No complaints from Graham Westley after Stevenage draw at Burton Albion

31 March 2015

Stevenage manager Graham Westley had no complaints with the result as his side picked up a 1-1 draw at Sky Bet League 2 leaders Burton Albion on Monday night.

Boro took the lead against the Brewers in the 12th minute through a Tom Naylor own goal, but another own goal from Stevenage defender Bira Dembele just before half-time ensured a share of the points.

Chances came and went after the break, but Westley thought both sides got what they deserved in difficult conditions.

Talking to The Comet, Westley said: “I’d sooner have taken three points. It would have been one of those games if we’d have come away 1-0 victors scoring from a set play showing resilience it would have been a good victory.

“After the break they came out and we had to weather a storm. We had to dig deep, organise and show resilience.”

Resilience has been a staple of Stevenage’s away form of late, with last night’s point making it five unbeaten on the road - keeping them firmly in touch with the Play-Off pack, two points adrift of seventh-placed Plymouth Argyle.

“You have to keep grinding your points out to improve your position. The best sides always talk about not getting beaten on their travels. We’re doing that at the moment and that’s a positive.”
