Sheringham: I feel Stevenage fans’ pain

Teddy Sheringham says losing in injury time to York City was a ‘horrible’ feeling.
York took a first-half lead through Kenny McEvoy before Keith Keane pulled Stevenage back level with just over 10 minutes of the match remaining.
The Minstermen also had two goals ruled out during the match while Boro’s Aaron O’Connor saw his shot cleared off the line before, in injury time, York substitute Danny Galbraith ran through the heart of the Boro half and fired past Chris Day to hand the League Two basement side all three points.
“It’s a horrible game this game when you lose a goal like that in the last minute again,” Sheringham said.
“I don’t think York really did anything to trouble us. We kind of gifted them a first goal in the first half. We’ve done well to get back into the game, and have pushed on hard to get back into it.
“Then when we’ve got the equaliser it felt like there would only be one winner. That makes it like a dagger through the heart.
“It’s not funny is it? I feel [the fans’] pain. It’s tough going at the moment for us.”
Sheringham added: “I made it quite clear these are must-win games, or at least must-not-lose. Lose and it gives York impetus and gives them a feeling that they can get away from the bottom.
“That’s what you don’t want. Even when we got back to 1-1 we’ve got enough experience out there to say ‘let us tuck in and make sure someone doesn’t come running through the middle like that’. We need to be better like that, it’s not good enough.”
