Martin: It was a great result

Romford manager Paul Martin was delighted to see his side romp to a 5-2 win over Sudbury in midweek.

Tom Richardson’s hat-trick put them three goals up inside 22 minutes and further goals from Nick Reynolds and Jamie Dicks enabled Boro to complete a double over the Suffolk, following their 6-3 success in the away meeting.

Martin said: “I am delighted and especially at home because we haven’t won here for a long time.

“Our home record has not been brilliant this season so this is a great result, the only disappointing thing was conceded two goals.

“The game is over at 3-0, then they scored that early goal, and it was a bit squeaky because we have been in those situations over the years. But all credit to the boys, they killed the game off.”

Romford welcome leaders Grays to Ship Lane today before a trip to Tilbury on Easter Monday.

And Martin insists his team will go into those fixtures with massive confidence.

“Massive confidence, hopefully there are no knocks from where we haven’t trained,” he added.

“There will be a few tired legs and then we go to Tilbury on Monday. It’s not an easy month coming up.

“All we are going to do is say to them like we have done now, nine games left, go out there with a smile on our faces, relax on the ball and enjoy it and we’ll see where we finish at the end of the season.”
