Boro boss Graham Westley hailed his side's character after they overturned a 2-0 deficit to beat 10-man Mansfield Town on Saturday.

Charlie Griffin was Boro's hero as his 69th minute winner secured all three points and alleviated some of the pressure on the former Salisbury man to fill Steve Morison's boots this season.

The villain of the piece however, was undoubtedly Kyle Perry, who after bagging a brace, was dismissed for appearing to stamp on Lee Boylan and Boro wasted no time in making their one-man advantage count.

Chris Beardsley pulled one back before the break before Yemi Odubade levelled and the comeback was complete when Griffin netted from close range to make it a great afternoon's work for Westley and Co.

"You find out about the depth of passion for the victory in that kind of situation and I thought it was a magnificent performance," the Boro chief told BBC Three Counties.

"It was an awful start and we shouldn't forget that, but what a reaction to that situation."
