'We're coming to get you' - that's the message from Mitchell Cole to Boro's play-off rivals after the 23-year-old's goal was enough to secure three vital points against Ebbsfleet United.

Kidderminster, Torquay and Histon all slipped up on Saturday giving Boro hope that they can claw their way back into the top five and Cole believes Boro are hitting form again just at the right time.

"We're right up there and we're pulling everyone in now," Cole told The Comet. "We're confident as we've got to play the other teams around us and if we can win those six-pointers we'll be fine. They will make or break our season."

Boro sit just outside the play-offs on goal difference from Histon with Kidderminster just a point ahead now having played the same amount of games as Stevenage.

Boro head to Crawley on Monday in good spirits after Cole's fine solo goal was enough to beat the Blue Square Premier strugglers.

"I picked up the loose ball and cut inside and had a little one-two with Calum (Willock).

"Hopefully, we can kick on now and make it a really memorable season.
