Selection problems for Martin

Romford’s Paul Martin is hoping late season selection problems do not hamper his side’s recent run of good form as they aim to climb the Ryman Division One North table.

Boro battled to a hard-earned point at Soham in midweek, after their home match with Needham Market fell victim to a waterlogged pitch on Saturday.

But they will be without defender James Ishmail and recent signing Jeffrey Cambell for trips to leaders Maldon tomorrow (Saturday) and high-flying Aveley on Monday.

Martin said: “James Ishmail has been the in-form player of late but he went out jogging on Sunday and rolled his ankle and it’s very possible he could be out for the rest of the season.

“Jeffrey Cambell has got some personal issues so he’s not going to be around for a while, so even though we’re going into the next game on the back of two wins and a draw we’re going to be going to Maldon and Aveley a little bit light.

“We’re struggling with a few knocks and injuries but I can’t fault anyone.

“Everyone has put in their shifts now in the last three games and played with confidence in their game and a smile on their face which we need to continue as that’s something we don’t always have.”
