Jordan Roberts was proud of his Stevenage team-mates but admits they can't look ahead for risk of ending their momentum.

The 3-0 win over League Two leaders Leyton Orient made it 11 without defeat and moved them to within two points of the summit and with a game in hand.

But with 20 games left in the season, the forward knows they have not achieved any of their goals just yet.

He said: "There’s always going to be chat and whatnot but we don’t worry about outside noise. Our focus is what we do. 

"[Promotion] is our priority, that’s what we want to achieve as a collective. 

"But you can get side-tracked if you look too far ahead at what might be. 

"That’s when you lose concentration. 

"We can’t look ahead to April, we only look ahead to the next game. 

"We’ve got a target on our backs now, being up there, people are going to want to disrupt our momentum. 

"It’s down to us to implement our game plan and not change it wherever we go. 

"We need to keep humble, keep focused and concentrate on the job in hand. 

"Everyone knows that and whenever you take your foot off the pedal, there is always someone ready to take your place. 

"It’s down to you as an individual to work hard and push yourself."

Roberts got the second goal on 11 minutes, five minutes after Jamie Reid had given Boro the perfect start.

Luke Norris wrapped things up in stoppage time but Roberts said it was the team performance that was key.

He said: "From the word go, the lads were bang on and knew their jobs. 

"We use the word relentless often in the dressing room and we were at it today. Everyone in the staff knows their jobs.  

"After last week [the 1-1 draw at Harrogate] it was essential we bounced back with maximum points. 

"We did that.

"It was a good start and creating chances early on gave us a boost. 

"We know what we’re like at home and having that sell-out crowd was like having an extra person. 

"We suffocated them, got in their faces and played our game, like we did earlier in the season. 

"When we are like that, no team can live with us. 

"If we keep doing that, hopefully it will be a successful season."
