Romford boss reveals frustration
Martin moved by Maldon mishap
Romford manager Paul Martin admitted he was disappointed with his side’s display in their Ryman One North defeat at Maldon.
Boro slipped to a 2-0 defeat after Paul Kavanagh had missed a penalty for the visitors and remain five points short of Martin’s 60-point target.
They have three games left to play, against Sudbury, Ilford and Thamesmead and Martin said: “The penalty changed the game a bit.
“There were very few chances in the game. I think both sides had three each, but they scored two scrappy goals and we didn’t take our chances, which makes a difference.

“Kav was disappointed but I said to him ‘unfortunately these things happen in football’. I think I’ve only seen him miss two in 16 years!”
It was a fifth defeat in six for Romford, but Martin wants his men to rouse themselves for a big finish to the campaign.

“I was a little disappointed with our performance,” he said.
“Junior [Diantombe] had another good game but there were a few others who had played well last Tuesday [in 3-1 win over Redbridge] who didn’t play as well on Saturday.
“You can’t expect them to be brilliant all the time, but I want those 60 points. We can still play a part in who gets into the play-offs and rock the boat.”
