Striker Lee Boylan insists Boro will be going all out for the win at Mansfield to make sure of a top five finish.

A victory would guarantee a place in the play-offs but, should Torquay or Kidderminster drop points, Boro only have to match their result to set up a play-off semi-final date.

Boylan won't be interested in what's going on elsewhere on Sunday at Field Mill, however. The players have worked too hard at keeping their destiny in their own hands to worry about other results now.

"It's going to be a tough game, but we'll be going there to win," Boylan told The Comet. "We've got to go out there and show the same attitude as we did against Kidderminster and get three points.

"It won't matter what other teams do if we take care of our own business."

Boylan said his team-mates were in buoyant mood after the convincing 3-1 win against Kidderminster on Tuesday evening - a performance that made you wonder how Boro found themselves struggling at the start of the season.

Boylan was in fantastic form against Kidderminster displaying the kind of lethal finishing to once again justify why manager Graham Westley chased him so hard last summer to bring him to The Lamex Stadium.

"They were obviously very important goals, but they all are at the moment," he added. "We knew we had to win as they were above us and we've now got a bit of an advantage going into the last game of the season.

"It's up to us now to finish the job.
