The gaffer says the team's approach won't change for tomorrow's big game...

Speaking ahead of Saturday’s final game of the regular season, GW says that despite nothing riding on the trip to Luton, the team will be sent out to win the three points.

“We hope we have got four games left this season and what we know at this football club is that winning is a constant.

“It is not something that you can switch on or switch off, it is something that you have to be focused on every day. Something you have to be focused on every time you go to work.

“We have worked very hard this morning to put ourselves in good shape for tomorrow’s game and tomorrow we will be working to win because that is what we know is the recipe for success.

“Our approach hasn’t changed and it wouldn’t have changed had we not won the game last weekend. Our focus would have been to win the next game and that is where we are at.”

Looking ahead, Boro’s play-off opponents are still undecided with one of Wycombe, Bury or Southend set to visit the Lamex on May 10th for the semi-final first leg

GW says that with us being guaranteed 6th, the extra planning time should come in handy.

“We will get who we get and we will do our best to be a ferocious opponent. Whoever we get, we will do our best to defeat. We are all very focused on being as good as we can be.

“The advantage that we have got I suppose is we have had certainty. In our minds there was certainty but now we have got absolute certainty. Everyone at the football club has been able to behave with absolute certainty, everyone has had a chance to really get ahead of things and start planning a week earlier than any other club for the play-off situation.

“If we are wise we ought to be able to use that advantage and we try very hard to be wise. We are in a good position, we know that but a good position or an advantage is only there if you capitalise on it.”
