Bromley 3 Chester 0

A clinical first half Bromley display heaped more London-based misery on the Blues at the Courage Stadium.

National League leading scorer Moses Emmanuel bagged a brace, scoring first half goals either side of Louis Dennis's strike.

The hosts had the first real chance of the game - as Anthony Cook curled a shot wide from twenty yards.

The Blues' attacking creation was a threat throughout the first half - with Jordan Chapell and Craig Hobson blasting their respective shots over the crossbar.

Nevertheless, the sucker punch arrived from Bromley in the form of the prolific Moses Emmanuel; he pounced onto a mistake by Ben Heneghan and slotted home.

Ross Hannah would then miss a glorious chance moments later - volleying wide from six yards from a pinpoint corner.

The lead was doubled for the Lillywhites ten minutes after their opener - as Louis Dennis beat the offside trap and slid the ball past Jon Worsnop.

Steve Burr's side squandered a flurry of chances in the lead up to half time; Ian Sharps bundled the ball over the bar from six yards - before Craig Mahon forced Chris Kettings into two smart saves in a matter of minutes.

A miserable first half would be made even worse following these chances, as Emmanuel made it three on the stroke of half time - volleying home from close range.

After the break, Chester's attacking stranglehold would continue - with John Rooney stinging the palms of Kettings from long range - before Hobson rifled a shot just off target.

Chris Kettings put in a superb performance in the home net - he made his best save of the lot to deny Tom Shaw with just ten minutes remaining; condemning the Blues to successive defeats.
