Despite the disappointment of the FA Cup defeat to Barnsley on Tuesday , the manager was pleased with the individual performances from the pair.
Left back Roberts looked more like a 16-year-old than a 36-year-old, bombing forward and making some vital defensive interventions.
Following the match, footage of him eating Jaffa Cakes for a mid-game energy boost went viral.
Roberts has been an ever present this season, save for the Cheshire Senior Cup loss at Runcorn Town, and Burr has been thrilled with his contribution.
Burr said: "Gareth's been fantastic and he's an infectious character and for me he's everything that a young kid coming through should look up to.
"He's 36 and he's been a great pro but he still wants to the best at what he does, he never misses training and it was nice to see him get a bit of credit all be it through Jaffa Cakes from his performance the other night.
"He's great to work with."
Centre half Brown was another to impress as the 24-year-old maintained his excellent form since winning back his place at the start of November.
Brown, who signed in the close season from Chesterfield, lost his place after five games of the season and then struggled with shin splits but has been outstanding since returning to the team.
Burr said: "I think the spell with Matty when he got out of side, he was really down and he was really feeling it the fact that he wasn't playing because of his shin splints.
"I think the way Michael Kay was playing at the time, Matty realised I've really got to step my game up here to be in the team and stay in the team and he's certainly done that.
"He's been terrific, he's a great skipper and he's another one, he's a character and he's a young lad still learning a lot but he's growing with every game."
