Romford captain Jack Barry was pleased to see his side maintain their interest in this year’s FA Cup competition after a hard-fought draw with Kingstonian.

The scoreline remained blank in the second qualifying round tie at Ship Lane, with the Ryman Premier Division K’s hitting the woodwork three times.

Barry lifted a good chance over for Ryman North Boro and felt it had been a good contest, saying: “I thought we put in a really good team performance again, against another team from a league above.

“We had chances as well, but they also had some chances. I don’t think they threatened our goal that much and tested our keeper.

“We held our own and we will be looking to do the same on in the replay.

“We know it will be an even harder test at their place, but we are more than up for the challenge.”

Boro head to Kingsmeadow tomorrow looking to cause another upset, having knocked Ryman Premier Division Bury Town out in the previous round.

Tom Richardson and Nick Reynolds are set to come back into the squad, having missed Saturday’s stalemate, and Barry added: “It will be a lovely surface so hopefully we can settle early into the game and push on from there.

“The most important thing is we are still in the hat for the next round, so we have every chance of progressing to the next round.”
