Town boss Michael Jolley was encouraged by what he saw at Stevenage today – despite seeing his side falling to another defeat.
Speaking to the press after the game, he said: “I thought in contrast to the last two games we fought, we ran, we stayed in the game and had some chances to score that first goal that seems to be eluding us at the moment.
“I think certainly in terms of the last two games, it was an improvement in the level of performance.
“I think we were competitive, and in the first half we had some situations where we could have created and scored.
“Certainly in the second half, going into the business end of the game, we were right in it. Once again, we’re disappointed to lose, but I saw improvement from the last two matches.
“We wanted to try and win the game. We’re conscious of the fact we haven’t given our supporters a victory for some time, and we haven’t scored a goal for some matches.
“We spoke at half-time about trying to prevent counter-attacks, but regardless they countered on us too many times, which is a concern and something we need to address."
