But they reverted to type at home in midweek, going down 1-0 to Hendon and have taken just 11 points from a possible 27 at Bridge Avenue.

Ryman Division 1N
Romford v Great Wakering Rovers
Boro suffered a triple blow this week.
Manager Paul Martin was pleased enough with a hard-earned point from a goalless draw against Brentwood.
But he lost top scorer Kurt Smith to a broken fibia at Mill Field, then heard Nick Reynolds had broken two fingers later that night.
To top it off, Adrian Clifton has left to join Premier Division leaders Billericay.
“That’s three very good players gone in the space of 48 hours,” moaned Martin, who saw a mixed XI lost 4-3 at Billericay in a friendly on Wednesday.
Chris Richardson hit a hat-trick for Boro and could find himself asked to lead the line this weekend.
