Mark Roberts feels there are exciting times ahead for Stevenage after they came from behind to claim a 4-2 home win over MK Dons in League One.
Former Colorado Rapids coach Gary Smith was watching in the stands at Broadhall Way on Tuesday night ahead of his appointment as Boro's new manager on Wednesday.
"In my time in charge, I've tried to keep things as normal as possible and you can see with the results we've had that it's worked," caretaker player-manager Roberts said.
"They are an honest bunch of lads and they keep improving - they are a credit to themselves and a credit to this football club.
"Success has meant an opportunity for Graham (Westley) and we wish them all well and we'll concentrate on Saturday with our new manager, so these are exciting times.
"We gave a terrific response to going behind and to score four goals again was different class. We came out all guns blazing at the start and we were caught on the counter-attack and it took us a little while to get going after that.
"A fantastic goal from Michael Bostwick got us back into it and we scored some great goals in the second half - we know what our strengths are and we're very good at that."
