Westley pleased with attacking display
‘Nobody could have complained had we scored five’ the Stevenage manager says
Graham Westley said his side could have won by five goals at Bury on Saturday in a ‘well deserved victory’.
The Stevenage manager said he was disappointed his side conceded a second half penalty after Lawrie Wilson had brought down substitute Lenell John-Lewis, but added that nobody could have complained had Stevenage added a further two or three goals to those scored by Byron Harrison and Mark Roberts in the 2-1 win.
“It was disappointing to concede the goal, it would have been our fourth clean sheet on the bounce,” Westley said.
“We were obviously disappointed to see the penalty awarded; he’s gone across the front of Lawrie and I can half understand where the decision’s come from but at the same time the ball was running out of play and there was really no danger as the players have come across each other.

“We deserved to be 2-0 up [at the time] and certainly as the game wore on there was only one side which was going to score again and we could easily have had three, four [or] five.
“If it had got to three, four [or] five I don’t think anyone could have complained.”
