Steven Schumacher is not hiding from the fact that Stevenage’s early season league form under new manager Teddy Sheringham has been patchy but the midfield general believes a win at Yeovil Town tomorrow (Saturday) can propel the team towards bigger and better things.

Boro are agonisingly close to the League Two drop zone after 16 games, 20th to be exact, and still winless on the road in any competition this season.

Yeovil are also in the doldrums having not won since mid-September, a nine-game run which has left them languishing in the league’s bottom two.

With stakes high even at this relatively early stage of the campaign, three points in Somerset would ease the pressure.

Schumacher said: “We’ve not really been good enough this year. We’ve not scored enough goals and let too many in and it’s as simple as that.

“We’ve played a lot of games where we’ve been the better side and we feel as though we should have got more points than what we’ve actually got but there’s also been times where we’ve not been at it.

“The league table doesnt really lie but we have time to put it right starting with a big three points at Yeovil.”

The former Everton man’s form just looks to be coming to the boil, despite a few niggling injuries, having scored in both of his last two games, his first two strikes for the club.

Nevertheless, he is targetting better individual performances to help his team along.

He continued: “I’m getting there now. I didn’t have a great preseason, I missed a lot of games with an injury and it always takes a bit of time to get up and running.

“Scoring in a couple of games in a row is good and I feel like I’m getting near a level I should be playing at. The goals are nice but I want those goals to create a few more wins for the team.”
