Bromley 1-1 Woking
Vanarama National League
1st April 2024

Michael Doyle made three changes to the side beaten by Eastleigh on Good Friday, with Alan Judge and Timi Odusina absent from the squad, being replaced by Dion Kelly-Evans and Finn Delap. Ricky Korboa made his first start since returning from injury, replacing Alfie Pavey, who dropped to the bench, whilst new loan signing Sonny Singh made the bench.

Woking looked lively early on, but a dangerous Bromley free kick on seven minutes saw Michael Cheek given a free header. He couldn’t direct the effort either side of Jaaskelainen.

After a foul on the edge of the box by Luke Wilkinson on Corey Whitely, the Woking defender was booked. The following free kick from Ashley Charles went just over the bar.

Woking made the breakthrough on the stroke of half time when a superb ball from Kevin Berkoe was met by Dan Moss, who squeezed the cross in and left Ricky Korboa with a tap in.

Half-time: Bromley 0-1 Woking

The second half continued in the same cagey fashion as the first half, with chances limited to shots from distance and a lack of quality in the final third.

A half chance for Will Davies on 76 minutes saw him fire high over the bar on the half volley as Andy Woodman looked to shuffle his team.

Woking had a couple of good chances on the break, as Kendall was well denied by Lewis Thomas with ten minutes left, before a huge chance for the hosts.

Michael Cheek was denied twice by Will Jaaskelainen in the space of a couple of minutes, first with his body and then at his near post.

But Bromley found the finishing touch in stoppage time, when a long throw was hammered into the bottom corner by Kido Taylor-Hart.

A point not a bad result for Woking, but they were oh so close to a big win at Hayes Lane.
