Boro boss Graham Westley was "disappointed" with some aspects of his side's 4-0 demolition of Forest Green Rovers on Saturday.

The Boro chief felt his side's first half performance left a lot to be desired and was relieved to see his players rally in the second period to seal their passage into the FA Trophy semi finals.

"It was a disappointment for me in terms of our application in the first half but I think the players showed after half time that they had a little bit more in them than they were showing," Westley told The Comet.

"I thought it was a professional second half and we really put the game away when we had the opportunity."

But should Boro win through in either the trophy or the play-offs, Westley has no intention of coming off second best.

"We know the score - when you do what we have done and get on that sort of run then you know what you are capable of.

"The best people set the standard and they live up to that on a continuous basis. Our goal has to be to keep living up to the standards we've been setting.

"We are putting games away and long may that continue.
