Charlie Lee says that ‘disappointment’ was the lingering feeling after a topsy-turvy game between Stevenage and York ended 2-2.
Lee lamented a poor first half performance but says York made it difficult for Boro.
“The overall feeling is disappointment.
“We wanted to win but we didn’t start well. It was a tough game - they came, shut up shop and forced us into a few mistakes but we didn’t start well.
“When we got ourselves 2-1 up we will be disappointed not to hold out.
“You do feel a bit frustrated when you get two goals like that but there wasn’t really much in it today. They came, tried to make it a bit messy and they managed to do it.”
Boro came out for the second half 1-0 down and went about making amends immediately as they rallied to take the lead before being pegged back by a stunning equaliser.
Stevenage didn’t give up the ghost as they continued to push for a winner but it wasn’t to be.
“In the second half we looked a completely different team and for 20 minutes they couldn’t handle us, we scored two and we have to shut it out then.
“After we conceded the second goal we were a bit deflated but we pressed on and it only really looked like it was us that was going to win it. We will probably look at the first 30 minutes where we just a bit sloppy and that cost us really because in the second half we were the better team but you are already 1-0 down by then.”
After going the first six games without a goal, last season’s top goalscorer says he is relieved to be back on the score sheet.
“I needed it; I have had a couple of chances that I should have converted, especially last week. I have done alright but obviously you get judged on goals and you have got to get goals.”
