Something has to give in this meeting of two in-form teams.
Boro are unbeaten in their last six games in Ryman Division One North and the FA Cup, but Manor are unbeaten as well and top of the Essex Senior League.
Romford manager Paul Martin admits the �3,000 prize money would be vital for the club and would like to see his side tighten up a bit, after a nerve-jangling 5-4 win at Waltham Abbey in midweek.
