Boro boss Graham Westley insists his players will not be going out for revenge when they take on Wrexham at The Lamex Stadium tonight (7.45pm).

Dean Saunders' side were the last side to beat Stevenage on home soil last November but Westley said his side have only got eyes on closing the gap on Oxford United at the top of the Blue Square Premier table.

"Revenge really doesn't come into it," said Westley. "We just want the three points on offer.

"It's another chance for us to close the gap at the top and if we could do that then it would be a very enjoyable feeling."

Meanwhile, Saunders believes his side will be able to put the brakes on Boro's promotion charge.

"I don't think Stevenage have lost at home since we beat them there last season, but I am confident we can go there and get something from the game," he told The Daily Post. "We have to try and become a team that no-one likes playing against, which means we have to compete and win the second balls.
