Graham Westley enjoying Stevenage home comforts

22 December 2014

Stevenage manager Graham Westley believes the Lamex Stadium is becoming the fortress it once was after Charlie Lee's late goal gave his side a 1-0 win over Exeter City.

Lee, thrust into the game after 15 minutes following an injury to Lee Barnard, kept his composure after both sides had passed up some excellent opportunities to inflict Exeter's first defeat in nine league games.

While Boro have struggled to pick up points on the road this season, they have now won seven of the 11 matches that they have played at home in the league.

Westley said: "We've done a lot of work on the training ground to make sure that we regain that Stevenage attitude of being a strong side at the end of games.

"You can see that the players have done extra strength work and you could see in the last 15 minutes today that we were really quite determined to make sure we got the three points.

"Our home ground is starting to become that fortress again - we're starting to get results here and I think that's now six wins in nine here now.

"That's much more like the Stevenage of old - we want to eradicate the defeats and the draws obviously but it's a step in the right direction.

"It was a good performance on the whole, we knew they were a form side and have been going well and we knew we had to be on our game to get the right result."
