Boro boss Graham Westley admitted his side have got some work to do after Tuesday night's 1-1 draw at Hayes & Yeading.

"We are not functioning as fluidly as a team as we can," Westley told The Comet. "We know that we're better than we're playing at the moment and I'm sure that the performances will improve.

"We got our noses in front and again we've conceded a sloppy goal to let them back in it.
