Barry passed fit for Abbey visitry

Romford captain Jack Barry is glad to be back from injury and is looking to help his side finish as high in the table as they possibly can.

Boro will play Waltham Abbey at Ship Lane tonight (Thursday) and Barry has been passed as fit, after being forced out of action recently with a hamstring injury.

He said: “The hamstring is feeling a lot better, I saw the physio and we worked on it and I had a little fitness test and I didn’t pull up which is a good sign.

“So I passed and I’m in the squad which is good news. After missing two games I just want to get back on the pitch and start playing again.”

Boro let a two-goal lead slip to draw with Waltham Forest in Barry’s absence on Saturday and he expects this evening’s clash to be tough, with Abbey winning 1-0 at Aveley last night.

He added: “It will be another tough game against Waltham Abbey but I am positive we will come away with the three points.

“Seeing that they are playing catch up in the league and will have already played two games this week, they will have a few tired legs and that will work in our favour. Despite that, we can’t take the game lightly by any means.”

In-form Romford, unbeaten in six matches, complete their campaign with a trip to Brentwood on Saturday and Barry wants them to finish on a high.

He said: “We can go eighth with a win tonight and that will be fantastic because we have already beaten our points total from last season.

“We plan on beating our league position from last season too. We want to end the season on a high.”
