Lewis Wing spoke after Boro's 2-2 draw with Wigan Athletic on Tuesday evening.
Wing scored twice from range to swing the game in Boro's favour, but an own goal from Harold Moukoudi meant ten-man Wigan got a point.
"When they went down to ten men we got right back into the game," he said.
"I thought we were going to go on and win it.
"It's nice to add to the tally but these games are massive - and the next two are even bigger now."
