Romford manager Paul Martin is not pleased to have suffered their second heavy defeat in the space of a few days as they went down at Parkside on Saturday.

Beaten 6-0 at home by leaders Hornchurch on Wednesday, Boro were put to the sword by their neighbours as Alex Teniola hit a hat-trick for the hosts.

The club sit second from bottom in the Bostik North and are just one point ahead of basement club Cheshunt after falling to their fourth consecutive defeat.

“It was no better than the Hornchurch game in all fairness,” Martin said.

“We conceded four goals from set pieces and another forward scored a hat-trick against us.

“That’s two different forwards scoring hat-tricks in two different games against us.”

Martin did however praise long-serving striker Nick Reynolds for the impact he made off the bench in the 48th minute.

“The only positive to come out of the match was when we brought Nick Reynolds on as at 4-1 down we had a chance of probably bringing it back to 4-4.

“He didn’t miss those chances either the keeper pulled off a couple of very good saves and we hit the post.

“They probably had 95 per cent of the possession that day but we brought Nick on and he nearly turned the game around but they went and got the fifth goal and won it comfortably in the end.”

The club are expected to part company with a few players and should be announcing some signings this week as Martin looks to fix the current form.

Striker Luke Hornsey played 48 minutes in the match but has since left the club to join Essex Senior League outfit Hullbridge Sports.

Boro will return to Essex Senior Cup action when they make the trip to Bostik Premier Division league leaders Billericay Town in the semi-final tomorrow evening.
