Jamie Jones believes Stevenage’s upturn in form, with five points from their last three games, will ‘demoralise’ their rivals in the battle to stay in League Two.

Boro are closing in on safety following Saturday’s victory at Luton Town and Tuesday’s goalless draw with Yeovil, and those two matches have given Stevenage back-to-back clean sheets in the league for the first time in 16 months.

Speaking after the victory, the 27-year-old goalkeeper told the Comet: “We’re on a little unbeaten run now.

“It’s three games and it demoralises the teams below us when they look at that.

“That’s five points from the last three and we’re looking to Saturday [away to Notts County] to build on that.

“It was important that we didn’t lose [against Yeovil] more than anything.

“We did want the three points to stretch a bit more away from the bottom two, but the main thing for me and the back four was to not concede and then we would have had the chance to win if that was the case.

“It didn’t happen and we didn’t have that many chances, but we’ll take the point.”

Jones, who arrived at the club from Preston North End in January, added: “They didn’t have many chances. They had a feeble shot second half but I think they came with a plan to stop us playing and it worked in a sense.

“They came for the 0-0, you could see by the action of some of the players after the game that’s what they wanted and that’s what they got.”
