The gaffer on the 2-1 home win...

GW says that holding onto the three points against Newport was a test of the players’ resolve after a late goal for the visitors meant for a nervy finish.

Boro held onto the 2-1 victory and continued their good run of form as the team have now won four and drawn two of the last six games.

“It was a good test I guess of our character – did we have the resilience to hang on in there and see the game out after that mistake? Disappointed we conceded at a set (play), we are normally good in those scenarios but it happened - how were we going to react? How were we going to deal with it? With resilience.

“Unfortunately the goalkeeper came into play, I wish he hadn’t but Daysy did what he can do and made a couple of very, very good stops late on. Job done in the end and it was set-pieces that made the difference. We scored two of ours, they scored one of theirs and we came out on top.”

Next up for Boro is a trip to Cambridge and GW knows it will be a difficult game.

“It is a local derby, they got a good away point today with a late goal that shows resilience and shows that they go until the end of games.

“They are a tough outfit, I watched them play AFC Wimbledon the other week and it was a 0-0 draw. There were chances in the game but they are a big, strong side, very well organised side. They play with good determination, it is a local game and it is a tough place to go.”
