Boro Player spoke to Robin Shroot after the exciting 2-2 draw with Crewe Alexandra in which the home side had to come back from going two down within the first eight minutes.
Stevenage remain unbeaten in the league this season but are still looking for their first home win as their poor start to this game made it an uphill struggle to come away as winners, even though they had a goal controversially ruled out by a suspicious offside decision.
Shroot was delighted to come off the bench to earn a point for the home side but conceded, he wanted all three points.
“Thankfully I was able to put the ball in the back of the net again but more importantly to me we dropped two points. It is frustrating to put in such a positive second half performance, even after the first ten minutes and still not come out of the game with a win; we are unbeaten though.”
The Boro hit man then went on to praise the influence of young winger Luke Freeman who bagged his first goal of the season.
“It was fantastic goal he’s one of those players regardless of how he performs he’s always capable of a moment such as putting the ball in the top corner. He set up my goal and he’s a fantastic footballer so it shouldn’t be a surprise that he has done that.”
During a hard fought match, former Stevenage loanee Chuks Aneke was dismissed for a two footed lunge on Anthony Grant, and Shroot explained how his old teammate from last season has not got a bad bone in his body
“Because he has jumped in it was one of those tackles that could be portrayed as dangerous. If you look at Granty, I know he is down on the floor but he has got up and got on with it. Chuks is not like that in the slightest, he is the most laid back character and I know it’s not in his persona to do that.”
Stevenage are at the Lamex again on Tuesday evening as Walsall, who have also had a good start to the season, will be aiming to jump ahead of Boro in the league table, Shroot however, outlined what his side will have to do to gain their first win at home.
“I think we need to make sure we stamp our authority at home. Walsall are on a good run as well, they got a good result today but it’s just another game of football and if you want it more than the other team and are willing to put in the graft then why not?”
