Graham Westley has taken the step of praising Stevenage's exceptional fans despite our last three matches, because he knows they have their part to play ahead of the game against Coventry.
Speaking to the Official Site ahead of the game Westley talked about our upcoming game, but also had words for the fans who have stuck with the club despite our current run of form.
'They're a good side, I've them twice. They've done well and I'm under no illusions of the size of the task.'
Westley knows, especially given our form at the moment that joint bottom Coventry will be a huge task for us. Their points total and league position does not accurately reflect their form because they started with a minus 10 points total.
But he also knows that this squad has proved that one it's day it can overcome anybody, and it's that which we need to focus on, and not substandard results recently.
'We know we can do that. We really are going to get better, there's no question about that. We're more than capable of winning the game at the weekend.'
Westley also had praise for his opposite number at the weekend, Steven Pressley who he faces for the first time in the dug out but what's important for our gaffer is that we now have three home games on the trot, and he believes that with the fans behind the team we can change our fortunes again.
'I think they've (the fans) been exceptional since I've been back at the club. They've given me a massive honeymoon period and shown a great intelligence, which is what Stevenage fans are all about.'
What pleases Westley most is he knows the fans can see that it's a plan, a progression and whilst it won't always work perfectly during 90 minutes, he's trying to grow the club again properly and that will take time.
It's step by step, and whilst having the patience of the fans, he knows the team still need to show them that there is something to believe in, that there is progress and light at the end of the tunnel.
