Westley's new-look Boro are still without a point to their name this season following a narrow 1-0 defeat by Leyton Orient on Saturday.
"It was always going to be a difficult start tothe season for us," he said.
"As much as we want to try and hide from it and pretend we can get it together very quickly, there is a completely new team here.
"I thought the team over the course of the 90 minutes put in enough work and showed enough desire to come home with at least a point.
"Our best chance hit the bar and bounced down and bounced away. The small margins are going against us at the moment, but they even themselves out over the season."
