Romford boss hopes for help
Martin looks ahead to Braintree visit
Romford boss Paul Martin is hoping for a bit of help when Conference side Braintree visit for an Essex Senior Cup tie on Tuesday.
Boro visit Potters Bar in Ryman One North tomorrow (Saturday), after suffering a disappointing 2-1 home defeat against Leiston on Sunday.
Martin said: “Braintree came and watched us on Sunday and might stick their under-10s out against us!
“You want the big teams in the Essex Senior Cup, it’s something for the fans.”

Martin also had a good luck message for FA Cup conquerors Southend Manor and local rivals Redbridge, who are bidding for a place in the first roud proper tomorrow.
He added: “All the best of luck to Terry Spillane and Redbridge and Southend Manor. I hope we get one of them through to the first round.”

Table-topping Hornchurch travel to Ryman Premier Division rivals Lewes, meanwhile.
Jimmy McFarlane’s men booked their place in the next round of the FA Trophy with a late 2-1 win at Wingate last weekend.
They were handed another away tie at Harrow in this week’s draw, but will turn their focus to preserving their lead for the time being.
Urchins hold a slender one-point advantage over Billericay, while a host of other teams are also within striking range, with games in hand.
