Bostik North: Dereham Town 2 (Forshaw 49, Hilliard 67) Romford 2 (Nzengo 12, Atkinson 73)

Romford remain bottom of the Bostik North despite earning a fine 2-2 draw away to high-flying Dereham Town.

Boro took a surprise lead in the 12th minute at Aldiss Park, with Jonathon Nzengo finding the target.

It was an advantage the Ship Lane club would take into the break, but Paul Martin’s men conceded an equaliser to Jamie Forshaw four minutes into the second half.

Toby Hilliard then fired the Magpies in front in the 67th minute, with the match seemingly going to form.

However, just six minutes later, Hugo Atkinson restored parity for Romford as they took a point on the long trip to Norfolk.

Boro are next in action on Saturday when they entertain Aveley, looking to end a run of 13 league games without a win.

Dereham: Pride, Taylor, Anema, Hinton, Eastoe-Smith, Linford (Burgers 46), Logan, Murphy, Jarvis, Forshaw, Beaumont (Hilliard 65).

Subs: Dodden, Ebbage, Crisp.

Romford: S Reynolds, Olukoga, Mvemba, Cossington, Finneran, Ishmail, Kelly, Nzengo, Djalo, Giwa, Hammond (Atkinson 66).

Subs: McGeorge, Taylor, N Reynolds.
