Bostik North: Romford 1 (Reynolds 53) Brentwood Town 4 (Hughes 7, 73, 90, Stokes 23)
Romford endured an eighth straight Bostik North game without a win after going down 4-1 at home to Brentwood Town.
Boro suffered a poor start against the Blues as Charlee Hughes fired the visitors ahead in just the seventh minute.
Town added to their lead 16 minutes later when Tony Stokes netted as Paul Martin’s men trailed by two at the break.
The Rookery Hill club were dealt a further blow in the 51st minute when Danny Cossington was sent off after picking up a second booking.
Despite being a man light, Romford pulled one back two minutes later when Nick Reynolds found the target.
However, Hughes was able to add his second of the match in the 73rd minute to put Brentwood back in control.
Town then had a man sent off themselves as former Boro midfielder Ryan Mallett was shown a straight red card.
Hughes was able to complete his hat-trick in stoppage time and leave Martin’s men to reflect on another disappointing league outing.
