Boro Player spoke to goal scorer Robin Shroot after Saturday’s loss at home to Crawley Town, and he admitted that scoring doesn’t mean a thing when you lose.
Shroot echoed the thoughts of his manager, describing both Crawley goals as “very avoidable” and said that the result was “utterly disappointing”. He continued “we looked in the driving seat after we scored, it’s just unfortunate that we conceded two sloppy goals and lost the game.”
When asked what he thought of his goal that had given Stevenage a second half lead, Shroot said “Every time I play, I believe I can score a goal. If you try and get into the right areas then more often than not hopefully it lands to you. Yes I scored, but a 2-1 loss is as good as a 2-0 loss.”
Next up for Boro is a trip to Brentford next weekend, and Shroot is looking to bounce back in style. “We need to carry on our away form at a side who are very much in and around the play odds. We went there last year and I know we won and got a great result but it’s always a challenging place to go to.
“We’ve shown in this league that we can do things against those teams that are fighting for play offs and there’s no reason why we can’t have a fantastic week and put in a great performance.”
