GRAHAM Westley said Charlie Griffin's impact on Boro's win at Grays Athletic will give both the striker and his teammates confidence.

Griffin has been out of Boro's first team for two months due to personal reasons but was brought on with 12 minutes to go on Tuesday evening and with the score at 1-1 he forced Grays defender Danny Bunce into heading the ball into his own goal for Boro's winner.

Speaking after the match, Westley joked: "Apparently Charlie got a hair to it but if you look at the state of his head I can't see too much on there so I'm not sure which hair he got on it.

"He did have a smile on his face when he claimed it so I'll have to check that one out.

"Irrespective whether he got it or not it was his presence that forced the error. It was nice to see him make that difference.

"He's had a tough time and hasn't played much football and obviously his reintroduction tonight and the fact that he's played his part in the victory is important for his confidence and for everybody who is not in the side because there are plenty in the squad that are not getting football at the moment [but they are] showing a great attitude, really supporting the team and when one of them gets an opportunity it gives a little bit of hope to everyone which is a real positive.
