Stevenage manager Teddy Sheringham said his side needs to ‘dig deep and be strong together’ after a 2-0 home defeat to Mansfield Town tonight.
Tom Conlon saw a glorious diving header kept out in the opening minutes of the game and the manager rued not taking that early opportunity against the Stags.
“We keep getting these really good chances early on in games. That’s what we set out to do, be on the front foot. We had one Saturday and another tonight, where if you capitalise things settle down and people calm down a little bit, but it wasn’t to be and it’s tough.”
After four games unbeaten towards the start of the month, this defeat makes it three without a win and Teddy admitted things haven’t gone to plan in recent weeks, telling us, “At this moment it’s not good and I know it’s not good. It’s understandable the little grumblings we are hearing but I know it can be a lot worse – I’ve been at clubs where it’s been a lot worse. We have to stick together as players and staff.
"I have no doubt if the performances turn around they’ll (the fans) be right behind us, but I’ve said since the start of the season that it works hand-in-hand. They have to see something first before they actually get excited, for us to respond to their excitement and for them to respond to that again. We have to dig deep and be strong together.”
