Forward says recent unbeaten run has been packed full of Boro characteristics

Striker Nick Reynolds is confident Romford can continue their strong recent form when they entertain Bury Town in the Ryman North at the weekend.

Boro are unbeaten in their last four games, but needed two stoppage time goals to draw 3-3 at home to Heybridge Swifts last weekend and keep that run going.

All looked well for the Ship Lane club in the third minute when debutant David Fallah found the net, but by the 90th minute the hosts were 3-1 down.

Ryan Mallett struck in the 92nd minute with what looked like a consolation strike before James Ishmail completed a stunning Boro comeback three minutes later.

It was a tremendous show of resilience from Romford to keep fighting until the end, and Reynolds expects a similar mentality against the Blues tomorrow (Saturday).

“I’m looking forward to the Bury game and hopefully we can keep working hard and grinding out some results,” said Reynolds.

“The last month or so has had an old Romford feel about it, we haven’t been playing that great, but we have worked hard and ground out some decent results.”

Romford’s recent run of form has seen Paul Martin’s men move to within a point of the top half of the Ryman North.

Boro are now just five points adrift of Bury too, with the Blues having harboured hopes of a promotion push this season and sat second in October.

It’s been a remarkable turnaround for the Ship Lane club since then to close the gap to Town.

And Reynolds admits overhauling Bury will be superb motivation for the final six games of the season.

“If we manage to get three points Saturday we have a chance of catching them,” added Romford’s record scorer.

“If anyone said to me you will be close to Bury at this stage of the season, I would have take that all day long.”
