Report: Wrexham AFC 2-0 Bromley

  • Men's

Bromley fell to their third successive defeat at the hands of Wrexham, with two second half goals being the difference between the sides.

In the early stages, there was little to separate the two sides, though a pivotal point occurred midway through the first half, as Bromley were awarded a penalty, as Shaun Pearson was adjudged to have handled, which, on reflection, was harsh on the Dragons captain.

Frankie Raymond stepped up to take the spot kick, but after striking the ball low, towards the bottom right corner, Christian Dibble was equal to it, diving down to parry the ball out for a corner.

Ntumba Massanka and Alex Reid then had tame headers saved by David Gregory, whilst Dibble easily fielded George Porter’s shot at the other end.

However, Wrexham started the second half on the front foot, and allowed a deep cross to be delivered into the box, which was headed home by Massanka, who outjumped his man to nod home from close range just over a minute into the second half.

After Gregory had been forced into a good save, tipping a powerful, angled drive over the bar, Luke Wanadio tested Dibble with a low drive at his near post, which he held well. However, as time drew on, and chances became few and far between, the home side doubled their lead, with Massanka latching on to a perfectly weighted through ball and slotting under the advancing Gregory to seal the three points for his side.
