Boro sit just one point above drop

Romford boss Paul Martin believes his side’s results in their last two games will give them the lift required to beat Wroxham on Wednesday.

Boro followed up a 3-1 win over Chatham Town with a 4-4 draw away to Aveley at the weekend to move one point clear of the relegation zone.

The results followed a run of four losses in a row and Martin is hopeful his side can keep up their good form.

“We’re unbeaten in two’s a long time since I’ve been able to say that,” said Martin.

“It’s always going to give you confidence when you don’t lose game. I’m happy at the minute and I think the boys are happy too.”

Before their change in fortunes the Ship Lane outfit endured a spell where they collected just 11 points from a possible 54.

Martin believes the side’s upturn in results has coincided with a change of playing staff at Romford.

“We’ve had to freshen up and bring a lot of new players in. We’ve lost a lot of faces recently so it was going to take time to rebuild,” added Martin.

“Hopefully the boys are confident again. Wroxham will be a tough game. We need six points from our next three games and then I think we’ll be OK.”
