Alex Revell was left disappointed by a 2-1 defeat at Bradford City on Saturday as a first half lead was reversed in the second...
After taking the lead through Elliott List, the home side Bantams came on strong after the interval to score twice through Lee Novak.
“It is a disappointing result. I think we huffed and puffed at times and in the first half, to come in 1-0 up, we rode our luck a little bit but football can be like that. In the second half we looked laboured at times but as a positive we still looked like we were going to score goals.”
“To concede two second half is disappointing, but we have had a tough week and the lads that have gone out there today have given absolutely everything. We came up short and we have to go back now and pick up the pieces and get ready for next week.”
Stevenage’s preparations were torn to shreds after the news about three isolated COVID-19 tests within the camp, but when asked whether or not the disruption had an effect on the team’s performance, the Manager wasn’t prepared to use it as an excuse.
“It is hard to tell. We probably looked like a team towards the end that hasn’t had as much training as we would have liked to this week. We haven’t trained since Wednesday and it is tough because of the (change to) preparation but we will look back and see where the mistakes are made and that we are better for it next week.
“Overall the result is what it is and we can look back and learn from it and that is the most important thing. We were coming here full of confidence and the lads have put in an unbelievable shift but it has been a tough week but now have to reflect and go again against Salford.
“This week we will have a full week ready to go and build again and making sure we are prepared for Saturday.”
