Romford went unrewarded in their last outing before Christmas after defeat at Tilbury.
Chadfields has not been the happiest of hunting grounds for manager Paul Martin over the years and so it was once more as Dockers claimed the points with three unanswered goals.
Boro made the short trip on a rare high, following their 4-2 win at fellow strugglers Cheshunt in midweek, which ended a long 17-game wait for league success.
But only four minutes had been played when Toby Aromolaran put the Dockers in front.
They looked the better side for the rest of the first half, but lacked a cutting edge in front of goal.
And they were made to pay just past the hour mark when Aromolaran grabbed his and Tilbury’s second goal of the afternoon.
The home side enjoyed the better of things after that, with Adam Vyse making it 3-0 on 70 minutes.
And the only consolation for bottom club Boro was the news that Cheshunt had suffered a 7-1 thrashing at the hands of Canvey Island.
Martin’s men are three points adrift of the Ambers, with a game in hand, and are set to return to Ship Lane to host leaders Hornchurch on Wednesday.
