Stevenage boss Darren Sarll was happy with a point away at Cambridge United.

The goalless draw sees Boro remain fourth in the League Two table, but now six points away from Portsmouth in third and final automatic promotion place.

Following the game, which failed to live up to the heights of last Saturday’s 3-0 win over Portsmouth, Sarll said: “What people saw today is probably 75 percent of the season, it’s not always fireworks and show ponies and Harlem Globetrotter stuff.

“It’s grind it out, dig in, be organised and keep clean sheets.

“I’m delighted with a point, I’m just as pleased with one point today as I was [last] Saturday with three.

“Our level of performance was reduced and sometimes when your level of performance isn’t there and you can’t get it there for whatever reason, human nature normally, I’m just happy to take a point away from home [and] a cleansheet.

“It can’t be great every week.

“If it was great every week we wouldn’t be in division four, we’d be a lot higher up.”

The main talking point of the game from Boro’s point of view was an injury to Tom Pett. A deep cut to the attacking midfielder’s leg suffered in the second half saw him stretchered from the field.

“We have suffered more dramatic injuries to the side and that’s starting to take a toll,” added Sarll.

“I’m happy to walk away with a good day’s work and a point extra on the board.”
