Romford’s last two results should be a stepping stone towards greater things according to assistant manager Mark Lord. and he also believes the Christmas period can help Boro’s chances of a positive second half of the season.
A run of seven games without a win was ended on Wednesday night at Ship Lane with a 2-0 victory over Burnham Ramblers, thanks to goals from skipper Jack Barry and Nick Reyonolds, and the aim now is to move up the table.
Next up is a trip to play Waltham Forest at Wadham Lodge tomorrow (Saturday).
Lord said: “It’s a big one Saturday and then the Christmas period coming up where you do play them extra few games.
“If we can go on a little run and get through Christmas, who knows?
“Last Saturday we got the point and I said to them that is a step in the right direction.
“We have gone on from there and now we have got the three points and we’ll look forward to Saturday now.”
Away points haven’t been easy to find for Romford, with just four of their 21 points total coming away from Ship Lane and they have lost seven of their nine away matches.
However, three of those points were against much-fancied Maldon & Tiptree, which shows they can pick up points against strong opposition on the road.
“We are more than capable of going away from home and winning a game,” said Lord.
“It is just the fact at the moment we are, well we were, on a downward spiral but now I am hoping we have turned the corner.
“I am hoping we can go there Saturday with confidence and belief and hopefully we can come away with something.”
