Ryman Div 1N: Waltham Abbey 0 Romford 1

Tom Richardson’s last-minute goal lifted 10-man Romford to a much-needed win at Capershotts last night.

Matt Toms was sent off in the 55th minute, but the visitors dug in and claimed all three points as Richardson struck with a wonderful finish as he took a pass from Jamie Dicks and chipped it over the head of Abbey keeper Ben Barnes.

Manager Paul Martin had wanted to see a response after his side’s disappointing derby defeat at Brentwood two nights earlier and handed Chris Barry a place in the starting line-up, following his return to the club.

Toms received his marching orders after an incident that followed a bad challenge on teammate Abs Seymour.

But the visitors rolled up their sleeves and battled to a victory that lifts them to 13th place in the table, with games in hand on all but two of the teams above them.

Boro are just four points short of Martin’s target of 45 and will look to make it back-to-back wins when they welcome struggling Wroxham to Ship Lane tomorrow, before a tough trip to high-flying Soham Town Rangers on Monday.

Waltham Abbey: Barnes, Sargent, Daveney, Attard, Bedford, Densham, Bruno, Bristow, Coley, Russell, Pearman (Peagram 71). Unused subs: Samuels, Barnes, Scott, Gill.

Romford: Omand, Toms, Oates, J Barry, Truman, Clayton, Ishmail, Seymour, Reynolds (Hart 81), Richardson, C Barry (Dicks 81). Unused subs: Woodward, Imbert.
