Romford boss Paul Martin revealed its touch and go on when loan goalkeeper Arthur Janata will be available for his side.

Janata, who joined Boro from National League outfit Leyton Orient last month, could be called back up to his parent club due to an injury to the club’s first-team keeper Charlie Grainger.

Martin admits they’re just playing each week by ear right now, but is happy to have two good young keepers he can call on, in Janata and Steven Reynolds.

“It’s a bit ongoing at the minute, it’s very hard especially with Leyton Orient’s first-team keeper getting injured the other day, I know Arthur was pulled into the reserves so again we won’t know if we’ve got him every week or anything,” he said.

“Young Steven is obviously going to get his chance again sooner or later and he’s more than capable of playing in goal at this level.

“We’ve just got to be patient and wait and see, it was just a matter of taking Steven out of the firing line a bit because we’re no winning games, and that reflects on people’s confidence.”

The call on Janata was up in the air for a long stretch due to the club not having a head coach, but Orient moved to appoint former Gillingham, Newport County and Northampton Town manager Justin Edinburgh on Wednesday.

The Boro manager believes it’s a good move and that he’s hoping the new man starts using the club’s youth team.

“They went with him instead of me,” he joked.

“He should be a good manager for them, his managed at a high level as well, and I think he’s got a firm way of running the club and I think he’ll get the best out of those players hopefully.

“The downfall of some of these managers is they’ve got to look at their youngsters, look at what they’ve got in the youth because Leyton Orient have got a fantastic youth academy.”

Martin revealed he has been impressed watching the O’s youth team this season and hopes they dig themselves out of trouble.

“I’ve watched them three or four because of young Arthur in goal and there’s probably four or five, six, seven or eight players could easily play in the Bostik or above.

“Hopefully he’ll give some of the youngsters a chance, he’s got nothing to lose.

“It’s an old club of mine and I’m wishing them all the best, hopefully they can get themselves out of trouble as much as we can get ourselves of trouble at Romford.”
