Bromley boss hoping not to lose in-form striker

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Junior Ogedi-Uzokwe’s 12th-minute goal secured Bromley a 1-0 win at Maidstone United in the National League.

The Ravens’ fourth victory of the campaign lifts them to 16th in the table, six points clear of the drop zone.

Ogedi-Uzokwe is on loan from Colchester and has five goals for the South London outfit.

“I’ve known Junior for a couple of years and he is just producing what we know he can,” said Bromley manager Neil Smith. “I hope Colchester leave him with us for a little bit, leave him alone.

“The boys were brilliant. We worked from Monday to Friday to prep ourselves. We knew it was a difficult game. They have got some big boys up front and are very direct. But, to a man, everyone was amazing.

“The last week-and-a-half to two weeks, the boys have shown their commitment to the club and to the manager.”
