Clayton: We expect a tough game
Romford captain Paul Clayton does not expect an easy ride against Ryman Division One North new boys Barkingside tonight (Wednesday).
Former Boro defender Matt Frew brings his team to Ship Lane having ended a three-game losing run with a 1-1 draw against Dereham at the weekend.
Boro slumped to a 1-0 defeat at basement boys Ware, after keeper Atu Ngoy was sent off for headbutting former Hornchurch striker Tony Martin and conceding a penalty, from which Spencer Knight beat Aaron Omand to claim the points.
Clayton said: “We want the three points. Saturday was disappointing. We didn’t play well, but we should have got something from the game.
A moment of madness cost us.
“We’re expecting a tough game. They’re going to want to beat us to gain the bragging rights.”
Barkingside include several Romford old boys, including the likes of Richard Oxby, Adam Salmon, Paul Kavanagh, Matt Toms and Toran Senghore.
But Clayton says there is no room for sentiment during tonight’s Boro reunion, adding: “It will be good to see some old faces but once we cross that white line there’s no friends!”
