Romford ran riot at Oakside with a six-goal display to leave Redbridge in deep trouble in Ryman North.

Substitute Joe Scott struck either side of the break to put Boro on top, with Tom Potter and Nick Reynolds sandwiching a Charlie Portway reply.

And late goals from Tom Anderson and Jamie Dicks enabled the visitors to claim their best win for some time, while sending Motormen to the bottom of the table, eight points adrift of safety.

Redbridge were looking to end a run of four successive losses, having conceded four goals in each of them, while Boro arrived on the back of a battling 3-3 draw with Bury Town, thanks to Matt Frew’s injury-time equaliser, which spared them a third defeat in a row.

The home side included AJ Adelekan and Hussainou Jaffa, while Niklas Freund, the son of former Tottenham keeper Stefan, was named on the bench.

Michael Gooch returned in goal for Romford following suspension, while Potter replaced unavailable captain Frew in the heart of their defence and Danny Cossington was included on the bench after injury.

Boro had won 3-0 when the two sides met at Ship Lane in October and Reynolds saw an early effort saved by Calum Chafer.

Paulius Ditkevicius then fed Reside Coxi Sebastfao at the other end, but his shot was well saved by Gooch.

A diving Chafer tipped a 30-yard drive from Jamie Dicks away, before Coxi Sebastfao’s dangerous cross was headed clear by James Ishmail.

And Dicks headed a good chance over, before a poor clearance fell to Joe Scott, an early substitute for Sam Coe, and he opened the scoring five minutes before half time.

Ditkevicius curled a shot wide on the stroke of half time, but the second half was only five minutes old when Scott doubled his and Romford’s tally with a second goal, tapping in from a corner.

Boro went 3-0 up just three minutes later as Potter claimed his first goal for the club, but Motormen hit back on 55 minutes through in-form Portway, only for Reynolds to restore Romford’s three-goal cushion on the hour with his seventh goal of the season.

Scott was denied his hat-trick by the woodwork, hiting the post after shooting past Chafer, but the visitors went nap with 11 minutes remaining as Anderson curled a superb shot past Chafer for his first Boro goal and their fifth of the day.

Danny Cossington missed a great chance for a sixth, scuffing his effort in the mud, before Coxi Sebastfao blasted a rare chance over for Motormen.

And Dicks completed the Romford rout with number six in the final minute, drilling home a free-kick.

Two-goal Scott tweeted: “Buzzing with the win and 2 goals today! Gutted to come off injured hope it’s not as bad as it feels! @RomfordFootball #UTB.”

And fellow goalscorer Potter also took to social media, tweeting: “Buzzing off that win and to get my first goal for @RomfordFootball hopefully more to come #UTB.”

Victory lifted Martin’s men above Witham to 18th in the table, ahead of their scheduled clash with Haringey Borough at Tilbury on Tuesday, when another success could see them climb to 16th.

But defeat sent Motormen to the bottom ahead of their Essex Senior Cup quarter-final home tie against Tilbury on the same evening, with the winners of that match earning a trip to Heybridge Swifts in the last four.
