More late pain for Romford
Abbey snatch last-gasp winner
Romford’s Ryman One North play-off hopes took a massive hit after a 3-2 home defeat against Waltham Abbey last night.
Boro looked set to earn a point as Paul Kavanagh and Chris Thomas netted to cancel out earlier goals from Abbey’s Dave Ayres and Emmanuel Osei.
Tyler Campbell wasted a great chance for the visitors when firing over an empty net, but he made up for it in stoppage time with a fine solo effort to snatch all three points.
Romford had seen Enfield Town, Wingate and Tilbury net late goals to deny them victories in the past month.

And their latest setback leaves Paul Martin’s men seven points adrift of Wingate, who moved up to fifth with a 3-0 win at Thamesmead last night, but with only one game in hand.
Boro will look to bounce back when they host third-placed Brentwood on Saturday and they still have to meet play-off rivals Maldon and Sudbury in the closing weeks of the season.
