Westley not worried over slow start

Graham Westley insists Stevenage are not disheartened following back-to-back league defeats as the Boro boss remains adamant that his side can handle themselves in League One.

The 5-1 home thrashing of Sheffield Wednesday earlier this month showed what Westley's team are capable of, but subsequent losses against Notts County and Carlisle have acted as something of a reality-check for the Hertfordshire club.

And ahead of the visit of Scunthorpe on Saturday, Westley said: "We always take stock of where we are at in the big scheme of things, and in the big scheme of things we are 13th after promotion last year. We are top of the four promoted clubs, which suggests we are doing something right."

He continued: "But we are not complacent about that fact by any stretch because we obviously want to do better.

"We are getting ourselves used to a new league, learning new grounds and opponents and we have had a steady, if not spectacular, start, so 13th place represents that.

"There is no point worrying what might have been if we had have been a little bit better in the last couple of games or if we had won more points earlier on in the season. We are where we are and all we can affect is our results going forward."
