Romford ‘back on right track’
Martin pleased to end wait for win
Romford manager Paul Martin is hoping his side have put their recent troubles behind them.
Boro secured a first Ryman One North win in five games with a 2-1 success over Chatham on Saturday.
Wale Odedoyin and Jack Barry netted early goals, before Barry saw red for handball in injury time to gift the visitors a penalty.
Martin said: “To be honest, of all the games we’ve played this season, the two against Chatham have been our most comfortable wins.
“We produced our best performance of the season the first time (a 3-0 win) and we wasn’t far off the second time.
“Training has been good and the confidence is there. We’re back on schedule and have got to keep ticking over.”

Odedoyin netted his first goal since returning to the club from Ilford on 10 minutes, before Barry claimed his eighth goal of the campaign just two minutes later.
Martin added: “Wale gives us a different outlet. He’s six feet plus, strong and quick and teams can’t cope with that.
“He’s still a bit raw and rough around the egdes, but he’s playing well and with a smile on his face.
“I was disappointed to lose Jack and them getting the penalty, but we look a lot more settled.”
