Bromley managed to pick up a hard earned point at home to Halifax Town on Saturday despite losing keeper David Gregory and defender Richard Brindley minutes before kick off.  

The game got off to an open start, with Jordan Preston hitting the bar with a cross early on for Town, while The Ravens went close when Frankie Sutherland crossed for Jack Holland who headed just wide.

Bromley were given the advantage on 13minutes when Junior Ogedi-Uzokwe was tripped in the box by Nathan Clarke and the referee pointed to the spot. Sutherland’s penalty was pushed on to the post by Halifax keeper Sam Johnson, but he converted the rebound from six yards out.

Soon after Ogedi-Uzokwe, who was a threat down the left all game, crossed for Porter but he scuffed his chance from ten yards out.

Halifax posed most threat on the break and from one surge up field Dave Southwell put a chance over for the visitors and Jonathan Edwards headed off target too.

Ogedi-Uzokwe put in another great ball for Joan Luque, but the Spaniard shot wide. Late on Samni Odelusi went close twice for The Shaymen, but Bromley held on into the break.

The second half got off to a slow start. Bromley lost Wood during the break and moved to 3-5-2. They had a chance when a long George Porter throw found Luque but he put his effort wide.

Halifax kept pushing for an opening and they drew level on the hour when Josh Staunton headed home a set piece in a crowded box.

Bromley looked to get back in front and nearly did so but Porter saw his header saved after good work by Reece Meekums. Ogedi-Uzokwe also saw a goal bound effort cleared off the line by Ryan Sellers.

Bromley did eventually get their goal when Sutherland found Porter with a superb long pass that the lively forward skilfully chipped over Johnson from just inside the box to make it 2-1.

Halifax pressed late in search of the equaliser and they eventually drew level in injury time. Sellers put in a deep cross for Preston who headed home at the far post.

They nearly stole the points deep into stoppage time but Okoye made a superb saving tackle to deny Edwards the winner and preserve a precious point for Neil Smith’s side that keeps them three points above the bottom four.

The Ravens now have a week to get their squad patched up before they travel to Maidstone Utd next weekend for a Kent Derby.
