Romford were left three points adrift at the bottom of the table after losing to Potters Bar.

Buoyed by wins over Hornchurch and Maldon in the Velocity Trophy and Essex Senior Cup over the previous week, Boro travelled around the M25 in good spirits.

But they returned empty-handed after Eoin Casey netted in each half for the home side, before Jonathan Nzengo’s reply.

Casey opened the scoring just past the half-hour mark and doubled Potters Bar’s lead on the hour.

Nzengo gave the visitors hope when he halved the deficit 17 minutes from time, but despite sending forwards Ola Giwa and Nick Reynolds on for James Ishamil and Michael Finneran in the closing minutes, Boro boss Paul Martin saw his side slip to their 10th defeat in 14 matches this season.

Romford welcome high-flying Haringey Borough to Ship Lane on Wednesday, for what will be Martin’s 500th match in charge of the club.

Romford: Gooch, Olukoga, Atkinson, Cossington, Finneran (N Reynolds 85), Ishmail (Giwa 81), Kelly, Nzengo, Djalo, Daly, Mvemba (Hammond 62). Unused subs: Taylor, S Reynolds.

Attendance: 123.
