Video & Quotes from the boss...

  • Sarll on a good, tough point…

“It was two committed groups of men under two managers that probably value commitment and desire as a priority from their players - it kind of met with an almighty bang in the middle.

“I don’t think it was particularly pleasing on the eye but you have to meet fire with fire sometimes and I thought the boys met fire with fire today.

“I am just disappointed that we didn’t give too many chances and the goal we gave away was from our own making.

“I thought the back four were terrific for the most part, as was the goalkeeper, who took in some terrific crosses to take the pressure off us. We just need to apply a bit more offensive quality to the game.

“It is a good point and I want us to be a bit more steady and consistent. It has been a good week, two wins and a draw is very promising and I thought King and Wilkinson at centre half was particularly positive.

“We just have to lay good foundations because the next set of fixtures are as tough as today's."

  • Sarll on the impact Jack King has had on the team...

"We have been hugely unfortunate not having Jack. Jack is a massive football player for this club, a massive player in his influence, composure and what he does and his decision-making.

"He is so important to us and brings a lovely balance to the raw destructive traits of a Wilkinson or a Franks, he just gives us a reassurance.

“We will take the point, utilise the experience and move on but be better for it."

  • Sarll on a great performance from the fans…

“It was an all-round performance really because I thought the supporters were absolutely terrific, absolutely terrific.

“We felt as one again. It didn’t feel like we were fighting each other, it didn’t feel like there was a difference in expectation, it just felt that Stevenage as a whole was back again."
