The gaffer and Peter Hartley look ahead to Notts County
Following the win on Tuesday night there was a renewed confidence and hunger about the squad up at Bragbury End before the crunch clash with Notts County.
The manner of the performance was what pleased Boro boss Graham Westley the most.
“I said to the players after the game, it was the first time in a long while that I can remember seeing the team play like one of my teams plays; there was a hunger, an appetite, a work ethic, a desire, a togetherness, a spirit, good organisation. We looked a strong outfit, it was good to see.”
Boro have won the last three games against the Magpies and four out of the last six. Graham believes it gives the team an edge:
“Of course it gives you confidence, of course it gives you a sense that history is on your side. When you’ve got a good track record against a club, it’s never harmful. These things tend to happen for a reason.
“The key at the weekend is to make sure we’re right. I’m sure if we’re right we’ll win the game.
“We’ve got to put a lot of hard work in and they’ve had a clean week, we haven’t.”
Peter Hartley was in a buoyant mood when looking ahead to the challenges ahead, telling us, “I think we’ve started the New Year very well. I think we’ve put 2013 behind us and are looking to make 2014 a successful year for Stevenage Football Club.”
When asked about the importance of following up Tuesday’s win with the same on Saturday, he added, "Without a doubt, you take every game as it comes. Swindon’s gone – done and dusted. We got the three points, now we’ve got to pick another three up against Notts County on Saturday.”
