Romford boss wants Christmas boost
Boro host Tilbury before festive spell
All Romford manager Paul Martin wants for Christmas is for his side to beat Tilbury tomorrow (Saturday).
Boro welcome Dockers to Mill Field, after a morale-boosting 2-2 draw at Sudbury last weekend.
And Martin is asking his men to produce a win to keep their play-off hopes alive.
He said: “If we can beat Tilbury we’ll have 30 points for Christmas and will still be right in there.

“Normally I would have the hump at throwing a 2-0 lead away, but Sudbury are one of the strongest sides we’ve played this season and we would’ve been happy with a point beforehand.
“We dominated the first half and they dominated the second half. They’ve got good players and a good budget, so should be up where they are.

“All four goals were decent goals, to be fair, but we’re five unbeaten now and we’ve done alright.
“It’s tight and we’ve had a hard couple of months, losing our strikers (Kurt Smith and Nick Reynolds).
“It will be the end of January before I have either of them available again so we’ve got to keep Ellis (Skidmore) fit.
“He’s a nice lad and is here to enjoy his football and we hope he can keep doing what he did on Saturday.”
