Manager Graham Westley has said Stevenage paid the price against Wolverhampton Wanderers because we allowed ourselves to be sucked in by the surroundings.
Stevenage went down two nil to Wolves yesterday at the Molineux Stadium, and the biggest problem for Westley in terms of how we played was that we allowed ourselves to be awe struck with the stadium and the atmosphere for too long and gifting Wolves the early goal gave us too much to do once we did respond and start playing our own game.
Speaking to the press, the gaffer explained that we were too in awe of the crowd, the situation and the environment in the first half 'which I'm furious about because I think the lads are better than that'.
'For 10 minutes it looked like we had forgotten everything that we came here with as a game plan and we gave them a leg up in the game.'
The second half was much better from the gaffer's perspective as we settled down and started to do our own thing and the stats reflect how we should've really got ourselves back into the match and at least came away with a point, but Wolves got the all important second goal on the day and it wasn't to be.
'How we didn't score God only knows.'
Westley adds that the Wolves goal led a charmed life in the match as we just didn't hit it how we should've done, but when we did sadly their keeper was up to the task, but for him the second goal was a big disappointment because he felt we were really on top and looked good to bag the equaliser as the game was petering towards an end.
Ultimately he feels we let them off the hook, and both goals frustrated him from a defensive point of view and if he was in the Wolves dressing room following he game, he'd have been breathing a huge sigh of relief.
