King: "We are always confident"

3 May 2017

Jack King says he and his teammates are ready for Saturday’s big game as Stevenage face Accrington in the final game of the league season.

A play-off place is still up for grabs as Boro sit just one place outside but King says all eyes will be on the opposition only.

“We are focused. We know all we can do is take care of our own business so we will be fully prepared for the game on Saturday and ready to get the result we need.

“We know we need a win to give ourselves a chance and that is all we can do. There are a couple of teams we can still catch so we have to remain hopeful and positive going into the game.

“If we are going to be out of the play-offs, 8th is the place to be. It gives us the next best chance to get in but we can’t worry about other teams.”

Although the past month hasn’t exactly gone to plan, King says the players are feeling positive ahead of the game.

“We are always confident. We haven’t had the results we would have liked recently but we still go into every game fully confident and we wouldn’t swap our team or players for anyone else.

“If we are at the top of our game and I am sure we will be, it should be enough to get the win.”

When King signed with the club on a permanent deal on transfer deadline day in January, Boro were 15th in the table and the play-offs seemed a long, long way off.

Although he acknowledges the good work done this season, King says the time for reflection can wait.

“When I came back at the end of January I probably wouldn’t have envisaged a promotion push but we went on a great run and put ourselves in position to have a go at it.

“It has been a good season but we won’t be reflecting on it just yet, we believe we can extend it for another few weeks.”
