Stevenage boss, Teddy Sheringham says there has been a buzz about the camp this week following the 2-1 victory at Bristol Rovers that means Boro remain unbeaten in November.

Speaking ahead of Saturday’s game against Morecambe, the boss says it is a result we need to build on.

“There’s certainly a difference. We are not used to going away from home and getting three points but it is a fantastic feeling and one that we want to replicate when we go away again.”

The win was marred by an ACL injury to Steven Schumacher and Teddy says it is a huge loss for everyone involved.

“First of all a massive blow for Schuey as man and as a professional footballer. I think he has been outstanding since he has come in. Then for the football club as well, for me as a manager to lose somebody of his experience and his understanding.

“It will be a big blow because he is a great man to have around. I am sure he will still have his input somewhere along the line but to miss him on the pitch is a massive blow for the football club and I wish him a speedy recovery.”

Following the news, Boro made three loan deadline day signings to bolster the squad – Lee Cox, Callum McFadzean and goalkeeper Michael Crowe all arriving on loan.

The manager spoke about the two new outfield additions.

“Lee Cox has come in from Plymouth late yesterday. We have been watching him probably for the last month and are liking what we have seen of him.

“It really was apparent after Schuey got injured on Tuesday night that we might need a bit more experience in there at some stage in the next 6 or 7 weeks.

“He will definitely do something for us in there, he is an experienced player and has played probably 150 league games at different levels and he will be a good acquisition.

“Callum is one of those that could play in three or four positions I would say, he is one that we can juggle about. I have only seen him once in training yesterday and he looked quite lively so I am looking forward to working with him as well.”

Having occupied 20th position in the league for a number of weeks, a win on Saturday could see Boro move up the table and into the right direction.

Teddy knows though that Morecambe will pose a real threat and that they have seen plenty of goals go in at both ends this season.

“That is all ifs and buts – we need to be at our best on Saturday to get a result against Morecambe.

“If you were a betting man you would have money on the overs wouldn’t you? Obviously that is not our plan as a home team, we want to keep clean sheets, feel good about ourselves at home and come out and win the game.”
