Boro’s boss says Jesse Joronen’s goal was lucky, but result wasn’t

Teddy Sheringham says beating Wycombe Wanderers was no fluke, adding that his side is playing like a team that is not in the lower reaches of the League Two table.

The Stevenage boss saw his side beat the Chairboys 2-1 thanks to a freak goal from just outside his own area from goalkeeper Jesse Joronen before Armand Gnanduillet nodded in from a corner in the second half.

Speaking afterwards, Sheringham said that although Joronen’s goal was a fluke, the overall result wasn’t.

“There was more than a little bit of luck [in the goal]. You don’t expect to be scoring goals like that,” Sheringham said.

“We’ll take it. When you’re struggling at the wrong end of the division we’ll take it.

“We played some decent stuff and had to work really hard to get the result in the end, it’s pleasing all over,” Sheringham said. “We’re trying to enjoy ourselves. It doesn’t always go to plan, but the more you work at things and get unity among the players you hope that things are turning.

“The way we played today it wasn’t a fluke result. Last week [at Exeter] and this week, you wouldn’t believe we were down at the bottom the way that we’re playing.

“That’s testament to my players; long may it continue.”
