Boro have not scored in each of their last four league games ahead of hosting Ambers

Romford will want to end their long wait for a Bostik North goal when they host Cheshunt on Wednesday, but boss Paul Martin still has full faith in his side’s attacking ability.

Boro have not scored in each of their last four games in the league, including a 1-0 loss at Canvey Island on Saturday.

Jamie Dicks scored Romford’s last league goal at Hornchurch on August 28, but Martin feels that once Boro find the net again, they will soon be back into their rhythm.

“All we need is one goal and I’m sure they will start to flow after that. No matter how it goes in, be it off a shin or a shoulder or whatever, when one goes in, it will help,” he said.

“We are creating chances, we’re just not taking them. I have three forwards and between them they have two goals.

“It has been a tough start, though. We’ve had eight games and played the current top six in that time.”

Ahead of Wednesday’s game, Romford are just one place below Cheshunt in 23rd, with only goal difference separating the sides.

However, Martin feels that the Ambers are currently in a false position and will soon show the quality they possess, though hopes that does not happen at Ship Lane.

“Cheshunt should be in the top six, not the bottom three and they are too good to be where they are currently,” he added.

“Like us, they’re not getting the luck at the minute because of where we both are, so it could well be another game decided by the one goal.”
