Head Coach Ross Embleton looks ahead to this afternoon’s game against Stevenage.

The Boss is hopeful his squad build consistency after improved performances in the past two and a half games.

“We are happier with the way we have played in the last two and a half games. We had a difficult first half when we faced Northampton at home but I think since then we have put in some good performances which is something we have been searching for.

I’m pleased on that front, obviously disappointed on Tuesday night not to come out of the game with more points; points I felt we certainly deserved. There were a number of positives to take out so now we have to go into this next game and make it three and a half positive performances.

The thing we have all been discussing has been about trying to build consistency. Consistency isn’t two and a half games; it is longer term – bigger plans and then you make sure you get the results on the back of those performances.”

Embleton is looking to leave the Lamex Stadium with three points.

“I feel there’s a belief in the group that we are heading in a direction with the way that we are going about our games and we will be embracing the challenge of whoever we face at the weekend.

We will be embracing the challenge of facing Stevenage who have added to their group in recent weeks, but we will be heading out there with a belief in ourselves to go and get three points.”

Stevenage are managed by Graham Westley, who took over in December after a caretaker-period from Mark Sampson,  following the departure of Dino Maamria in September.

“It will be a different one to the game earlier in the season. It’s a different team, different manager, different personnel – even in that short period, including the January transfer window, it’s a different team to the one we played back then.

We understand as staff and players what is going to be coming our way and the challenge Stevenage will throw at us. It will be very different to what we experienced before.”
