Stevenage manager Graham Westley was pleased to keep up the recent good form with a 2-1 win at home to AFC Wimbledon this afternoon, particularly with three enforced changes to recent weeks.
He told Boro Player, “Brunty obviously missed out last time with a knock he got against Cambridge, Macca’s gone back as well and Charlie Lee wasn’t fit for selection as a starter today so it was important we tried to keep some momentum in what we’re doing. I thought the lads who came in all worked diligently at their jobs, the team kept its winning momentum up and that’s positive."
Boro's opening goal was steered home excellently by Tom Pett but much credit goes to Adam Marriott for his part in the build-up. GW told us, “It was a brilliant finish by Pett. The boy is growing all the time, I think that’s his fourth goal now and if you look at it with a goal per game ratio he’s doing a good job for a wide man.
"Adam was very good this afternoon, there’s a lot of room for improvement but he looks a constant menace, a constant threat, he wants to get at goal and he’s got a lot of ability. Once we tidy him up and get him more focused and add a bit more clinicality to what he does, he’s going to be a very good player."
