Keith Keane admits that Stevenage "need to sort it quickly" after York scored a last minute winner to condemn Boro to defeat.

The midfielder who scored a spectacular equaliser says there isn't a worse way to lose a football match.

“It is the highs and lows of football, that is why the neutral loves it but when you are out there and on the wrong end of it, it is the worst way to lose.

“The first half wasn’t good enough; I think they were much the better team personally. We deserved to be a goal down but at the same time it was definitely an avoidable goal which is frustrating.

“We came in, had a few home truths given to us, livened up in the second half and I think we were the dominant team. I scored, Azza nearly scored, Charlie nearly scored, we felt in control and then we go and gift them a goal.

“It seems to be the pattern of our games these days which isn’t good enough, we need to sort it quickly.”

The final few minutes of the game were of high drama which ultimately, Stevenage came out on the wrong end of.

Keane was frank in his assessment and says the players are eager to put things right.

“It shouldn’t happen, we train every day and we are professionals. We need to get better, we need to improve and we will do. We will put it right, just hopefully sooner rather than later.

“The lads are frustrated, very disappointed. They know they haven’t done themselves, the fans or the club justice and they are determined to put it right.”

With confidence clearly low amongst the team, Keane says they need to get back to basics.

“When your confidence is low you just have to get back to doing your basics right. Once you get your basics right, your confidence begins to grow and your making all your passes, things start to come easier and everyone starts playing better.”
