Cuthbert: "We will turn the corner"

20 September 2019

Stevenage skipper Scott Cuthbert says that he and his squad are “desperate” to get a result and put an end to the Club’s poor start to the season...

Having been in-and-out of the team with injuries to start the campaign, Cuthbert has yet to fully settle into the side himself and he admits that it has been a painful couple of months.

“It has been very difficult from the start. I could sit here and rhyme off all different excuses under the sun as to why we are sitting at bottom of the league and not won a game but what I would say about the place is that the boys are hurting and want to get a result.

“We have been working hard on and off the field to right the wrongs and it is going to come. We have got to stay positive and keep believing in what we are doing and the way that Mark and Revs want us to play, which is a really positive way of playing, they want us to get on the ball, to attack teams and to score goals.

“It will happen and we will turn the corner if we keep on working hard, keep listening and keep taking all the meetings in - it is going to turn.”

Under new Caretaker Manager Mark Sampson, Boro have narrowly lost two out of two games but Cuthbert says that the squad are eager to get a victory for the new man in charge.

“He is a very relatable guy and somebody that the lads in the changing room have a lot of respect for.

“He has taken over in difficult circumstances and him and Revs are trying to get their ideas across. It is a new way of learning for the players as we have been used to a certain way of playing over the past 18 months. He has been so positive and I speak on behalf of the lads when I say we are absolutely desperate to get a good run of games going to help him keep the job for longer.

“The lads are working hard and looking forward to the weekend against Forest Green who are a good team but we are positive that we can get a result.”
