Velocity Trophy second round: Romford 2 Hornchurch 1

A dominant performance from Carlos Djalo saw Romford progress to the third round of the Velocity Trophy with a 2-1 derby win over Hornchurch.

Djalo contributed a goal and an assist in his side’s success over their Bostik North rivals at Ship Lane.

It was an electric opening 20 minutes with chances coming at both ends. The first of those chances came after 50 seconds when Martin Tuohy fired wide from inside the box after the ball looped over Michael Finneran’s head.

It was the home side who came even closer a couple of minutes later.

Harry Daly’s edge of the box drive took a wicked deflection and forced Urchins stopper Sam Mott into a wonderful save before Sam Mvemba volleyed wide the rebound with the goal at his mercy.

Mvemba was denied yet again on the eight-minute mark.

Jonathan Nzengo lofted ball found the run of the Boro man, but his low shot was scuppered by the onrushing Mott.

Both sides creativity seemed to dry up after that with neither team creating any clear-cut openings.

The second half started as the first finished with little goal mouth action.

That changed after 60 minutes when the home side were awarded a penalty after Daly was pulled back by Boro old boy Nathan Cooper.

Djalo stepped up and calmly slotted home to put his side ahead, but the lead lasted just six minutes.

Substitute Theo Fairweather-Johnson stretched to stab home Tobi Joseph’s cross to bring the Urchins level.

The tie was then settled with 12 minutes to play, however, when Djalo turned his marker in the box before cutting the ball back for James Ishmail to tap home the winner.

The visitors pushed for an equaliser but failed to find one as the home side held strong to win the tie.

Boro face a trip to either Folkestone Invicta or Metropolitan Police in the 3rd round.
