No complaints from Romford boss
Martin: We didn’t deserve anything
Romford boss Paul Martin had few complaints after last night’s 3-2 defeat against Ryman One North rivals Waltham Abbey.
Tyler Campbell struck in injury time to clinch victory for the visitors, after Paul Kavanagh and Chris Thomas had cancelled out goals from Dave Ayres and Emmanuel Osei.
But Martin said: “We didn’t deserve anything from the game. I praised the boys after Saturday, but we were lethargic.
“The only positive is it was probably our worst performance of the season and we only lost 3-2 in the last minute.”

“It looked like an end of season game, we couldn’t clear our lines properly and can’t cope with pace.
“They had a couple of quick players and played balls over the top and we were getting punished.
“The defence has been fantastic at times this year, but you’ve got to learn when you make mistakes.”
