Curtis Obeng has yet to taste defeat in a Stevenage shirt

Curtis Obeng says Stevenage ‘have come a long way’ in their last six matches, but added that there is more to be done if Boro are to beat the drop.

The full-back, who is on loan at the club from Swansea City, put in a good, attacking display at Carlisle United today, often leaving his marker, former Premier League full-back Pascal Chimbonda, in his trail.

The 25-year-old has, like fellow defender Bira Dembele, yet to taste defeat in a Boro shirt, as the arrival of the duo has seen the club go on a six-match unbeaten run to move to within one point of safety.

Speaking exclusively to the Comet after today’s match, the full-back says that things are going in the right direction for his side.

“Every point counts so we’ll take it,” Obeng said.

“We weren’t at our best today by any means. We know we can produce a lot more than that but I think it’s very important that when we don’t win we don’t lose. Away from home we’ll definitely take the point.
