Welling United got their season back on track with a comfortable 2-0 win over local rivals Bromley on Saturday to move up to third in Blue Square Bet South.

The Wings travelled to Hayes Lane on a run of two games without a win but took the lead ten minutes before the break thanks to Theo Fairweather-Johnson with his first competitive goal for the club.

There had been a moment of concern for Wings player-manager Jamie Day when defender Jack Obersteller had to be substituted with an injury after 20 minutes.

The away side clinched the points a minute into the second half with a fine strike from midfielder Lee Clarke.

With international fixtures meaning there were no Premier League and few Football League games played, Saturday was ‘Non-League Day’ and more than 1,300 attended the game.

Welling face Blue Square North outfit Bishop’s Stortford in the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup on Saturday at Park View Road with a place in the first round proper awaiting the winners.

The next league game is away to mid-table Maidenhead United the following Saturday.
