“Players will definitely be able to step up to this level”, says midfielder

Greg Tansey says Stevenage’s new players have the quality to compete at League 1 following the 4-3 defeat at home to Oldham Athletic.

The midfielder, starting his second season at the club, was partly to blame for Oldham’s third goal when a mix-up between himself and Luke Freeman at a Stevenage corner allowed Cristian Montano to steal the ball on the edge of his own box before making his way upfield and making it 3-1.

Tansey then scored before Filipe Morais made it 3-3 only for the Latics to get a late penalty to take all three points.

Speaking afterwards, Boro’s second goalscorer said: “There are positives to take. We scored three goals at home, but their goals are definitely ones we look at and feel really disappointed with.

“Two penalties and I’m partly to blame for the third one that broke away. I couldn’t really bring him down because I was on a booking. It is really, really disappointing but there are positives to take.

“Our new players coming in, some lads that haven’t played in league 1 before. They are very good players, [they are] players that will definitely be able to step up to this level.
