Romford aim to rock rivals

Boro bid for fourth straight win

Romford will go in search of a fourth successive Ryman One North win at East Thurrock tonight (7.45pm).

Alex Read’s goal was enough for Boro to beat bogey team Waltham Abbey at the weekend and lifted them back up to third place in the table.

Rocks lie just one point behind them in fifth, but Boro boss Paul Martin said: “Saturday was a big result for us.

“I think it was seven years since we’d won there, but it put us back up to third and nearer to our target.

“We’ve just got to keep doing what we’re doing. Nobody has scored two goals against us in the league and our squad is getting stronger and stronger.”

Persistent rain over the past few days and a bleak forecast has caused some concern as to whether tonight’s clash will go ahead.
