Stevenage boss, Teddy Sheringham says that although performances and results have hit an up-turn in recent weeks, the club still has plenty of work to do in order to get to where everyone wants to be.

Three wins and two draws in our last five league games has moved the club away from the relegation zone and into the mid-table mix but now the focus is to keep climbing the table and continue in the same vein.

“We have had a few wins and it has made a difference to the club, we are in a good place but we still need a few wins to get to where we want to be. It is always ongoing, we need to keep performing and progressing game-by-game.

“I have been in football a long time to know that all that progress can halt very quickly if we start taking things for granted, thinking we have arrived and got everything sorted and sussed - we will fall flat on our face.

“That is for me to make sure my team understand that and we keep progressing.”

One of this season’s surprise packages, Accrington Stanley are currently in the promotion picture after a superb start to the season and the gaffer says that Accrington’s boss, Jon Coleman has done a brilliant job.

“Fantastic job. When you look at the budgets of different clubs, you expect the big budgets to be at the top. He hasn’t got one of the biggest budgets at all and for them to be consistently at the top all season is fantastic for Accrington and for Jon Coleman.

“I have got every respect for him, I have watched a lot of his football this week and the way they play and we are in for a real footballing encounter this weekend. I think they are up there with the top footballing teams and they have got two or three very good players in there with a very organised team.

“We are going to try and stop them from playing, that is what you have to do in football matches – stop them from playing and then we go on from there and hopefully enforce our character and playing ability on them.”
