James Ishmail’s last-minute goal earned Romford a deserved point from their long Tuesday night trip to Norfolk.

And that came after Boro manager Paul Martin had brought himself off the bench to make his first-team debut as a late substitute for Connor Hammond.

The visitors, having been knocked out of the FA Trophy by Hastings United on Sunday, found themselves behind after only 15 minutes as Tim Henery netted from the penalty spot.

And they had claims of their own turned down soon after, which saw Vlad Sighiartau booked for dissent.

Nick Reynolds put a close-range chance wide for Boro, who also had an effort ruled out for a foul on Norwich keeper Andy Wilton before the interval.

Stephen Reynolds had little to do in the Romford goal, making one routine save and coming off his line quickly to clear, and Sighiartau made way for Ben Clarke around the hour mark.

Martin joined the action with three minutes of normal time remaining, but Boro looked set to make the long trip home empty-handed when Reynolds saw a shot spilled by Wilton and Ishmail pounced on the loose ball to smash home the rebound.

The point ensured Romford remained above bottom club Norwich at the foot of the table, ahead of their trip to Sudbury on Saturday.

Romford: S Reynolds, Olukoga, Nzengo, Cossington, Finneran, Ishmail, Brown, Sighiartau (Clarke 61), N Reynolds, Akpele, Hammond (Martin 87). Unused sub: Lord.
