Robbie Stockdale's Post-Match Reaction - Stevenage

24 November 2021

Manager Robbie Stockdale says he was pleased with many aspects of Tuesday night’s dominate performance against Stevenage but was left disappointed that his side couldn’t secure three deserved points.

Speaking after the game, he commented: “If I look at the critical aspects of our game then the two goals conceded are two poor goals - I didn’t think they had to work for them particularly hard. That’s it.

“I think the rest of the game were very good. We created several clear cut chances and had 26 attempts on goal, which is enough chances to win two or three games, and unfortunately we weren’t quite clinical enough to do it. I can be critical of the players a lot of the time but tonight, on the main, I thought they were very good.”

He continued: “They’ve [Stevenage] come off the pitch shaking our hands saying how they heck did they get a draw out of it. It’s one of those really frustrating nights where we dominate every aspect of the game but unfortunately we don’t get what we deserve.

“I usually say to the players that you usually do get what you deserve in games so if you do concede two sloppy goals then it gives you a mountain to climb, but we certainly had the opportunities to win it."

The Gaffer added: “There were so many pleasing aspects and I’ll look back at the game as I always do tonight and we’ll review it, but my first reaction is that I was really pleased with how we played but we didn’t get what we wanted and that was a win.

“We’ll look at it and we’ll look where we can improve but again I think my overriding feeling is one of real disappointment for the players that they didn’t get the three points that I think they deserved tonight.”
