Martin relishing Mill Field trip
Romford’s Paul Martin is hoping his side complete a league double as they take on former landlords Aveley tonight (Friday).
Boro returned from a 17-day break to beat Cheshunt 3-2 in Ryman One North midweek, but Martin felt it could have been more comfortable.
He said: “I would’ve kicked myself if we had thrown it away.
“We should’ve been out of sight and they could’ve had no complaints if we had won 5-2 or 6-2.
You may also want to watch:
“It could’ve been 3-0 or 4-0 by half-time but we were almost made to pay for a couple of individual mistakes again.”
A second successive win for Boro, following their January 12 success over Ware, lifted them up to tenth, but Millers go into tonight’s game on the back of four straight wins.
- 1 Liverpool Street to Shenfield line suspended as person hit by train
- 2 'Important' ATMs removed from Romford shopping mall
- 3 Brentwood deaths: Teen charged with double murder to appear in court
- 4 Upminster chef named best in the country with award
- 5 East London police officer charged with rape
- 6 End 8am scramble to secure GP appointments, watchdog warns
- 7 ATMs to be reinstalled in shopping mall in 'more prominent location'
- 8 Brentwood Halloween event cancelled following tragic deaths
- 9 Post delays reported in Harold Hill as Royal Mail confirms staff shortages
- 10 Romford man gets community order for causing pensioner's crash death
Martin was quick to point out they were on a similar run when Romford beat them at Ship Lane in December.
“They will be up for it as well and fancy their chances,” he added.
“They are on a good run of form, but it was the same when we played and beat them last time. Hopefully it can happen again and we can do the double.”
If tonight’s match falls foul of the weather, the teams will try again tomorrow (Saturday).
