Bromley progressed through to the third round of the Kent Senior Cup with a controlled win over Faversham at Hayes Lane on Tuesday night.

Manager Neil Smith fielded a strong team for the match despite having a First Round FA Cup game at home to Peterborough Utd on Saturday.

It was the visitors however who started the stronger with Danny Walder having a free kick saved by Kristupas Burba and the Dean Grant shot just wide.

The Ravens settled down after the opening spell and were in front on 15minutes when John Goddard, who had just hit the foot of the post, then sent a powerful drive past Will Godmon from just outside the box to make it 1-0.

Junior Ogedi-Uzokwe had a curling effort saved before Bromley made it 2-0 on 25minutes when Marc-Anthony Okoye headed home from a corner, directing the ball into the corner of the net from six yards out.

Okoye playing in midfield looked comfortable on the ball and linked play up well sitting in front of the back four. Ogedi-Uzokwe had another shot saved and Goddard fired just over as Bromley headed into the break looking comfortable.

The only negative being Aiden Enver’s yellow card for a poor challenge on George Monger, who later had to go off injured.

The second half saw Bromley having most of the possession and they made it 3-0 on the hour mark when a quick passing movement was finished off by Kyle De Silva via deflection of a Town defender.

De Silva grabbed his second goal only a minute later when he produced a sublime finish past Godmon from just inside the box following another quick move up field.

De Silva could have had a hat trick but his effort was struck wide. Aiden Enver and Billy Craske nearly hit the fifth but it was the Lillywhites who struck and pulled a goal back on 76minutes. Faversham opening up the home defence for Dean Grant to shoot past Burba low into the far corner from just inside the area.

The game petered out with Bromley on the attack but they couldn't break the deadlock again.

This was an entertaining cup tie to the fans who made the effort and a useful workout for the Bromley players looking for game time and a chance to catch the manager’s eye.
