Boro boss Graham Westley does not want the euphoria surrounding his side's 3-2 win at Mansfield cloud the fact that improvements still need to be made.

Boro were 2-0 down within 16 minutes on Saturday before their memorable comeback netted all three points but Westley is eager for his side to learn the lessons from their trip to Field Mill in time for their match against Chester at the weekend.

"It was an awful start and I don't think we should forget that," Westley told The Comet. "For the first 20 minutes we simply weren't at the races and we've got to look into that.

"If you let sides get two goals in front away from home then more often than not you are going to cause yourself trouble.

"We need to learn from that and put it right for the trip to Chester this weekend."

Westley admitted that his players had savoured the victory over one of their promotion rivals on Saturday evening but insisted that all thoughts have now turned to another away day at Deva Stadium at the weekend.
