Romford boss has few complaints
Point deserved from 4-4 draw
Romford boss Paul Martin had few complaints this week about his side’s 4-4 draw with Waltham Forest.
Martin saw his side move two goals ahead at two different stages in the match, but then fall behind before completing the scoring – and missing a late penalty.
He said: “It was quite an enjoyable to game to be involved in. It could’ve been 6-3 or 7-3 to them. It was one of those games.
“But I would’ve taken one point away from home before the game. They’re a good side this year and we couldn’t deal with their pace.

“We started really sharp, considering we had a few missing, but they got fired up and scored three good goals. We didn’t make mistakes for the goals.”
Forest turned a 3-1 deficit into a 4-3 lead in the space of just nine second-half minutes, but Boro had the final say thanks to a second goal of the game from Nick Reynolds.

Martin added: “At 4-3 down, you wanted to see our response and we did well, which is another positive.
“Missing a penalty to win it as well, the game had everything bar a sending-off. The referee let the game flow and it was a good game. We’ve got no arguments.
“We had to take Paul White off at half-time as he was ill and when you change a centre-back it shakes the team up a bit and we wobbled. To be 3-1 up (and not win) is disappointing.”
