Boro are now six points adrift at the bottom of the table after being held by the Hall

Romford manager Paul Martin was upset his team dropped further back from safety in the Bostik North following a 1-1 draw at home to Mildenhall Town.

Boro are now six points adrift of safety following the stalemate after fellow battlers Norwich United beat Canvey Island 4-3.

Dan Cossington opened the scoring for the hosts in the 38th minute at Ship Lane on Saturday, but the Hall restored parity three minutes later through Jake Kerins.

The draw means Romford have now gone 17 league games without a win, and Martin was ambivalent about the latest result.

“I have mixed emotions about the game. It’s another point and we played OK, but the result wasn’t good enough, especially with Norwich beating Canvey and moving another two points ahead of us,” he said.

Romford would have been delighted when Cossington opened the scoring towards the end of the first half, ending a run of three league matches in which they had conceded the first goal.

To concede just three minutes later, though, disappointed Martin, particularly the manner in which the equaliser for Mildenhall was scored.

“We scored from a corner for the first time this season, but before we did, Mildenhall had six and we dealt with them all very well,” added the Boro boss.

“The seventh corner they had was a mishit, which caused a bit of confusion in the box and then they scored.

“Any ball into the box is always dangerous, but sometimes the ones which are mishit are a little more dangerous.”
