The Crow Lane club have struggled since the turn of the year, but must improve if they are to ensure they remain in the division for another season
Romford & Gidea Park head coach Jordan Wigham revealed the ‘leaders’ at the club had a meeting last week to try and get to the bottom of the slump which has seen the Crow Lane outfit fall into a relegation battle and is confident it will bring a positive outcome.
After ending 2017 in sixth position and with a healthy advantage over the bottom four, Park have struggled for consistency in the New Year.
It means with three London Two North East games to go, they are firmly in a battle to survive even if their future is in their own hands.
The whole division had a rest last weekend and Wigham is hopeful it will help them improve their form during the final month of the campaign.
He said: “There has been a break now between games, so we have been working extremely hard in training and concentrating on one game at a time.
“We hope to have a number of players back this week, so we can build towards facing Cantabrigians on Saturday and training last time out was extremely physical and high tempo.
“We want to make sure we take our opportunities this weekend and not let the chances go a miss.
“The leaders of the side have spoken to the team and we have all agreed there is a certain standard we must play to and meet in our training sessions if we are to win these games coming up.”
After facing Cantabrigian, Park will face two more relegation rivals in the shape of Woodford and Old Cooperians, therefore Romford’s future is firmly in their own hands.
Win against sides down the bottom and they will be safe, but if they don’t they may well find themselves in trouble.
