Mark Stimson warned Boro will guard against complacency in the return fixture at Broadhall Way.

The Boro boss said: "We've still got a job to do this Saturday and Grays have shown us they will ask us some questions.

"And I think there will be a lot more goals in the second game.

"We cancelled each other out on a difficult surface in the first half and then it was more what you'd expect in the second half."

Matchwinner Santos Gaia came in for high praise as Stimson added: "Santos is a team player and the sort of person you want in a semi-final."

And of the decision to start Dale Binns in place of fellow winger Mitchell Cole, Stimson continued: "It wasn't a game for Mitchell to start due to the pitch. But we gave him some time at the end and their full-back dropped off 15 or 20 yards as soon as Mitchell came on."
