The FA Cup - First Round

Bromley 1-3 Peterborough United

Matt Godden scored twice as Peterborough fought back to beat 10-man Bromley and move into the second round of the FA Cup.

Godden scored either side of the break to send the League One high-flyers through and ultimately end their National League opponents' hopes of an unlikely scalp.

But the turning point in the match came as Bromley's Frankie Raymond was sent off for an altercation with Peterborough's George Cooper when the home side led 1-0.

They had taken the lead five minutes before half-time when Frankie Sutherland's free-kick was met by veteran centre-back Roger Johnson, who leapt highest to nod in over Aaron Chapman.

It was seconds before the break when the Ravens were reduced to 10 men as Raymond needlessly tussled with Cooper and was dismissed for violent conduct.

The resulting free-kick led to Peterborough's equaliser as Godden curled home a beautiful strike past David Gregory to turn the tide for the EFL side.

Posh took the lead in the 56th minute when Jason Naismith's cross was met brilliantly by Godden who fired his shot first time into the bottom corner.

The visitors were comfortable for most of the second half and killed the game off in the 84th minute when Joe Ward beat the offside trap to coolly slotted beyond Gregory.
