BORO boss Graham Westley said he wants his side to finish off Kidderminster Harriers with another win when Steve Burr's side visit the Lamex Stadium on Saturday.

Boro put on a stunning display in front of goal to dismantle Kiddie 5-1 on Saturday in the FA Trophy semi-final first leg but Westley wants his players to take no prisoners when they play the return tie this weekend.

"We came into the tie wanting to win both games," Westley told The Comet. "We came here to win and we want to win next weekend and our mentality will be no different. We want to win at our place and if we do we will be in the final.

"We had enough to win the game in convincing fashion but I don't think we were near our best, that's for sure."

Boro started slowly against Kidderminster with the hosts dominating the first 20 minutes and Westley said his is a side which does not always start quickly from the first whistle.

"I know we're a side which tends to grow in games," the Boro boss said.

"We tend to start and build a platform and build our game from there. It's not unusual for sides to come out quickly against us.

"They are a side which like to move the ball and they have a lot of bright players like Knights that dart in and are difficult to handle but we didn't underestimate at all the team we were playing against."

One thing which has pleased Westley this season is that Boro have been sharing the goals about throughout the squad.

So far this campaign Boro have had 17 different players get on the scoresheet and the five goals on Saturday were shared between three of them, David Bridges (two), Chris Beardsley (two) and Yemi Odubade.

"It's nice that you've got that in the team," Westley said.

"You look at some sides and you think 'well he gets their goals or he gets their goals' and in our camp the goals are spread around.

"There are a number of different players that can arrive and put the ball in the back of the net and it's good to see the boys showing some clinicality.
