Steve Evans says there is no crisis at Stevenage despite picking up just two points in the last four League Two games.

The latest result in that sequence was a 2-0 defeat at Stockport County thanks to goals from Will Collar and Ryan Rydel.

But the Boro boss was quick to calm any concerns among the club's fans.

He said: "You have to break the games down in isolation, rather than in totality. We don’t look at games that we win in a row. 

"We were fortunate in some of those games that we won earlier in the season, like Stockport when we scored twice late to win. 

"We’ve got 16 games to go and we need to win 50 per cent of them, but if we do, we know what will happen. 

"That’s going to be tough but there is no crisis. We’ve only lost five league games all season. 

"If we’d had sat on the opening day of the season at Tranmere and said by the time these come to town at the end of February we’ll be second, we know what we’d have said. 

"Looking at the results today, you expect Leyton Orient to win but Bradford and Northampton can’t get over the line, it’s really, really tough. 

"I’ve got no complaints with the second half, we were really good in spells but not so good in the first." 

That first half show prompted three changes at half-time, all tactical.

Evans said: "First half we were second best but if you don’t do the basic art of defending and the basic tracking of runners, you’ll concede. 

"We were disappointed with our performance at half-time, you could see our reaction with the substitutions and the shape of the team, but when we did change it, we were a lot better. 

"We should certainly make it 1-1 before they make it 2-0.

"We got in good areas, Jordan Roberts should have done better, Luke Norris should get a head to a great Daryl Horgan cross, and they had gone six across the back at this point.

"They were more worried about us scoring than getting a second themselves. 

"It’s tough for us to take but we’ll see if we can bounce back. 

Part of the problem in the first half was more individual mistakes, while another was the injuries keeping key players out.

The Boro boss said: "We should have cleared our lines [for the first goal], put it out for a corner.

"We don’t, they put it back into a dangerous area and one of us turns his back on the cross and when you do that, the chances are you will concede. 

"This is a really good Stockport side and it is nice to come away from a game where I don’t think the referee has had an influence on us not winning it. 

"It’s more of a concern that we are missing some big players [with injuries]. 

"We’ve got big players coming back but that doesn’t excuse those players that were on the pitch. 

"We learned a lot about individuals today."
