Romford crashed to a fifth successive defeat in the Isthmian North as they suffered a heavy 4-1 defeat to Great Wakering Rovers.
Boro made a number of changes to the starting line-up with a few new faces joining ahead of the fixture while Jonathan Nzengo left the club to join Aveley.
The Rovers took an early lead in the ninth minute through Jack Stevenson but Romford levelled things as Inesh Sumiththran dispatched his effort from the penalty spot in the 17th minute.
Jake Gordon then restored the visitors lead seven minutes later as he found the back of the net.
Adalberto Pinto then made it 3-1 to the Rovers with four left in the first-half and take a strong lead into the break.
