Striker hails latest success in survival fight

Romford striker Nick Reynolds expressed his delight after netting the only goal of their Ryman North clash at Cheshunt at the weekend.

Reynolds, making his 150th appearance for the club, struck eight minutes before the break to help Boro bank three vital points in their battle against relegation.

And his latest effort came just a week after a vital brace for Paul Martin’s men in a 2-1 win over Thamesmead.

He said: “It’s been a great couple of weeks for the team. I was really proud of the boys as I thought we dictated the whole game.

“In the first half we got at Cheshunt and caused them a few problems and going in at half time 1-0 up was what we deserved.

“In the second half I think we killed the game off, did things at our pace and played the way we wanted to.

“They had a 10/15-minute spell like every team will do in a game, but we dealt with them really well and i don’t think they caused us any major problems.”

A second successive victory leaves Boro one point above the drop zone, following Barkingside’s win over basement boys Burnham.

Martin’s men welcome Ware to Ship Lane on the final day of the season, while their rivals visit Tilbury, and Reynolds wants another all-round team performance.

He added: “It was just a game where everyone did their jobs pretty well. The defence kept a clean sheet and we managed to grab one goal and at the end of the day winning a football game can be that simple!

“The fans were amazing yet again. We could hear them cheering us on all game, just like they have all season.

“It’s really nice to give something back to them, considering this season hasn’t been the best compared to the last two.”
