Romford had to settle for just a point against fellow strugglers Mildenhall at Ship Lane.

Boro got their noses in front late in the first half, but were soon pegged back and neither side could find a winner during the second half.

Manager Paul Martin made seven changes from the midweek Velocity Trophy tie at Met Police, with Teddy Perkins, Billy Coyne and Bryan Kyungu all coming in for their debuts, while Sam Mvemba and Jonathan Nzengo came into the side with Harry Daly and Sonny Shilling.

And Boro opened the scoring through defender Danny Cossington, who claimed only his third goal for the club with a fine header on 39 minutes.

Their joy was shortlived as the visitors were back on terms just two minutes later, though, when a corner was missed by everyone apart from Jake Kerrins, who finally netted.

Mildenhall made two changes in the early part of the second half, while goalscorer Kerrins was shown a yellow card.

And Martin made his first changes midway through the half, replacing Shilling with Craig Jeakins, who had netted in the recent home defeat against Waltham Abbey, and sending Chris Taylor on for Coyne.

James Ishmail – who has shown a knack for scoring late goals in the past – replaced Kyungu for the final seven minutes and Mildenhall were reduced to 10 men when Kerrins was given his marching orders for a second bookable offence.

But Boro could not make them pay during stoppage time as honours finished even.

Romford: S Reynolds, Olukoga, Mvemba, Cossington, Perkins, Coyne (Taylor 66), Kyungu (Ishmail 83), Kelly, Daly, Shilling (Jeakins 66), Nzengo. Unused subs: Atkinson, Hammond.

Attendance: 102.
