Martin fears broken arm
Romford are waiting anxiously to find out if defender Scott Truman suffered a broken arm in their Bank Holiday Monday win over Ryman Division One North rivals Thurrock.
Truman landed awkwardly in 83rd minute after heading a corner clear, but valiantly carried on after a lengthy delay, due to Boro having made all their substitutions at Ship Lane.
Manager Paul Martin admits he will be gutted if the defender has broken his arm, saying: “He came back on, but there is an expectation that he might have actually broken his arm.
“That would be a massive blow for us as the boy has been sickened with injuries for over two years.”
Truman has played four times this season and has only been on the losing side once for Boro, on the opening day of the season against Needham Market.
Martin praised him for not looking out of place and is hoping to hear positive news that he hasn’t broken his arm.
“He hasn’t played football for two years,” added the Boro boss.
“He has come in the deep end at this level from when he played before and he hasn’t looked out of place one bit.
“He is a very steady player and comfortable. Touch wood that elbow isn’t broken.”
Arsenal have decisions to make on a host of first team players whose contracts are set to expire at the end of the season.
