Romford v Tilbury

Unbeaten in their last five league matches, Boro welcome fifth-placed Dockers to Mill Field in their last outing before Christmas.

New loan signing Ellis Skidmore put Paul Martin’s men 2-0 up after only seven minutes at Sudbury last weekend, before the hosts hit back to earn a draw.

Martin also gave a debut to young Kane Messenger, who had been playing local football and was used as a 65th-minute substitute for Jack Barry.

Abs Seymour misses this game due to suspension and Chris Barry is unavailable, but Martin is hoping his squad can secure the win which will take them through the 30-point barrier and keep them on the fringes of the play-off race.
