Romford returned empty handed after a battling effort in their top-v-bottom clash at Ram Meadow on Saturday.

Boro travelled up the A12 into Suffolk on the back of a midweek defeat against Grays Athletic in the Velocity Trophy and fell behind after only 18 minutes.

Joe White put the home side ahead in front of a crowd of 354, with Jake Chambers Shaw doubling their advantage soon after.

The visitors had a let-off when Bury hit the crossbar and post in the same passage of play before the interval and halved the deficit just before the hour through Inesh Sumithran.
