TEAM TALK v STEVENAGE H, 19/10/13

18 October 2013

Boss ready for home return...

WE HAVE so much belief in what we are doing, and this was evident at Colchester last weekend where we stuck to our guns to get our reward in the end with a late equaliser.

One look at the stats from that game will show you how much we dominated, so it was a relief to see Andy Taylor's free-kick find the net with virtually the last kick.

Now we turn our attention to the challenge that Stevenage will present to us. Looking at their results it would appear that they have made a slow start to the season, but they have won their last two games and I watched them beat MK Dons in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

On that occasion, they did well in the second half and deserved the victory. They then followed this up in their last game by beating Brentford.

They have a good squad of players, so it will be a tough game, there is no question of that. They will come here with a bit of momentum and keen to make life as difficult as possible for us.

We know that they will be strong and physical, but the also have players in there who can play and open teams up.

That said, I have been pleased with our performances. We constantly analyse them and the areas that we can do better. We are creating chances, which is nice to see, and also have that belief in the way that we want to play.

As a club we are conscious not to judge players too early. We look at their potential and how we can develop them. It is a system that has worked for us over the years and continues to be the case.

We are looking forward to getting back into action on home soil. Our displays here so far, with the exception of Preston, have been good and now we want to get back into winning games in front of our own fans.
