Ahead of Tuesday night’s game against Yeovil, Darren Sarll has reflected on Saturday’s win at Luton and the scenes at the final whistle as the team celebrated with the travelling fans.
Sarll says that emotions were high after a difficult time recently.
“It took me back to the Cambridge game at home, another local derby where we played terrifically well. I want the fans to have that connection with the players and I want to have that connection with the fans. I think it is vitally important when you play for Stevenage that you have a shared common goal that everyone pulls in one direction to try and achieve.
“I thought you saw real commitment and emotion from the players after what has been a tough time and I think you saw that coming out a little bit at the end. Over the top at times, me included but I would rather be in that place than the other, that is for sure.”
Our last Tuesday Night game at home this season was early October and Sarll says he can’t wait to get back out under the lights.
“I like the Tuesday Night games at the Lamex, I think they are great games for us. I think when we looked at the ten days coming up, including last Saturday’s game, we looked at the importance of them ten days and I said it wasn't defining but it was important.
“I think it is going to be important that we get the home fans going Tuesday night. They have been brilliant of late and they have inspired everyone around us and been a massive help.
“I think it is time that the players, management, everyone involved with the group of players does their best to get those supporters on Tuesday night off their feet because it is a real show of thank you that we can bring it home to the Lamex and put in our best performance.”
After four points from the last two games, Sarll says he is pleased to see his side get what they deserve and praised his players for the way they have performed on the whole under his tenure.
“I think we have had some really good performances in the last ten games. Like I have said before, I don’t always think we have got what we should have got, but you get what you get in football and sometimes it rolls with you and sometimes it rolls away from you.
“I think the consistency of our approach to the game and the consistency to the teams organisation has been really pleasing so it is going to nice to bring that home to the Lamex and try get us off to a good start.”
