The Opposition View - Stevenage

The Opposition View - Stevenage


Following yesterday's 2-0 win at Stevenage, here are some views on the game from Boro manager Graham Westley and a few of their fans.

Westley felt his side didn't do themselves justice until after the break.

"I thought it was a really disappointing first-half performance from us, and our attitude was short of the mark that we've set for ourselves," he told BBC Three Counties Radio.

"I think we proved that in the second-half when we stepped on the gas in terms of having a desire to go and win the game. We were far more purposeful, far more penetrative and created some good chances, which let's be honest, we probably should have taken."

The Boro boss was also disappointed with his side's defending for both the Wycombe goals.

"Two very sloppy goals to give away," he said. "Neither situation warranted a goal to be conceded. We've learned a lot of lessons this afternoon. When you're playing bigger clubs it's easy to play in awe of them. They are a side that were bringing a six figure striker off the bench - We were bringing a trialist off the bench. There's a big difference there and I think that can have an impact on your mentality."

"Wycombe have always been a strong side at this level and we've seen that again today."


The Boro fans were gracious in defeat.

'Good performance by Wycombe. Nothing special, but they did what they needed to and were able to soak up any attacking play we had. They brought a fair amount of support and compared to others made some good noise at times. They also took the p out of us by stealing our precious song. At least someone had a good time. Prediction - Playoffs for them.'

'The biggest problem today was their danger-man number 7, why oh why didn't we have someone on him. In the first-half he had loads of room and was always left unmarked.'

'Their keeper made one save low down from a long range Ronnie effort and that was it. Wycombe passed the ball and had the quality to finish when the delivery was made. They showed us exactly where we are today and it's going to take a while.'

'A good side and no complaints that they won, but I was very annoyed with our attitude in the first half. When we took the game to them in the second-half they looked a lot less comfortable. I think Wycombe will be right up there come the end of the season.'

'Having reflected long and hard, I have come to the conclusion that Wycombe were never in danger of losing today. They were much better than us all over the pitch. The really disappointing thing is that we should have gone into the game full of confidence but any confidence we had was gone in the first 15 minutes and the team didn't do itself justice.'

'The first-half was very one paced. Neither team were that impressive, but I did feel that Wycombe looked more dangerous going forward. I thought 2-0 was a bit of an unfair scoreline at half-time, but credit to Wycombe, they took their chances when they came.'

'Not to take anything away from a Wycombe side that played very well and deserved to win, but we were poor today.'

'No complaints with the result. Wycombe were the better side and deserved their win. We were very poor in the first half and didn't create a thing, Ainsworth was the best player on the pitch. From what I've seen so far I think Wycombe will be up there at the end of the season.'
