Martin seeking reinforcements

Despite a poor run of form and results in recent weeks, Romford manager Paul Martin still believes his side could secure a top-10 spot in Ryman Division One North — but he is looking to freshen up his squad for the closing stages of the season.

Boro have picked up a paltry six points from their last nine games, but still find themselves comfortable in 14th place heading into their home clash with an in-form side Cheshunt at Ship Lane tomorrow (Saturday).

Martin feels things have gotten a little bit stale of late and he has been on the look-out to bring some new players into the squad in the hope of finding some form and turning results around.

The Boro boss had a look at several options during a friendly with Billericay on Monday, where his side lost out 3-1, but he has been able to draft in attacking midfielder Tyler Christian-Law from Wingate for the game against the Ambers.
