Sarll on the loss

Every supporter here for Stevenage would agree when I say it was absolutely madness. It was madness, absolutely madness.

You give a foul away in the final third against Lincoln and they have got a million set-plays. The penalty comes from giving a silly set-play away.

11 v 11 we were miles the better side. 11 v 10 they got themselves on top and 10 v 10 I thought we got back on top again.

It was very disappointing [in terms of] the reaction and the manner of how we controlled the game [after] being a man up.”

On Luke Wilkinson’s sending off

I need to see it again. I can understand why the referee has done what he has done in that moment. Luke is my player and a good man so I want to make sure I make the right diagnosis.

If he has shown petulance towards the opponent then it is a massive lack of discipline. No-one suffers more than his teammates because he’s a positive performer for us and they suffer because of [his red card]. He knows that, we are all human beings. He is a passionate boy, he has made a mistake and he will obviously have to take the consequences of that.
