BORO make the long trip north tomorrow looking to beat an Altrincham side that hasn't lost at home since Burton Albion won there in late December.
Graham Westley's side make the journey buoyed by their 1-0 win against Woking and will be hoping to extend their 16-match unbeaten run.
Last Meeting - Boro ran out comfortable 3-0 winners when Altrincham visited The Lamex Stadium in September. Steve Morison scored twice, including a late penalty, either side of a Mitchell Cole strike as Boro recorded back-to-back wins for the first time this season.
Form - Traditional strugglers, Altrincham have surprised many this season and find themselves occupying 13th place in the Blue Square Premier table. The Robins have only lost twice since the turn of the year away at Oxford United and Torquay United. Their best result of late has been a 1-1 draw at the Pirelli Stadium against runaway leaders Burton Albion while their last two games at Moss Lane have seen the home side run out narrow 1-0 winners against relegation battlers Northwitch Victoria and Woking.

Players to Watch - Colin Little and Chris Senior have formed a good partnership for the home side with both players netting 10 goals so far this season.
Little has forged a reputation as one of the League's top marksmen finishing with 21 goals last season and attracting the attention of clubs higher up the football pyramid but, despite this interest, Little has remained loyal to the Robins.

The pint-sized Senior has worked his way into manager Graham Heathcote's plans and has rewarded him with goals in several key games including the only goal of the game last time out against Woking.
Greg Young has become a key component in the Robins' defence since his switch from Halifax Town last January. The 6ft 3ins defender has played all but one of Altrincham's Blue Square Premier games and will be charged with marking Boro hotshot Morison on Saturday.
