Defender Mark Roberts says he team will go to Cambridge tomorrow looking for the win despite Boro holding a 3-1 lead from the first leg in the play-off semi-final.
Despite Boro's awesome second half display, Roberts warned that Boro are only at the halfway point of the tie and it's vital they finish what they started on Thursday evening.
"We go there with the mentality to win the game," Roberts told The Comet. "If we win that game then we're in the play-off final with an opportunity to get into the Football League so although it's great to be taking a 3-1 win we don't want to be resting on our laurels. It's just half time. We can't get carried away although it was a fantastic performance. We've got to go there and finish off the job now."
Roberts set Boro on their way in the first leg with a predatory finish in the box and the 25-year-old revealed it was something the team have been working on in training.

"I was due a goal. I haven't scored for 10 games I think looking in the programme. I like to get in the box and score goals and we've been working on the corners and free kicks in training and it was nice to score."
Jon Ashton recovered from a shoulder injury to take his place in the Boro line up and Roberts said it was good to be back playing alongside the big defender.
