Torquay United v Bromley FC

Torquay’s lead at the top of the National League was cut to two points after they were held to a goalless home draw by play-off hopefuls Bromley.

The Seagulls almost broke the deadlock inside three minutes when Scott Boden’s lob over Bromley goalkeeper Mark Cousins came back off the woodwork.

Cousins twice denied Jake Andrews’ long-range efforts in the first half, while Torquay captain Asa Hall saw his deflected strike also saved at the start of the second period.

Sam Sherring and Boden were both off target with headers as the hosts pushed for a winner.

Bromley nearly snatched victory as Frankie Raymond’s deep free-kick almost caught Lucas Colovan off guard as the Torquay goalkeeper was forced to tip over, while Charlie Fox headed wide late on for the visitors.

However, there was one last chance for the home side as Benjamin Kimpioka broke through on goal, but Cousins denied the on-loan Sunderland striker to earn a point for Bromley.
