Report: Woking 2-1 Bromley

  • Men's

Woking came from behind to edge to a 2-1 victory over Bromley at Kingfield.

It was the hosts who started on the front foot, with Shaun Donnellan reaching a squared pass from Dave Tarpey just inside the box and lashing an effort goalwards, only for Joe Kizzi to make a well timed block to deny him.

At the other end, Ben Williamson made an arced run to meet a sublime delivery from Luke Coulson inside the box and took a good touch, before hammering a volley at goal, which was tipped around the post by Craig Ross.

On 14 minutes, Ben Gerring’s long ball into the Bromley box met the run of Godfrey Poku, but he couldn’t get a clean connection on the ball and his flicked header was easily saved by Ryan Huddart.

Just a minute after that, Bromley took the lead. Excellent wing play from Luke Coulson saw him take on and beat Jack Cook, before cutting inside and unleashing an unstoppable low drive, which beat Ross at his near post.

On 34 mintes, Bromley survived a heart in the mouth moment, as Huddart couldn’t claim a long delivery into the box, and after a scramble ensued, the ball was knocked goalwards, only for an excellent last ditch clearance from Rarmani Edmonds-Green to deny Woking an equaliser.

However, two minutes before the break, Woking would level things up. A poor touch from Chris Bush fell into Woking hands and was passed straight to Dave Tarpey, who went through on goal and finished coolly.

In the second half, both sides took a fair bit of time to settle, and Bromley’s first chance came on 66 minutes. After excellent link up play between Williamson, Billy Bingham and Frankie Raymond, the ball was played into Michael Cheek, who fired a shot on the turn just wide.

Moments later, Bromley would again be frustrated, as good hold up play from Josh Rees in the box allowed him to turn his man and fire at goal from the angle, but Ross made another good save.

The Ravens would be made to pay for not taking those chances on 73 minutes. A long goal kick from Ross fell to the pacy Jamar Loza, who took the Bromley defence on and crossed a well weighted ball into the six yard box, where Jake Hyde was waiting to head home into the bottom corner.

The Ravens failed to create anything of note following the goal, and Woking held on to claim the three points.
