The Ravens travelled to Plainmoor this weekend to face Torquay United and despite countless dangerous opportunities between the two sides, the scores finished 0-0.
Torquay had the better of the chances in the opening half with the first falling to dangerman Connor Lemonheigh-Evans who headed wide a corner with 10 minutes on the clock.
The Torquay number seven was in the thick of it again soon after, forcing Ellery Balcombe into a fantastic save to tip over his header.
Omar Sowunmi then did well to block Ben Wynter’s close range effort before the Torquay number two came close again, heading just wide on 26 minutes.
Up the other end and the Ravens were handed a big advantage after Joe Lewis pulled down George Alexander who was racing through on goal. The referee took no time in showing the Torquay man a red card.
The resulting free-kick, taken by Corey Whitely, was curled into the arms of Shaun MacDonald.
Lemonheigh-Evans then saw a shot hit the side-netting before Michael Cheek’s shot-on-the-turn went wide.
A dangerous Torquay free-kick was then saved by the legs of Balcombe before Lemonheigh-Evans latched onto the rebound, striking wide, keeping the scores at 0-0 at the break.
It proved to be a quiet start to the second period with Bromley’s first real chance coming on 64 minutes with Omar Sowunmi firing over from range.
Soon after, Stephen Wearne almost opened the scoring, curling narrowly high and wide of the Bromley goal.
on 73 minutes, Billy Bingham’s corner was headed down by Sowunmi before finding Liam Trotter with his back to goal and the number 16 tried to loop the ‘keeper, but it was saved.
Deep into stoppage time, Jack Cawley did well to find Luke Coulson, but the substitute’s strike could only find MacDonald’s gloves.
Both sides held on to clinch a point as the Ravens turn their attentions to the FA Trophy quarter final next weekend against Solihull Moors at Hayes Lane. You can buy your tickets here >
