Boro travelled to Notts County having lost their first three matches this season but came away with three points thanks to a late winner from James Dunne.

"We've had a confidence in what we do," said Westley.

"We know that we're building. We knew we had a difficult start to the season with the number of players we've had stepping up to League One level. We've got lads who are jumping from the Conference and League Two.

"We know lads can make that jump because we've done it ourselves previously but it does take time. Not only are they making the jump but they're also getting themselves together, trying to gel and trying to understand me as a manager and what I want.

"It was never going to be an easy start despite what everyone was saying. If you're realistic you know that it was going to be a tough start. That said we've been edged out by the odd goal in three games and it was good to turn the corner with an away victory."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
