Romford were left empty-handed at Park Lane after a game of two penalties on Saturday.

Canvey netted the only goal from the spot, while Boro were denied a strong claim for a penalty of their own deep in stoppage time.

The home side saw Sam Collins fire an early shot over, before Michael Gooch tipped another effort onto his crossbar.

Gooch denied George Sykes with another good save, before Sam Mvemba was forced off with an injury.

Connor Hammond went close for the visitors as his shot was pushed wide, before Hammond and Michael Finneran were frustrated from the resulting corner.

Jamie Dicks had a well-struck shot saved and Hammond had an attempt blocked, before Craig Jeakins swapped paces with Greg Akpele but poked the ball past the post.

The breakthrough came early in the second half when they were awarded a penalty and Sykes saw his effort just beat the dive of Gooch.

Chances were at a premium for the most part, as the two sides cancelled each other out, and Boro saw substitute Chris Taylor fire wide after good work from Jeakins, who saw another shot well saved.

Boro thought they would get a chance to draw level in the sixth minute of injury time, though, when Gooch’s long kick was misjudged by a home defender and Taylor appeared to be fouled, but their shouts for a penalty were turned down by the referee, who booked Taylor for his protests.

Romford return to Ship Lane on Wednesday to host Cheshunt.

Romford: Gooch, Olukoga, Mvemba (Burt Allen 36), Atkinson, Finneran, Dicks, Ishmail, Adebayo (Taylor 80), Akpele, Jeakins, Hammond (Nzengo). Unused subs: N Reynolds, S Reynolds.
