Winger Mitchell Cole is adamant Boro can handle the pressure of fighting for a play-off spot despite dropping points at home to Forest Green on Tuesday.

After unconvincing performances in the victories over Woking and Altrincham, Cole believes Boro's luck finally ran out against Rovers but the 23-year-old insists the squad has enough character to get their season back on track.

"We've had a few bad performances over the past couple of weeks and that just crept in again. We were lucky against Altrincham and Woking but it seemed like our luck ran out against Forest Green.

"Teams are still looking at us at the moment. We are still the form team in the division based on results and we need to keep that going.

"The wind played a big part in the first half. We couldn't get the ball out of our half as every time the ball went up in the air it was coming right back at you.

"It's the same for them in the second half so we couldn't use it as an excuse."

Cole suffered a dead leg soon after his success from the spot but the former Grays man is hopeful he can shake it off before the trip to Northwich Victoria.

"I picked it up when me and Gilly (Jerry Gill) clashed on the halfway line. You can get through it as long as you're moving.

"I was on the bike at half time trying to keep it moving but it stiffened right up and it was no good for the second half. Hopefully, I will be ok for Saturday.
