Bromley 1 FC Halifax Town 0: Lacklustre Halifax see their momentum checked as grateful Bromley capitalise

FC Halifax Town missed the chance to edge away from the relegation zone as they lost a poor game 1-0 at Bromley.

Halifax looked to be heading for a point until Adam Cunnington broke Town’s resolve 15 minutes from the end.

The hosts will probably have played better than this and lost this season, but still did enough to earn their win against a Halifax side who defended diligently but never got going in attack.

Moses Emmanuel should have netted with the first chance but fluffed a simple tap-in from six yards. Lee Minshull was then only denied a goal from similar range by a block from Scott McManus.

Emmanuel went close again with a neat turn and shot that dribbled inches wide. Joe Anderson’s header was then held by Sam Johnson as the traffic continued to be mainly one-way.

Bromley looked out of ideas until a superb run by substitute Bradley Goldberg before his deft pass played in Cunnington and he fired the ball unnervingly across Johnson. That at least stung Town into action and their first, and only, shot of the night, which saw Bencherif hit the post.

Bromley: Julian, Holland, Anderson, Francis, Swaine, Chorley, Minshull, Joseph-Dubois (Dennis 78), Gordon, Emmanuel (Goldberg 69), Cunnington (Fuseini 88). Unused substitutes: Coombes, May.
