Martin pleased with points, not performance

Romford manager Paul Martin felt his side were fortunate to win at Cheshunt on Saturday.

Paul Kavanagh, Toran Senghore and debutant Perry Burns were on target in a 3-2 success at Theobalds Lane, as Boro maintained their Ryman One North play-off push.

But Martin said: “I was pleased with the three points, but not the performance.

“I don’t think we deserved anything. They were far better and if they had taken their chances, it would’ve been different.

“We’ve been a bit slow the last two games after a long break, but I’ve got to be happy with six points.”

Romford are scheduled to visit Tilbury tomorrow night, but with heavy rain falling across the county today and Aveley’s clash against Lowestoft postponed this morning, the match is already in doubt.

Martin added: “Tilbury played at home on Saturday, so whether they can play two on the spin on their pitch in this weather I don’t know.

“And we’re meant to be going to Brentwood on Saturday, and they haven’t been playing many at their place, so it could be a long week off again.”
