Following a harsh challenge on Jude Arthurs, Coulson floated a delivery in the box for Harry Forster, who volleyed wide. The win places Bromley firmly in the play-off places, as they welcome Yeovil Town on Tuesday night in their next game.

Bromley: 1, Mark Cousins, 5 Chris Bush, 6 Omar Sowunmi, 7 Luke Coulson, 8 Jude Arthurs, 9 Michael Cheek, 11 Louis Dennis (Cawley), 16 Liam Trotter, 17 Byron Webster (C) (Partington), 19 Harry Forster, 22 George Alexander (Alabi)
