Romford boss feels Boro are well ahead of schedule
Martin one point away from Christmas target.
Romford boss Paul Martin insists his side are well ahead of schedule after setting a target of 20 points by Christmas.
The 3-2 win against Ware on Saturday saw Romford climb to sixth place in the table with 19 points from six games.
And with five more league outings before December 25, including Sunday’s visit of Leiston, the manager is expecting his target to be easily surpassed.
“I set a target of 20 points to get before Christmas and we are on 19, so with several games to play before then we should be well beyond that,” said Martin.

“I’d certainly be disappointed if we didn’t.”
The game against Leiston has been pushed back to Sunday because landlords Aveley are playing an FA Trophy tie against Bury Town on Saturday.

Martin is relieved his side had no midweek game, but had been hoping for an earlier kick-off on Sunday. “A couple of the lads have looked tired of late and the midweek off will have done us some good,” he said.
“Ideally we would have had an earlier kick-off. We suggested 1pm to the opposition but they didn’t get back to us so we have had to stay at 3pm.”
