Stevenage boss ‘feels a lot better this week’ after win over Gillingham

Teddy Sheringham hopes there is more to come from his side after Saturday’s FA Cup win over Gillingham.

Boro went into the match having won just one of their last 11 games and without a clean sheet since the victory over Hartlepool in August, but they eased past their League One opponents 3-0 to put their name in the hat for tonight’s second round draw.

Stevenage’s boss said: “I hope there’s a lot more to come. We are still building. I didn’t enjoy last week [5-1 defeat to Oxford] without a doubt and sometimes you have to be smacked in the face with certain things. I was far more pleased with the performance this week.

“It’s a stupid game, football, isn’t it? I feel a lot better this week than last week I can tell you that.

“We needed to bounce back. I said we were very, very bad last week. But I also analysed the game on Saturday night and throughout last Sunday, and realised that a lot of it could be cut out.

“We took advantage of the way we started and the way Gillingham failed to. We got a leg up and it went from there.”

Sheringham added: “You can’t get too high when things go well, and likewise you can’t get too carried away when things don’t go your way and get too sensationalist.

“Everybody gets carried away with sensationalising things. I’m not saying we were better than people were saying we were last week – if anything it could have been a lot worse – but after I analysed it, I told the lads things were easy to fix.

“I’m not going to tell you what I analysed or what I saw, that’s for me and my team to know, but we were better at it this week.”
