Tonbridge boss Tommy Warrilow was in the crowd at Hayes Lane on Tuesday to watch his side’s next opponents stun Skrill South leaders Bromley.

Concord Rangers, who the Angels play on Saturday, became the first side to beat the Ravens on their own patch this season when they won 2-1.

Victory lifted Concord into the top half, 10 points clear of Tonbridge, who occupy the final relegation spot and Warrilow said: “Bromley have been fantastic but everyone’s going to have a blip at some stage.

“Unfortunately for us, theirs was against one of the teams around us and those three points have catapulted them up the division. But it was nothing I didn’t know because anyone can beat anyone in this league.”

Tonbridge are prime examples of that, having already turned over promotion hopefuls Eastleigh, Sutton and Eastbourne Borough.

Last weekend’s 2-1 defeat at Weston-super-Mare may have left them in the drop zone, but they have games in hand and Warrilow is staying positive.

He said: “It’s not nice to see yourselves down there but I’ll look at it once everyone’s played the same number of games. In the last four games we should have a lot more (points) than what we’ve got."

Tonbridge, who host Bath City on Tuesday, welcome back midfielder Philip Appiah (toe) against Concord, although on-loan Hyde striker Tom Collins has been unwell this week.
