Romford boss Paul Martin is on the lookout for a “fox in the box” as his side continue to struggle in front of goal.

Boro currently sit bottom of the Bostik North table with just nine points from 19 matches so far this season.

And their tally of 18 goals means they are also the lowest scorers in the division.

“We just need to find someone who is going to be a bit of a fox in the box and poach goals for us, because at the minute we’re not doing it,” said Martin.

Boro’s current top scorer is midfielder Jonathan Nzengo with seven goals and their only striker to have scored more than once all season is Chris Taylor with five.

Martin though is happy with how his side has been performing, but at the same time unsure about where the goals will come from.

“We’re playing good enough football but we just need to stick the ball in the back of the net. The down side of it is when is it going to come?” added Martin, after his side’s 2-1 home defeat to Waltham Abbey.

Romford’s only goal was scored by midfielder Craig Jeakins and their two best chances fell to centre-back Danny Cossington.

Martin has stated before, though, that he is always looking for new players to bring in.

“We’re going to try and bring some new players in and obviously players who want to move on we said we’re not going to step in their way,” he said,

Romford might have to continue with what they’ve got for now, though, as they travel away to mid table Herford Town on Saturday.
