Boro found themselves 3-0 down in the first twenty minutes, when they found it difficult to defend the route-one style of play from the hosts.
When Boro did find their way into goal scoring chances, they either found the home keeper in good form, or the shooting was wayward. Boro did try to get into the game but it was a bad day at the office. The game was marred by a bad ankle injury to Jose Fixe, the club wish him a speedy recovery.
Boro's goalscoreres were Nathan Lake and Matty Venables. Another trip for Boro on Saturday, to Buxton, kick-off 2.30pm.
