Gary Smith’s side are yet to be beaten in the league this season, winning four and drawing five; however Shroot is adamant that he and his teammates just want to do better.
“I don’t feel he [Gary Smith] needs to mention it to us. We are on an unbeaten run at the moment and to maintain team spirit and progress up the league it is important to prolong that”
The only negative to the start of the season was the inability to win at home after picking up three straight home draws, however after beating fellow high flyers Walsall 3-1 at the Lamex, that worry was put to bed.
Stevenage were hoping to earn their second home win this season but a late equaliser for Bury on Saturday meant that it’s seven points from a possible fifteen at the Lamex. When asked if protecting an unbeaten run adds negativity to Boro’s play Shroot replied “We showed against Walsall when it was 1-1 that we have a winning mentality and a draw is not acceptable. We worked hard and managed to get two more goals and win the game quite comfortably, but you can rest assured that nobody in our team is happy with draws and we are working hard to improve those results.”
Shroot, who is Boro’s top goal scorer this season with five goals in nine appearances, told the official website how he loves to score goals and how he wants to help the club win games whether it be coming off the bench or making the starting line-up.
“If I am playing or if I am not playing, I will endeavour to come on the pitch and try and score goals to move the team up the league.”
Shroot continued: “I enjoy scoring however it doesn’t mean anything until you are scoring 30 goals and winning the League.”
With work being carried out behind the scenes to try and increase home attendances the Stevenage midfielder had nothing but praise for the Boro faithful who make themselves heard every week.
“For me, they are the best fans in the league. I hope they keep up the magnificent support, each and every voice is valued and it makes a big difference to the lads especially when we are under the cosh and I know they are loud but I don’t think they know how much the lads respect them as well”
