A lively Stevenage side created a raft of chances they could not finish, as they drew 0-0 with Grimsby in an open game at the Lamex on Saturday afternoon.
While the point means they are now unbeaten in two matches following a goalless draw at Harrogate Town in midweek, the result against the Mariners means Boro have failed to score in seven outings, an unwanted club record.
However, Alex Revell's side carved out a number of openings, with their first early chance their best, as Elliott List's cross from the right channel was met by Marcus Dinanga, whose effort was blocked by visitors keeper James McKeown.
Ian Holloway's side responded with a Virgil Gomis long-range shot that flew wide for Grimsby.
Following the interval, Boro extended their dominance with a brace of chances to go ahead, but List's shot in a crowded box flew over - before the impressive Charlie Carter's header was deflected the wrong side of the post for the home side.
As the clock ticked down, Stevenage forced two late saves from the alert McKeown, the second of which denied Aramide Oteh's curler, as both sides shared the spoils with a point apiece.
Stevenage remain in 21st place ahead of their trip to Colchester on Tuesday.
Next weekend Boro host Concord Rangers in the first round of the FA Cup.
