Stevenage winger disappointed with the manner by which Boro lost at Oldham

Filipe Morais says Boro were disappointed with the way they conceded against Oldham Athletic, saying ‘the smallest guy with the face mask got the header’.

Stevenage fell to a 1-0 defeat at Boundary Park this afternoon thanks to a header from James Wesolowski who was wearing a protective face mask, and afterwards Morais said: “It was a scrappy game wasn’t it? We were just trying to take extra care on our set pieces, make sure we had good delivery and try to nick a goal on a set piece but it wasn’t to be.

“It was just one of them games and we’ll try and take the positives from it but we need to do a lot more to try and win games.

“They nicked a goal with Weso (James Wesolowski) driving from midfield and we’re really disappointed with that.

“The smallest guy with the face mask on gets a header so we’re not happy but that’s just the way the game went.

“We were getting balls wide and getting crosses into the box, at times our quality could have been a bit better but that was the disappointing thing really because we had people in the box who could score.”

Speaking about Ben Chorley’s late red card, which could see the centre-back miss three matches including the Everton FA Cup game, Morais said; “We’re really disappointed with that again as we’ve been warned about our discipline by the manager.

“We’re trying to take extra care, less bookings and especially red cards so Chorley himself will be disappointed but he feels a bit hard done by by it. He doesn’t feel it was a red, but I didn’t see it to be honest so I can’t comment.

“He’s disappointed, no-one ever wants to get sent off and missing games and especially the Everton game, but at the moment every game is like the Everton game for us because we’re down there and we need to dig ourselves out.”
