Bromley 4-0 Truro City
12:06pm Monday 11th March 2013 in Sport
BROMLEY returned to winning ways following their midweek 4-3 defeat at Sutton United with a comprehensive victory over bottom club Truro City on Saturday at Hayes Lane.
The hosts made two changes, Elliott Buchanan exchanging places on the substitutes bench with Mike Jones and a debut for reserve team player Dawayne Campbell, who came in for the injured Jack Holland.
Unfortunately, Campbell’s debut only lasted 18 minutes as a clash of heads resulted in him suffering a broken nose and severe concussion, which saw him taken to hospital.
Bromley made the perfect start to the game when Ali Fuseini opened the scoring within 30 seconds.
From the kick-off, the Bromley captain fed Ishmael Welsh, who pulled a pass back to Louie Theophanous.
His shot was fumbled by visiting keeper Paul Hider and Fuseini stroked the loose ball home at the second attempt.
Paul Kendall headed over from a free-kick for the visitors before Fuseini’s high through ball just failed to reach Buchanan, as Hider came out of goal to block.
Mike Jones then replaced the unfortunate Campbell in the 19th minute.
There was very little goalmouth action at either end for the remainder of the half, although Hider did well to palm away Welsh’s fierce cross field shot just after the half hour mark.
The home side doubled their score in the opning minute of the second half when Fuseini played Theophanous in on goal to place a firm shot just wide of the advancing keeper.
Theophanous had the ball in the net again Two minutes later, but the effort was disallowed for an infringement in the build up.
Bromley were well on top and Theophanous was just unable to turn on Pierre Joseph-Dubois’ cross, while Hider did well to react to a deflection off Buchanan’s shot before Joseph-Dubois made it 3-0 on 64 minutes.
Jones chased a cross from the right to retrieve possession on the left touchline.
He beat Les Afful before crossing for Joseph-Dubois to apply the finishing touch from six yards.
Four minutes later, Joseph-Dubois grabbed Bromley’s fourth, and his second, of the match following good work by substitute Max Noble and Theophanous.
Bromley keeper Joe Welch did well to tip over a long dipping shot from Afful in stoppage time, while Joseph-Dubois very nearly headed past his own keeper from Martin Watts’ resultant corner kick.
The final action of the game came with another Truro corner, from which Cody Cooke fired over from eight yards.
