Martin: If only this run had come earlier
Romford go into tomorrow’s match with Harlow full of confidence, but boss Paul Martin is frustrated his side’s run of form did not come earlier in the season.
Boro have picked up 14 points out of a possible 24, with only two defeats since the end of February.
They bounced back from a home loss against table-topping Grays, in front of a 277-strong crowd, to beat Tilbury for the first time in the Ryman League with a late goal by debutant Andre Gumbs on Monday.
And Martin said: “There is a first time for everything and it was nice to finally beat Tilbury for the first time.

“We actually got a bit of luck for the first time this season when there was a shout for handball against Jack Barry on the line.
“We went in front and then they equalised late on and I thought ‘here we go again’ but then we got the free-kick and it was great for Andre.

“The pitch wasn’t the greatest to play football on, but we have been in good form of late and confidence is at an all-time high going into the next two games.
“If this run had come earlier we could’ve been looking at play-offs, but we’ll be happy with a good end to the season.”
