Romford ready for Redbridge
Martin expects Motormen test
Romford boss Paul Martin expects a tough test at Ryman Division One North rivals Redbridge.
But he is hoping his side can extend their unbeaten run to eight games to end 2011 on a high.
Boro came from behind to beat Grays on Boxing Day, moving up to ninth.
And Martin is ready for another battle against a Motormen side who reached the second round of the FA Cup this season.

“It won’t be pretty. The pitch will be heavy and it will be about who is up for it more.
“Our training ground has been shut so we haven’t trained for two weeks, but the boys have had a bit of rest.”
Jamie Dicks returns to the squad after a one-game suspension and Martin also hopes to have Chris Barry available after illness.
