Boro boss Graham Westley believes his side created enough chances to take maximum points after their 1-1 draw with fellow promotion hopefuls Kettering Town on Saturday.

Boro were pegged back thanks to Moses Ashikodi's strike after Joel Byrom had put Stevenage in front after less than two minutes but Westley's men looked far more likely to find a winner in the second period.

Both Charlie Griffin and Chris Beardsley had excellent opportunities as Boro pushed hard for a winner but Kettering managed to keep them at bay.

"I thought we were the better side especially in the second half," said Westley. "I dread to think what the possession count was in our favour.
