Bromley 1-1 Harrogate Town
Bromley 1-1 Harrogate Town

Bromley were left to regret their profligacy in front of goal on Saturday as they only took a point from a game they had enough chances to win twice over, but then nearly lost.

Harrogate started brightly when George Thomson had a shot saved by David Gregory. But Bromley then had a strong spell of pressure which ended with George Porter putting them in front when he latched on to a Reece Meekums pass and slotted the ball into the corner of the net from twelve yards out.

Town responded with a good spell of pressure as Tobi Adebayo-Rowling and Porter headed chances off the line from corners. Aaron Williams went close for the visitors before The Ravens finished the half stronger.

Porter hit the inside of the post from the edge of the box, Dan Johnson had a goal ruled out for offside and Junior Uzokwe had a shot blocked after combing well with Omar Bugeil.

Late on Harrogate keeper James Belshaw made a triple save from Bugeil and Porter and then denied Frankie Raymond,Porter and Bugeil again.

The second half stated with Belshaw saving a deflected effort from Porter before a Harrogate battled back into things. Jack Muldoon forced a save from Gregory and Roger Johnson deflected a Warren Burrell shot on to the bar, picking up an injury in the process. Bugeil fired over and Bobby Jo Taylor was denied by Belshaw before Town grabbed their equaliser.

A low cross from the right caught Bromley flat footed and Dominic Knowles tapped in from close range. Bromley tried to rally again with Jack Holland having a header saved by Belshaw low down at his fat post, but the visitors finished on top with Gregory making two good saves from Williams, one bravely at his feet on ten edge of the box.

In the end both keepers earned their sides a point with super saves and Bromley’s strikers will tie their missed opportunities.

The Ravens now travel to Eastleigh on Tuesday looking for their first league win.
