Teddy Sheringham says Stevenage are not getting the rub of the green in matches.

Boro lost 2-1 at Mansfield Town on Saturday, the club’s fifth consecutive match without a win.

But the Stevenage boss believes his side were harshly denied a penalty when Charlie Lee’s volley was blocked in the area by a hand in the air just a week after his defender Fraser Franks was controversially penalised for a handball against Leyton Orient.

Sheringham said: “I don’t think it was anything like last week’s penalty. Last week Fraser’s hands were down by his side and we get the penalty given against us.

“This one is fully charged, it’s up above his head, fully seen by everyone else in the ground that it’s hit his hand.

“From my point of view if you’re giving it last week it’s a stonewall penalty, without a doubt.

“It probably changes the whole vibe of the game and makes us feel a little more comfortable about what we’re doing. We’re not getting the rub of the green at the moment.

“We’re creating chances, keeping the ball, doing good things out on the football pitch so it was very disappointing.”
