Manager Graham Westley has said the mood in the camp is different than it has been in recent weeks following the loss to Coventry City yesterday.
Stevenage narrowly went down to the loss after Coventry took the lead just after the half an hour mark, but we did have chances to get back into the game and can be slightly aggrieved that we didn't at least take a point from the match.
that said Westley was far more pleased with the overall performance of the players in the game, and he feels they have really listened to what he has been saying behind closed doors following some recent performances.
Speaking to Official Site Westley talked about what he could take out of the match, that did help offset the disappointment of seeing us slip to our seventh loss of the league campaign so far.
'The difference was not huge. It was much more like a Stevenage performance, the back four was solid and there was an organisation to our attacking play. I'm encouraged by the condition of the player's mind sets, I'm encouraged by where they're at in terms of their desire and determination and I'm encouraged by their will to learn and change. When as a manager you know that people finally want to take your voice on board, that gives you real optimism.'
The use of the word 'finally' is very telling there given the frustrations that the manager has aired previously this season, everybody just has to hope that the changing mindset now isn't too little too late and we can get our season back on track so we finish roughly where we aimed to this season as we continue to improve and grow the club.
Giving his own reaction following the game, Peter Hartley praised the gaffer for identifying perfectly what they needed to work on in the second half, and he felt the team really responded to those pointers perfectly and on another day, and with that touch more luck, he feels we'd have at least saved ourselves a point from the encounter.
