Westley: Errors only prove costly if you don’t learn from them
Graham Westley expects his players will learn from the mistake of conceding from a late set piece as Stevenage dropped two points at Cambridge United.
Boro extended their unbeaten run to seven matches following Saturday’s draw, but they had to make do with just one point rather than three after Robbie Simpson scored a late equaliser in a move that stemmed from a long throw.
“You want to see the games out, but we’ve got a lot of young players who are probably learning to play with a bit of pressure and expectation on us, which is good,” Westley said.
“We made mistakes; they only prove costly if you don’t learn from them, and I think a lot of our young players will learn from some of the errors that crept in.

“I think the boys worked hard to earn the point. It’s an away game, it was a resilient performance.
“I think [the game] was probably quite clean for us. We defended well, there wasn’t much physicality in the game.

“I’m sure the lads will come through quite well. I’m not expecting any major problems in regards to [injuries ahead of] Tuesday night.”
