Boro won 3-1 on aggregate

BORO are through to Wembley after a tense and dramatic win over Grays Athletic on Saturday.

Extra-time goals from Luke Oliver and Steve Morison secured a trip - probably! - to the revamped Wembley on May 12 in the final of the FA Carlsberg Trophy.

The extra 30 minutes were needed after Grays had levelled the tie on aggregate through Alex Rhodes' 50th minute goal and the visitors were further frustrated by the brilliance of Boro keeper Alan Julian.

The result ended Grays' hopes of winning the Trophy three times in succession but the dream is still alive for their former boss Mark Stimson who now manages Boro.
