Manager Teddy Sheringham wasn’t best pleased to see Stevenage go two goals behind early on in today’s game against Exeter, but he was pleased with the spirit and the character the team showed to come back from two nil down and then three two down to take a valuable point on our travels.

Speaking to the Official Site following the three all draw, the gaffer explained.

‘I think it was a good performance apart from perhaps two or three lapses in concentration. It was a sloppy start after what? One, two, three minutes to go behind, it was far too easy. Apart from that, we got into the game early on, passed it nicely and opened them up a little bit but didn`t take our chances. The second one was just a killer blow that was very harsh I felt but when you don`t start good enough, that is what happens. If you give people an inch, they will take a little bit more and we gave ourselves a mountain to climb.’

With a mountain to climb, we managed it with goals coming from Parrett and Kennedy before we again fell behind, leaving Whelpdale to score at the death.

One thing is for sure, the Sky Sports cameras were treated to some nice play and some quality goals on the day as well.

‘To come back from 2-0 and to get back to 2-2 was great from my team. I was very pleased to end up getting a result and getting a point out of that I think is rewarding. You don`t always get what you deserve but I felt we did deserve something today.’

With Armand Gnanduillet making his debut in the match following his arrival from Chesterfield the other day, Sheringham also went on to say that he felt he had a good debut given the little time he’d had to adjust to the lads and what he wants from him, so hopefully they’ll be more to come when he gets more training sessions under his belt.

‘I thought he was very good. He gave us a focal point to work off, he caused them problems as well and I thought he did very well. As a debut, I was very pleased.’

Moving back to the overall result and a point from the St James Park trip, Sheringham ended his interview by saying that although we drew a line under the losing run, there is obviously plenty still to do.

‘Of course. We are not at the end of the tunnel by any means but it is great to get a point and to stop that rot. My team dug deep, kept going, kept trying and I thought we deserved the goal that we got at the end.’
