A bitterly disappointed Teddy Sheringham reflected on another last-minute defeat as York beat Stevenage 2-1 at Bootham Crescent in the dying seconds.

Having been 1-0 down at half-time, Boro got back into the game and almost won it only to see the points disappear right at the end.

“It is a horrible game this game when you lose a goal like that in the last minute again.

“Even when we got back to 1-1, we have got enough experience out there to say ‘let’s tuck in and make sure somebody doesn’t come running through the middle like that’ – we need to be better at things like that. It is not good enough.

To make matters worse, Ronnie Henry pulled up ahead of the game and had to miss out whilst Michael Tonge was forced off early in the first half. 

"He (Michael Tonge) has been a massive influence since he has come in this season, it is a big blow. It didn't alter our shape too much as Coxy came straight in but these things are all chipping away at our staff, as such."

The defeat leaves Boro in a precarious position near the foot of the table and the boss says he shares the fans agony.

“I feel their pain. It is tough going at the moment for us.

“I don’t think we looked like losing that game one bit, even though we were 1-0 down in the first half it felt like we were on the up, got back into the game and there was only going to be one winner.

“It felt like it was, it nearly was with O’Connor’s chance but switching off in the last couple of minutes to score again, it is like a dagger through the heart.”
