Romford boss to rotate

Martin makes changes for Aveley test

Romford manager Paul Martin is hoping his players avoid injury against Aveley in the Ryman League cup tonight, with their FA Trophy tie at Boreham Wood coming up on Saturday.

Boro eased to a 5-1 win over Waltham Forest in the league last weekend and Martin will shuffle his pack as he looks to get the best out of his squad.

He said: “I’ve got the headache of making my selection, but still think my squad is strong enough.

“We left a couple out at the weekend, to give them the day off and keep fresh, and we’ll do the same in midweek to make sure everyone’s fit for Saturday.

“Kurt [Smith] and Alex [Read] will probably be up front as both are cup-tied on Saturday. Alex is in great form, so we’ll still be quite strong in attack.

“Toran [Senghore] might have a little run out and Danny Rafis as well. But we’ll probably rest the back line and give the likes of Jack Barry and Kevin Neville a run out. We don’t want to throw a derby match away.”
