The Opposition View - Stevenage

The Opposition View - Stevenage


In the wake of yesterday's 1-0 home defeat to Stevenage, here are some views on the game from Boro manager Graham Westley and a few of their fans.

Talking about his double substitution after only 37 minutes, the Boro boss said: "I didn't really feel we were getting on top of the game and I didn't feel the momentum of the game was with us."

"I thought it would be best to change our shape and as luck would have it, it proved to be the change that made the difference for us."

"We try and work very hard and stay very organised and if you keep clean sheets you've always got a chance to score a goal and win the game."

"Wycombe are on a good run of form in the last three games. We didn't expect it to be easy and knew we would have to grind out the points. The boys worked very hard, but we weren't at our best by any stretch of the imagination."



The Stevenage fans knew they were fortunate to take all three points.

The following extracts are taken from Borochat.

"The game was won on 37 minutes. Well done Sir Westley. We didn't outplay Wycombe, we out-thought them. It's results like that that make you successful.'

"We played badly but had one chance and took it. Teams who get results when they aren't at their best are the teams who do well.'

"It was a scrappy game which could have easily have gone either way. Day seemed to have a horrible afternoon but made up for it with some crucial saves. An ugly performance but we got the job done.'

"Charlton lost, the title is still wide open.'


Nick wrote:
"Westleys subs were a cracking move. I was really impressed with the two Arsenal lads. Such a shame Freeman's shot at the end didn't go in.'


SFC Jonny wrote:
"Freeman scuffed it inches wide. Not as bad as the open goal Wycombe missed at the other end.'

"Good win for us. Wasn't a vintage display but we nicked it in the end. We rode our luck at times, but were solid and well organised and got better as the game went on.'


Next Game: Bournemouth v Wycombe - Mon 2nd Jan - 3.00pm

A Happy New Year to all our readers.
