Marcus Bignot hailed his battle-weary Blues as they grabbed a deserved share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw at Bromley.

Missing a host of key players, including Ryan Astles, Tom Shaw, Reece Hall-Johnson, Jordan Archer and Craig Mahon, the Blues shrugged off their growing injury list to claim a morale boosting point.

Ross Hannah handed the Blues a 14th minute lead after collecting Lucas Dawson’s pass and firing low underneath David Gregory.

And although the visitors were pegged back just a minute later as Louis Dennis levelled, Bignot was proud of his side.

“You only have to look where Bromley are in the league, it was always going to be a difficult game,” said the Blues boss. “I’ve got to give credit to our players, they’ve acquitted themselves really well again.

“We were comfortable coming in at half time in terms of how we went about our business and how we applied ourselves.

“In the second-half they’ve applied the pressure and we’ve stood up to it.

“It’s a really positive result for us.”
