Harrow Borough 2 Bromley 0

Wednesday 25th January 2006

Bromley suffered a set back in their bid to escape the relegation mire on a freezing cold Tuesday night away to Harrow Borough, writes Colin Head.

Fielding just a 12-man squad, despite having a reserve and youth team at their disposal, Bromley's patched up side failed to take their chances and Harrow grabbed the points thanks to two second half goals.

Harrow started on top pushing Bromley back and Colin Luckett had to clear an early chance off the line.

However, as Bromley rallied they did start to create chances Barry Gardner crossed for Des Boateng whose header was saved by Mali International Keeper Keita Karamoko.

Sam Wood had a short saved as the game went from end to end and Andy Walker did well to keep out Elliott Onochie at the other end.

Just before the break Mark Tompkins crossed for Ellis Remy, but the former Margate striker headed over.

The second half saw Bromley start very brightly Allan McLeod and Gary Drewett had shots saved by Karamoko, but as they were starting to dominate Borough broke away and took the lead when James Bent shot across Andy Walker and into the net from ten-yards.

For a while things went flat and the pitch started to freeze making things harder.

Onochie nearly made it two, but he shot wide before The Ravens picked themselves up Michael Donovan came on for his debut and looked lively down the left.

Drewett, Remy and Wood all had efforts saved and Bromley also had a good penalty shout turned down when Boateng was brought down in the box, but then dead on 90 minutes they were caught out on the break and former Tooting & Wimbledon man Onochie made it 2-0 to secure the points.

Bromley: Walker, McLeod, Luckett, Willy, Henriques, Gardner, Boateng, Drewett, Wood, Tompkins (Donovan 72), Remy.
