Watch: Fancy re-living Saturday's despair? Here are the lowlights of Chester FC's loss at Bromley FC

Profligate finishing and defensive lapses see the Blues fall to a 3-0 defeat in London

Moses Emmanuel has scored 12 goals this season for Bromley, that's as many as the entire Chester FC side have mustered in 13 games.

Saturday saw Chester make their first ever trip to Bromley, and it's a journey that Blues fans won't relish making again any time soon.

Wastefulness in front of goal, a familiar tale this season, coupled with a wretched defensive display saw Steve Burr's side limp to a 3-0 reverse at Hayes Lane.

The difference? On-fire Emmanuel showed the value of having a clinical finisher in the side as he netted a brace to seal the three points for Mark Goldberg's side and hand them their sixth league triumph in a row.

But Chester had more than their fair share of chances in the first half, with Craig Hobson and Ross Hannah two to waste gilt-edged chances.

An unhappy Burr revealed after the match that he would now be looking to draft in fresh blood in a bid to reverse their worrying decline.
