Romford boss Dan Spinks says the buzz around the club at the minute is driving them on to even more glory.

They will tackle North Greenford United next week in the FA Vase quarter-final but for now their focus is solely on the Essex Senior League, and that goal is providing plenty more smiles.

Remi Sutton and Hassan Nalbant scored as fellow play-off chasers, Sporting Bengal United, were beaten 2-1 on Saturday while it was Finley Dorrell and Darren Phillips who ensured a 2-0 win at Takeley on Tuesday evening.

Those results have moved Romford second in the table, three points ahead of Woodford Town although having played a game more, and while leaders Tilbury on closing in on the title, Boro are seven points ahead of the pack chasing to get into the play-off places.

He said: "I try and reiterate before every game that the league was our priority, this is what we started out for. 

"The Vase is a bonus, the priority was the league and it is now to cement our place in the play-offs, which we are going about quite nicely at the moment. 

"Both were really good battles and Saturday was a real test. 

"I'm surprised the game was on. Both sides wanted that and there were no complaints but it wouldn’t have been on after wards. 

"The boys are working hard and battling well. The buzz is really good at the moment. 

"We have another tough game on Saturday and Barking and flying at the moment.

"The dressing room is so good at the moment that even in the tight games we just seem to be coming out on top.  

"We've got that buzz and that expectation and winning breeds winning." 

The latest clash did come at some cost though.

Spinks said: "We had a little bit of a blow against Takeley in that we finished the game with basically none of our front four. 

"Hassan was injured before we started, Charlie Morris had to come off at half time. Finlay, come off five minutes later and Mikey Faulkner came off after that. 

"They are going to be doubts for Saturday which will be a blow but we've got a deep squad and the points are on the board. 

"And injuries occur but they also bring opportunities. The boys who come in against Takeley and came on at half time were excellent. They did everything we asked of them. 

"I can't question any of the squad at the moment."
