​​Boro are on the road for their next Sky Bet League Two fixture, as we prepare for a Good Friday clash with Keith Curle's Oldham Athletic at Boundary Park...

Last time out, Boro extended their unbeaten run to ten games, beating Barrow 2-1 courtesy of second-half goals from Elliott List and Luke Norris. This result also saw Alex Revell's side move up to 14th in the League Two table, winning each of their last four games at the Lamex Stadium. 
 
After the game, Boro boss Alex Revell stated "I don’t think there is a team in the Football League that has had the turnaround we’ve had. You have to be proud of that and I am extremely proud of how far we’ve come. It’s a very different team from what we were. What we were doing was very new at the start of the season, but now you are starting to see it every day.  
 
I feel we’re together and really united as a club. That was one of my biggest things. You can’t have a successful team if you’re not together. But if you come here now, the pitch here is one of the best in the league and the ground is finished, it is a lovely stadium to come and play at. We’re in a really good place and then it was just about getting the football right."
