BORO boss Graham Westley believes there won't be many sides who will fancy a trip to The Lamex Stadium should his side make the play-offs.

Westley's side have been in scintillating form of late, suffering just one defeat in 30 games and the Boro manager believes his team will fancy their chances against anyone.

"We need to win at Mansfield and we'll back ourselves against anyone in the play-off semi-finals," Westley told The Comet. "I don't think there are too many teams who fancy playing us.

"We've got our focus very much on the weekend. We need to get there and get that game won and then there's the two play-off semi-finals that we can start concentrating on."
