Stevenage Boro manager Mark Stimson's exclusive monthly column for The Comet
MARCH has been a very busy and tiring month for us with so many games played.
The points tally at the end of the month, including this week's game against Kidderminster, is not what we would have liked or hoped for.
We had two very disappointing displays against Oxford United and Crawley during the month.

On the plus side, we had a 'derby' win over Woking and this result meant we completed the double over them.
I'm sure the supporters, like the players, really enjoyed that feeling.

We also played the two Trophy semi-finals against Grays Athletic and reached the final.
And it got even better when it was eventually confirmed the final will be at Wembley.
The club will go down in the history books as one of the first two to play in a competitive game at Wembley. That is something for the players and fans to be proud of and really look forward to.
Overall, at the end of the month, we have still got a chance of making the play-offs and must try to take that opportunity.
You can never look back; you've just got to look forward. We're playing Morecambe at home this Saturday.
Everyone has got to be united and together. If we do that, you never know what can happen.
That was shown in the second half against Kidderminster when the crowd and the players lifted each other.
The vocal backing from the fans and the performance from the players were really good. We were more like our old selves.
In the last month, Alan Julian and Ronnie Henry are two players to have performed well.
Paul Hakim also scored his first goal and put in a very good performance at York.
There are still a few weeks of the season to go and prizes to be played for.
If you had said at the start of the season that the play-offs were still possible with seven games to go as well as a cup final to look forward to, most teams would take that.
We must really go for it now and have no regrets.
The players realised that in the second half against Kidderminster and it's the same from now on.
