Reaction: Duff on Stevenage

4 May 2019

After seeing his team end the League Two season with a 2-0 defeat at Stevenage, boss Michael Duff has called on his side to be better away from home when the next campaign gets going in August.

Two second half goals in quick succession saw Joe Martin and Jordan Gibson help Boro to a 2-0 final day victory at the Lamex Stadium.

At the end of a campaign which saw Duff installed as boss in September, the man in the dugout felt poor decision making proved costly.

"The two chances they had in the first half were just two whacks down the pitch, bad decisions from us, and the goal was a set play," Duff said post-match.

"First contact, second contact, goal - and then Scott [Flinders] made a bad decision to throw it, so we were the makers of our own downfall today.

"We moved the ball well first half. There were pockets that we wanted to work on that we have worked on we didn't quite get into, so I didn't think there was a lot in the game personally.

"I'm not that bothered about the result now. I'd rather talk about the progress that has been made, because the last six months has been tough. The players have all bought in. They've been unbelievable in regards of they've stuck together, and they've come out the other end.

"Yes we're disappointed that we've lost the game because we wanted to win the game. The players know we need to be better away from home. We can be as good at home and as bad away, which is a mentality thing that we need to get to the bottom of. Generally I thought it was an okay performance."
