GW: WE'RE DESPERATE TO REWARD FANS

21 February 2014

Ahead of Saturday’s game with Peterborough, the gaffer spoke about the improvements he's seen in the squad over the last few games. 

Despite defeats away at Rotherham and Orient, aside from the first half in East London, the group showed plenty of positives to take into this weekend's match.

He told us, "I think they are becoming better, as individuals and a collective. The spirits definitely changed, the atmosphere’s definitely changed and quality of football they’re playing has improved. We just need to keep pushing them in the right direction."

Graham is still confident of putting a run together that will catapult the team up the league, drawing on previous experiences with the club.

"In 2003 I came in bottom of league. I think it took three draws and a defeat in four before we then went six straight wins and seven in eight. That's they type of form we need but we know its possible because it's happened at this football club in the past."

After Tuesday's defeat, Graham and the players made sure they acknowledged the travelling fans who arguably put in the performance of the night. The gaffer knows how important the fans will be in the clubs quest for survival. 

“The fans the other night deserve note because they were yet again the type of fans that Stevenage are; intelligent, supportive and patient. They get behind the side, stay behind the side, they get behind you as a manager and stay behind you as a manger. 

“They’ve been tremendous. Their patience with us all is patience that we’re all so desperate to reward as we go forward from this point onwards and you can bet that the lads will have them firmly in their mind. 

"The tough times when you’re 2-0 down away from home when people get around you and behind you, it just strengthens your resolve to want to give them something back.

“I’m sure the way that they roused the team was one of the reasons the team bounced back so strongly in the second half.”
