Romford move out of drop zone with Town success

Romford captain Jack Barry was delighted with his side’s resillience as they came from behind to beat Thamesmead Town 2-1.

After an even first half the visitors took the lead through Bude Anidugbe 10 minutes after the break but Boro struck back through two Nick Reynolds goals to take the three points.

Having entered the match off the back of two heavy defeats over Easter Barry was pleased Boro were able to secure a vital triumph.

“It was a really good performance from us. We dominated the game. They had the better chances in the first half and we were lucky they didn’t go in,” said the Romford skipper.

“We started really well in the second half but they took the lead against the run of play. We showed great fighting spirit to dig in and turn it around.”

The victory sees Romford move out of the bottom three, albeit on goal difference, with two games remaining in their season.

Barry believes the Thamesmead triumph can provide the squad with a timely lift as they look to secure their Ryman North status.

“It will be a massive boost but we have to remember that we are still in the mix. It’s in our hands now though,” added the mdifielder.

“It’s down to us to keep it that way. The gap in goal difference between us and Redbridge is 10 goals so that’s like another point.

“If we’re able to get one more win in our last couple of games, that should be enough to keep us safe.”
