Graham Westley is looking for three points away at Brentford on Saturday so Stevenage can carry a winning feeling into the pre-season.
Relegation from League One was confirmed on Bank Holiday Monday after a loss to Bristol City but Boro have the chance to end the season with back-to-back victories after beating Walsall 3-2 last week.
“If you have pride and professional standards then anyone would rather come 22nd than 24th of course and that will be one our minds,” said Westley.
“[We need to] get people used to winning and getting people back in the frame of mind of showing up for a football game and winning it.”
Speaking about Saturday’s game, the manager said: “It’s a club getting ready to celebrate promotion and us having to get ready to stand as a guard of honour; it almost doubles the humiliation.

“It’s humiliating to face what we facing, especially when you’re getting salt rubbed in the wound as someone [Brentford] is experiencing the other end of the equation.
“Whatever the build up is…the last thing I’m interested in is what they’re doing. What I am interested is finishing season on a high. It would be great after a long and hard road to build upon optimism of last weekend by winning again. If we can go into the summer with more optimism on the back of the win last weekend then that’s the right way for us to end the season.”
