But they visit an improving Sudbury side, who have won at Heybridge and Maldon over the past seven days.
Romford edged past lowly Great Wakering last weekend, thanks to a solitary goal from captain Paul Clayton, but a much-changed side bowed out of the Essex Senior Cup in midweek, losing 3-0 to Premier Division side Canvey.

But Adrian Clifton is back at the club after failing to complete a move to Premier Division leaders Billericay.
