Barry: We coped really well

Romford captain Jack Barry was happy with his side’s Ryman Division One North point at Soham Town last night.

Nick Reynolds put Paul Martin’s men ahead in Cambridgeshire, with his 11th goal of the season.

But the home side hit back through Luke Stanley just before the break and put Boro under increasing pressure in the second half.

Romford held on for a share of the spoils, though, to extend their unbeaten run to three matches.

Barry said: “It was a great point. We were hoping for all three but a point away from home against a team who haven’t lost for 10 games is a good result.

“It was an even game. Both teams had chances, maybe they edged it, but for a number of shots I thought we coped with it really well and defended really well, from the strikers right down to the defence.”

Boro face another difficult away day at table-topping Maldon on Saturday, before visiting former landlords Aveley on Monday.

But Barry says they can go into those games with confidence after their display at Soham, adding: “All the manager can ask of us is to give everything in the last month or so of the season.

“I think Soham thought it was going to be an easy three points for them, making us come to their place on a Tuesday night, but we shocked them by taking the lead and was looking good.

“But they got a goal back which, in fairness, their player didn’t know anything about. It just hit him and bobbled between his legs on the goalline and went in.

“So we do feel hard done by a little bit, conceding a goal like that.”
