Winger Tom Pett was a happy man after his goal helped Stevenage to a 3-2 derby win over Cambridge this afternoon at The Lamex Stadium.
He told Boro Player, "They brought a lot of fans, we had a good set of fans too who were noisy all the way through so it made for a good game. Obviously to get three goals in the first half was good and we got the crowd on our side. The second half was always going to be hard, they were going to come out fighting with not much to lose. It was a good result and we’re happy with the three points."
Talking us through his goal, he explained, “It was one of those where ‘do I go and head it’ or ‘do I wait for it?’ I made the decision as it was coming over and I thought it would just miss him. If he’d got any touch on it, it would have put me off so I was in two minds whether to take a touch or go up for a header but I obviously made the right decision. It was all about keeping my eye on the ball, getting it on target and luckily it went in."
