GW: "ZERO TOLERANCE NOW"

26 December 2013

Stevenage manager Graham Westley spoke to Boro Player after today's 4-0 defeat at Colchester.

Despite the result, the gaffer was keen to point out the chances his team created in an improved second half performance: “If you look at the game and take the goals out of it then we were probably the dominant side," he told us.

However away from the side's attacking threat, GW highlighted something at the other end of the pitch which frustrated him during the game.

"What I didn’t like this afternoon was the reaction I saw from the team to the two goals that we conceded as a result of Daisy’s errors. 

"Daisy has been an unbelievable servant to this club – that doesn’t give him the right to make mistakes and drop standards in terms of the basics of his job, but at the same time there were a lot of players who could’ve had the finger pointed at them. 

"The first place I would’ve liked people to be looking at was themselves. When people who really should look at themselves start pointing fingers at others, that isn’t the togetherness that wins things. 

“The togetherness isn’t there at the level we need it at. We’ve spoken very quickly but very succinctly about what’s required. 

"There’s zero tolerance now from me now. Enough is enough. Today is probably as low as I’ve felt as a Stevenage manager because of that single aspect.”
