Romford boss plotting next assignment

Romford boss Paul Martin is relishing tomorrow’s clash with Ryman Division One North leaders Maldon at Ship Lane.

Boro battled to a goalless draw at Waltham Forest on Saturday, while Maldon maintained their four-point lead at the top of the table with a 4-2 victory at Tilbury.

Maldon are unbeaten in all 13 league games they have played so far this season, but Martin said: “Someone has got to beat them soon and hopefully it is us.

“I haven’t seen them play yet so I’m going in blind. But I know a bit about them.

“They’ve probably not watched us, but I’m not too concerned. We’ll just get on with our game.

“Jamie Guy has been scoring goals for fun for them, so we’ve got to try and keep him quiet and nick a winner. We’re looking forward to it.”

Boro returned from an enforced two-week break to pick up a point at Cricklefield at the weekend, making it 16 from a possible 21 since the start of October.

And Martin, who signed Jamie Dicks, Ben Jones and Billy Hunt late last week, added: “The pitch wasn’t brilliant, but we knew that would be the case.

“You’ve got to be happy with a point away from home, especially with the form they have been in.

“But I was a little disappointed we didn’t get all three points. We probably had the better chances.”
