Gary Smith has challenged his Stevenage players to show last weekend's "gut-wrenching" defeat against Swindon was just a blip.
Boro saw their unbeaten home record come to an end with a 4-0 loss at the hands of Paulo Di Canio's side and Smith expects his players to bounce back in the FA Cup clash with Rotherham.
He told the club's Boro Player: "The weekend's game was slightly different to any normal defeat, with the manner of the defeat and it being at home.
"It takes a couple of days to get it out of our system. We've looked through footage and had a chat on it.
"The players were hurting as much as we were as coaches. But we've got to push on.
"Saturday is a great opportunity for them to get back on track with a very tough game up at Rotherham."
