BORO skipper Mark Roberts has called on the club's fans to continue their tremendous support as the club enters the business stage of the season.

The Boro fans were in fine voice at Rushden & Diamonds on Saturday and Roberts believes that level of support can really help Boro as they make their final push for the title.

"We took a tremendous support and they made a great noise," Roberts told The Comet.

"That's going to be massive in the coming weeks because it gives all the lads in the team a massive lift when we take such big crowds away."
