Romford boss realistic about defeats

Martin: We can’t moan

Romford’s Paul Martin was in philosophical mood after seeing his side lose to Redbridge and Thamesmead over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Boro were beaten 3-0 by Motormen on New Year’s Eve, then lost to the only goal of Monday’s Ryman One North game at Mill Field.

The double setback saw Boro slip down the table, but Martin said: “I can’t complain about Redbridge. They were better than us on the day and we got too involved with the referee.

“I’m not moaning about the referee because we got beat, but he lost control of the game early.

“We could’ve been down to 10 men after five minutes, but then we could’ve had a couple of penalties. We weren’t good enough.

“The Thamesmead game was a stalemate and it was always going to be a scrappy goal to win it. My defence was top drawer, but it was a very below-par game.”
