Martin wants better
Trophy test for Boro
ROMFORD boss Paul Martin is hoping his side can find some of their better form when they travel to Waltham Forest for an FA Trophy tie tomorrow.
Boro head back to Cricklefield for the second time in a week, having earned a 1-1 draw in Ryman One North last Saturday.
Have made several changes for their midweek league cup clash with Tilbury, and seen Boro bow out with a 2-1 defeat, Martin said: “It was unfortunate, but I’m not too fussed really.
“Our match sharpness doesn’t seem to be there at the moment and we’ve had a couple of dull games to be honest. But we’ve had a good start to the season really, so I can’t complain.”
Boro fell behind against struggling Forest last weekend, before Manzi Mbala rescued a point and Martin is expecting another close encounter, with �2,200 in prize money up for grabs.
He added: “They caused us problems here and there and I don’t expect them to give anything away. You can’t underestimate any team in this league this year.
