Boro kept up their challenge for the play-offs with an impressive 3-0 win away at Weymouth on Saturday.
There had been fears that the enforced break due to the weather would break Boro's winning rhythm but these worries proved unfounded as Graham Westley's side marched on to their seventh consecutive victory against their debt-ridden opponents.
Andy Drury settled any nerves the visitors had going into the match when he latched on to Lee Boylan's blocked strike to fire home.
Weymouth had their chances, most notably through Santos Gaia, whose first half effort crashed off the crossbar to the relief of Boro's travelling fans.
Sought-after striker Stuart Beavon also ensured Chris Day earned his wages when his close range header brought the best out of the former Millwall man while Stephen Reed also went close to finding an equaliser.
But Steve Morison settled the match when Drury found Boro's top scorer in space and the 25-year-old made no mistake by calmly slotting in his 20th goal of the season in the Blue Square Premier.
