A clearly disappointed Teddy Sheringham was a man of few words at the end of the game with Northampton.

Stevenage had looked the better side in the first half and had gone in 1-0 up thanks to Steven Schumacher’s first of the season.

However two goals in the second period form the hosts, both of which came in freak circumstances, consigned Stevenage to defeat.

And Sheringham was in no mood to disect the game immediately after.

He said: “I thought we played very well. I felt we were in control so to come away losing is very disappointing.

“To let another team in when we you are in control, not overly dominant but I felt we were the the better team in the game, it’s very disappointing to come away with nothing.”

He claimed Schumacher’s goal was “great” from their point-of-view but there was not enough of those moments in the game.

Sheringham went on: “We had a lot of the ball but didn’t create enough chances. The glaring one is the one that came in from the left-hand side and there was no-one getting in the box to finish it off.

“They go up the other and get a goal so that’s a disappointing thing.”
