Boro need to take inspiration from the form they found last season after a difficult start according to manager Graham Westley.

The Stevenage chief has seen his side pick up two points from six in their opening two fixtures against Tamworth and Hayes & Yeading but has taken comfort in the fact Boro have avoided defeat unlike last season when it took six games to get a win on the board.

Westley believes that once his side shake away the cobwebs of pre-season, his troops will be able to gather a winning momentum by turning those draws into victories.

"We're unbeaten at the moment after two games," Westley told The Comet. "We would have loved to have won them both but we haven't. We just need to build on that.
