Alex Revell would not be drawn on what comes next for him after Stevenage finished the season with victory at home to Cheltenham Town.

He was tasked with taking the team to the end of the season following the departure of Steve Evans and a draw at Oxford United was followed up with a 2-1 win over the Robins, one which sent the visitors down.

But even though the odds have suddenly tumbled in his favour to be given the job on a full-time basis again, he was staying tight lipped.

"I genuinely don't know what is round the corner," he said.

"For me, it has been a massive learning curve over the last three or four years, in understanding what I am as a person and as a coach and a manager.

"I've learned from some really good people and that's what I needed to do.

"I'll go home and reflect on what's been an emotional season because we've had that disappointment at missing out, but we should also be happy at where we've got to.

"I'll wake up on Sunday and sit and have a think and see what is going on.

"But at this moment, I'm here and and we've got to make decisions on people and we've got to certain things with the players we've got so far.

"I've got to get them ready for pre-season and I'll be doing all of that because ultimately that's my job until I'm told differently.

"I'm [only] looking to tonight. This was a day where we just wanted to win, for everyone, me as well.

"This club means a lot to me and winning the game means a lot.

"It's not about me, that's for other people to decide what goes on. I'm just proud of the way we've gone about our work this week.

"To follow on from the gaffer was going to be hard because of the man he is but we had to and I've tried to do that as best as I can, just to maintain what we have here."

Victory came in the 90th minutes through a cool finish from Nick Freeman, all after Kane Hemming's first-half penalty was cancelled out by Matty Taylor's header on 53 minutes.

"We got there in the end," said Revell.

"It was always going to be a difficult day because of their circumstances.

"It was frustrating in the first half because they came after us but that was always going to happen.

"But for a team that suffered the disappointment on not making the play-offs, which we all wanted, a draw at Oxford and a win over a Cheltenham team desperate to stay up, that shows the character of the players.

"We have a mindset that we are winners and we will keep going until we physically can't do it.

"I am really proud of every single one of them.

"We knew the first 10 minutes was going to be like it was. We wanted better possession and didn't want to give the ball away as much as we did but this was about winning a game."
