ROMULUS boss Richard Evans hailed his side’s performances in the last week as a possible springboard for the play-offs, writes Andy Mitchell.
After a shaky start to the season the Roms knocked New Mills off the top of the table last weekend, before gaining a point at Kidsgrove Athletic on Tuesday night in a fiesty encounter.
The Roms had led 2-0 at Kidsgrove before being pegged back.
Peter Faulds was sent off as both sides were reduced to ten men and Marvin Johnson missed an injury time penalty.
But Evans said he was still pleased with the point.
“I’m not too disappointed, we scored twice early on and it’s never an easy place to go,” he said.
“It’s a good point away from home in midweek and not many sides will get anything there this season.
“Overall though, we’ve shown what we are capable of in the last two games - we are a good side and hopefully we can put a run together now.”
This weekend, Romulus return to FA Cup action, playing their First Qualifying Round tie against Bridgnorth Town of the Midland Alliance at Chasetown this Sunday (Scholars Ground, Church Lane, ko 2pm).
