Tonbridge reached the Kent Senior Cup semi-finals on the night striker Mikel Suarez scored the first goal of his comeback.
Angels beat 10-man Bromley 5-1 after extra-time at Longmead on Tuesday with doubles for David Ijaha and Mark Lovell and a Frannie Collin strike.
Meanwhile, Suarez headed loan club Hastings in front against East Thurrock in a match that ended 1-1.
Angels boss Tommy Warrilow (pictured) has sent Suarez to Hastings to get games as he steps up his comeback from a career-threatening head injury. Warrilow said: "He had to score a header, didn’t he?
"If he’s flying we’ll get him back but I’d like him to play at least six games down there. Mikel can’t drive at the moment so we handpicked Hastings because our old player Ben Judge has gone there and he can jump in the car with him."
Warrilow praised in-form striker Lovell after Angels’ win over Bromley. Lovell started the season down the pecking order but has forced his way into the side.
Warrilow said: "Good things happen to good people and Mark is reaping the benefits of staying patient. He’s a pleasure to have around the place and is showing what a decent player he is."
Angels are at home again on Saturday with Chelmsford the visitors. Defender Dan Walder (dead leg/hamstring) is doubtful, while Nathan Koranteng is set to rejoin Kingstonian on loan.
