Three second half goals gave Aveley a great win against local rivals Romford at Ship Lane.

This was during Aveley's eleven consecutive winning run. Before the game Romford stated they wanted to put an end to our good run of form, however the Millers were the more clinical team throughout the 90 minutes.

The first half was the first to half to forget as nothing really of note happened.

But the game took off in the second half as the Millers took the lead.

After Teddy Nesbitt was fouled Billy Coyne took the free kick and crossed it straight at Ottley, but the pace of it made him (Otey) flick it up and towards his own goal, Junior Baker headed it across to the feet of Spencer Harrison who smashed it into the goal. 1-0 Aveley.

The response was almost instant, Romford caught the Millers napping, five Boro players attacked against three Aveley defenders. Ryan Imbert played in Tom Richardson who slid the ball cooly past the approaching James Marrable to equalise for Romford. Romford 1-1 Aveley.

The Millers had three consecutive corners as Teddy Nesbitt the third, the corner went to the back post where Junior Baker crashed in his header into the back of the net to put Aveley into the lead. Romford 1-2 Aveley.

Romford tried their hardest to grab the equaliser but it was the Millers who countered and clinched the game.

The third came from a horrific defensive error by Romford, the centre back didn't get anything on the header back to his keeper. Marcus Elliott poached the ball, he played it across the goal for Aaron Gayle who toe-poked into the bottom corner to wrap up the game for the Millers. Romford 1-3 Aveley.
