Stevenage boss Graham Westley has tipped striker Jordan Burrow to become an "outstanding" player.
The 20-year-old, a signing from Morecambe in the summer, scored a debut goal in
"He was exceptional against quality defenders and deserved the goal," Westley told BBC Three Counties Radio.
"He's going to be brilliant. I don't want to heap pressure on him but he's going to be an outstanding player."
Burrow scored once in 35 games for Morecambe last season, but turned down a new contract and instead opted to join Boro.
"I was talking to an agent before the game and he asked who have we brought in and I pointed at Jordan and said that boy is going to be some player," said Westley.
"His attitude, his application, his will to learn and to win are phenomenal."
