Stevenage boss Darren Sarll believes his side’s two 1-0 wins away from home so far in SkyBet League Two have come at a cost.

Boro’s impressive victories at Barnet and Cheltenham were through the hard work the players put in to achieve victory – and the highly-rated Sarll thinks the efforts may have taken valuable energy from the players.

Speaking to CometSport he explained: “I said our two 1-0 wins away from home took a lot out of us.

“There was a lot of sacrifice to get those wins away from home.

“I’m pleased with how we’ve done on the road but it also means our young players get a chance.”

Sarll has been true to his word as tyros Terence Vancooten and Kevin Toner played in the 1-1 draw against Crawley on Tuesday.

The Boro boss said: “Your career has to start somewhere and I like to think we start players careers here at Stevenage earlier than they would elsewhere.

“Young players know they will get an opportunity here.”

Stevenage are on the road once again when they travel to Swindon Town on Saturday.

They will be boosted by the return of combative midfielder Dale Gorman who comes back from suspension.

Sarll added: “His return give us a ‘proper’ central midfield player.”
