Martin: I’ve got no complaints

Romford boss in realistic mood

Romford manager Paul Martin admitted his side deserved nothing from their Ryman One North clash with Ilford.

Beaten 3-1 at home by play-off chasing Sudbury at the weekend, Boro slumped to a 3-2 defeat against the lowly Foxes on Monday.

It was a seventh defeat in eight for Martin’s men, but he said: “I’ve got no complaints.

“Ilford played us off the park. How they fought and the spirit they showed is how we were last year.

“There’s not been many games this season when we’ve been beaten properly, but they scored three good goals.

“Although we lost 3-2, we probably deserved to lose 3-1 or 3-0.”

Romford end their campaign with a home game against Thamesmead on Saturday, but can now finish no higher than 11th, having harboured hopes of a play-off place just a few weeks ago.

Martin added: “We were still in with a shout of the play-offs at the start of April, so we’ve done our job.

“But you can see the players are frustrated with it.”
