Revell: "We all deserved it"

With his team in need of a goal, it was veteran goalscorer and on-the-pitch captain Alex Revell who stepped up when in mattered the most...

Following a tough game in which Stevenage did everything but score, it took until the 72nd minute for the breakthrough to come as Revell latched onto Gibson's cross before turning the ball home.

Revell says it was a credit to the team that they stayed patient throughout the contest.

“We needed that. From the start we showed a real intent to go and win the game. Maybe we should have been ahead in the first half. When it does not go for you, you have to keep plugging away, and keep believing.

"Sometimes if you do not score, desperation sets in. But, we kept going and kept believing.

“It was a great cross from Jordan (Gibson), and it was nice to get the goal to win the game on a personal note. As a team, we all deserved it.

“We have worked really hard this week, and looked at what we did not do against Forest Green, and what we need to do. 

"It was good to get the win, and to keep up there chasing the pack.”

QPR loanee Ilias Chair wowed supporters with an eye-catching Man of the Match performance on his debut but Revell was just as impessed with his defensive work and endeavour.

“Ilias (Chair) was magnificent. Not only his quality on the ball, but his work rate off it. It definitely gave us an outlet. He is a different player to Ben Kennedy, who went the other way.

“Kennedy has been a really good servant here and has gone to see what he can do elsewhere, but we have brought in another player with real quality and desire to work hard for the team.

“You see a lad coming down from a higher level, you look at the work rate and he has given it in abundance today."
