Boro goalkeeper Chris Day admits his job is being made a whole lot easier by the impressive back four in front of him.
During the club's 22-match unbeaten run, Day has kept 12 clean sheets but the 33-year-old insisted a lot of the credit should go to the back four.
"There have been some massive performances recently," Day told The Comet. "Bozzie (Michael Bostwick) was brilliant against Ebbsfleet and you can see there is a real bond between everyone at the back.
"We've got a lot of options as well and whoever gets thrown in there will do the job. They have come out their shells and been fantastic."
Jon Ashton and Mark Albrighton are both pushing hard for a first team place although both are expected to be on the bench for the visit of Oxford on Saturday.
Ronnie Henry returns from his three-match ban after his sending off against Northwich Victoria and the 25-year-old is expected to slot straight back in at right back.

Every single player will be desperate not to lose their place in the side for fear of missing the FA Trophy final at Wembley in May but it is understood manager Westley has imposed a ban on the 'W' word so the squad fully focuses on getting into the play-offs.
When Boro got to the final in 2007 their league form dropped off alarmingly and Westley is desperate to guard against this with his side unable to afford any slip-ups in their quest for a place in the top five.
