Bromley stalemate means they fail to seriously cut the gap to National League pacesetters

Bromley missed the chance to close the gap to runaway National League leaders Chesterfield after a goalless draw at mid-table Maidenhead United on Saturday.

The Ravens – second in the fifth tier – have played three games more and are six points behind Paul Cook’s side.

Only the top team are automatically promoted to League Two, with second place booking their place in the play-off semi-finals.

Bromley have never played in the Football League during their history.

“As nil-nils go, it was quite exciting,” Bromley boss Andy Woodman told the club’s YouTube channel.

“It would have been disappointing for us to lose, but it was always going to be something special or something from a set-piece [that would have broken the deadlock].

“It’s a tough place to come – they were eight unbeaten before their defeat to Wealdstone.

“They have got some good results here.

“This is my best result here since I became a manager, so I will take a 0-0.

“Am I disappointed? Of course, I always want the three points. But we have got the clean sheet and we haven’t been beaten. We will take the point.”

Welling United’s National League South winless run was extended to eight games after a 3-1 defeat at home to Aveley.

The Wings were 3-0 down by half-time with Kain Adom scoring from the spot in the 63rd minute.

Welling are 22nd in the National League South.

“I lost my temper at half-time,” Wings boss Danny Bloor told Welling’s YouTube channel. “Confidence gets drained, but you have to try and take some positives.  The second half gave some solace with the young boys coming on.

“We have to learn from it. We need to roll our sleeves up.

“We have to be positive but there is no secret that we’re getting punished.

“We don’t seem to get much rub of the green, but it’s like that – it’s no good feeling sorry for ourselves.”
