Teddy Sheringham says he is frustrated by Stevenage’s last-gasp defeat at Cambridge after Harrison Dunk scored deep into stoppage time to send Boro home with nothing to show.
The manager admits though that he could see the goal coming.
“I am frustrated. I think if I am being honest, if we would have nicked a point it would have been nicking a point. We need to do better in a lot of areas.
“I could feel that it was coming; they were getting some good crosses into our box. There were a few ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ and ‘nearlies’.
“It is hard to take in the last minute especially when it wasn’t a free-kick up the other end – they are the little things that go against you – but it happens.
“I don’t think we got a lot of decisions today at all. I thought it was very hard work. With everything going on around us I didn’t think we were great but we could do with a few decisions here and there.”
“We had a very good chance early on, could have taken the lead and that might have changed the whole scenario of the game but it is all ifs-and-buts really.”
With a short turn-around before Tuesday’s home game against Mansfield, the gaffer says it is up to him and his staff to get the players going again.
“They will be down but it is up to myself and my staff to get in and around them.
“We have got a massive game at home on Tuesday and then again on Saturday so we need to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves down and get ready for Tuesday.”
