Maynard nodded past Paul Farman to grab the points after Scott Wharton’s excellent through ball fed the 32-year-old former Crewe forward after flick-ons from Dom Telford and Adam Thompson.

The result was harsh on Boro who had dominated the match with Maamria saying afterwards: ““Everybody is telling me we were very unlucky and that we did not deserve to lose that.

“When you do not take the chances, you are always in the hand of one mistake and it costs you the game.

“I thought we dominated most of the game, we were the better team. It was a scrappy game with the wind.

“We pressed them, we got physical with them, we dominated certain areas of the pitch.

“We got on the front foot with intention from the start. I think everybody who came saw a team who was on the front foot and trying to win the game.”
