Westley delight at Weymouth win

Boro boss Graham Westley could not hide his satisfaction at seeing his side cruise to a 3-0 win against Weymouth despite their disrupted preparations.
The Big Freeze had made it difficult for coaching staff to arrange regular training sessions in the run-up to the match and Westley was concerned this could impact upon the club's winning momentum.
Despite a slow start, this wasn't the case and goals from Andy Drury, Steve Morison and Michael Bostwick gave Boro their seventh victory in a row lifting them up to third in the table in the process.
"Quietly, I was a little bit concerned about the preparation we had bearing in mind the weather we've had," Westley told The Comet. "There was a little bit of ring-rustiness but we toughed it out and played enough good football to come back with the three points.

"Overall, it was a very professional performance from the lads and credit must go to them for that."
Westley was delighted to see other players apart from Morison getting on the scoresheet and believes goals from other areas of the field could prove vital from now until the end of the campaign.

"It wasn't just Steve scoring at the weekend. In the coming weeks it will be important for others to chip in here and there and that's what I liked about Saturday."
Boro's lofty position in the table is slightly false due to the fact they have played at least three more games than most of their play-off rivals.
But Westley insisted he is not concerned at what other clubs are doing and believes his players will not be fazed if they have to play catch-up on other teams in the Blue Square Premier run-in.
"We know that we are up against it in terms of having a successful season but we have now given ourselves a platform from which to work from.
"The task doesn't faze us - we just have to concentrate on winning and the rest will look after itself.
