Teddy Sheringham refuses to get carried away with Stevenage’s good run of form that has seen seven points picked up out of the last possible nine.

Although he admits the team has confidence and is on an upward curve, he says there is a long way to go.

“When you win games it brings confidence and it is a nice place to be at the moment.

“Like I said after the game, we are improving. You don’t always get results when you are improving but it is nice when you do. Even if we had come off and drawn that game, there would have been improvements.

“We are still at very early stages; it is a month into the season. From pre-season to now, we have made huge improvements but we need to make more. It is good but it is not great.”

York will arrive at the Lamex in good stead after a convincing away win in their last game and Teddy says it will be an intriguing match up.

“It is another test – a very different test. They do try and pass the ball and they play a different system which might be tricky for us. We all have to be understanding what is expected of our team against a different system. We played against a 4-4-2 last week; they have been playing a 3-5-2 which makes it interesting.

“If you don’t tune into what problems they might give you, you can end up chasing shadows so we need to understand the problems that they might cause us and eradicate them so we get on the front foot and cause them problems.

“They had a very good result last week against Newport; they did what we couldn’t do by going down there and getting a very good result. To win anywhere away from home is a good result and it was quite convincing for them, winning 3-0 so they will be coming here on a high hoping to do exactly the same to us.”
