Bromley 4-2 Ebbsfleet United
Bromley moved up to sixth in the National League table after beginning the new year with a 4-2 victory over Ebbsfleet.
Ebbsfleet started brightly but it was the hosts who went ahead after 17 minutes when captain Jack Holland knocked the ball beyond visiting goalkeeper Nathan Ashmore from close range.
Bromley doubled their advantage in the 28th minute when George Porter turned the ball in at the second attempt with a back-heeled effort after Adam Mekki's deflected strike had wrong-footed the goalkeeper.
The home side made it 3-0 eight minutes later when Luke Wanadio's cross from the left flank found its way into the net.
Ebbsfleet began their fightback six minutes before the break, pulling one back when Andy Drury got in behind Bromley's defence and tucked the ball beyond David Gregory from the left side of the box.
And the visitors reduced the deficit to a single goal in the 54th minute when Sean Shields rifled home from a tight angle.
The Fleet continued to push as the second half wore on but Bromley restored their two-goal cushion late on as Louis Dennis' strike was deflected into the net in the 85th minute.
