Romford’s Nick Reynolds was delighted to help his side pick up another point at Soham Town in their fight for survival in Bostik North – but felt it could have been an even better day for Paul Martin’s men.

Bottom club Boro extended their unbeaten run to three matches, having drawn with Sudbury and Mildenhall over the past week, as Reynolds netted in the 80th minute to cancel out Lewis Clayton’s opener for the home side in Cambridgeshire.

Both sides had been reduced to 10 men in the first half, as Boro’s new signing Kris Newby saw red along with Soham’s Will Gardner.

And Romford’s all-time leading scorer, having taken his club tally to 70, could not help but feel a little bit frustrated.

Reynolds said: “I think we were a little bit unlucky not to grab all three points. We had chances towards the end but just couldn’t compose ourselves in front of goal.

“We didn’t really kick into gear until they scored. It’s been a bit of a trait this season, we go behind before we get ourselves going.”

Romford are five points adrift of Norwich United at the foot of the table, with only seven games remaining.

They welcome Grays Athletic to Ship Lane on Easter Monday and Reynolds says the players feel they can get another positive result.

He added: “Before the weekend we set a target of at least four points over this weekend, so the Grays game is now massive.

“But there is a belief on the squad that we can get a win on Monday.”
