Premier Division

Carshalton v Hornchurch

Brentwood v Romford

Successive away wins at Heybridge and Cheshunt – both by a 3-2 scoreline – have kept Boro firmly in the promotion race.

And their success this season is turning out to be a real squad effort, with the six goals scored in those two matches shared between five different players.
