Boro skipper Mark Roberts insists the players have already put the midweek win at Luton behind them and are focusing on maintaining their promotion challenge at York City on Saturday.

While the Boro faithful will continue to revel in the victory at Kenilworth Road, a result that has ultimately cost Mick Harford his job as manager, Roberts is looking for the club to continue their impressive away form at The KitKat Crescent.

"It was obviously a fantastic result but we are not getting too carried away - it's just another three points at the end of the day," Roberts told The Comet.

"I'm sure the fans will enjoy the result just as much as the players and the management but we have to go to York and reproduce that kind of performance."

Roberts said he wasn't surprised to see the 34-year-old produce that kind of stop with the 'keeper exuding confidence that spreads throughout the whole side.

"That's what Daisy is all about - it was a fantastic save. But, to be honest, he does that week in, week out for us.

"He goes about his business quietly but it's great to have him behind you and it's great playing in front of him.
