Stevenage Paper Review

7 January 2013

How the press reported our 2-1 defeat at Gresty Road

The Sentinel


CREWE manager Steve Davis admitted his players were hurting after Boro bounced back to inflict the Railwaymen’s first League One defeat at Gresty Road since October.

Chuks Aneke looked to have put the Alex on track for their fifth successive home league victory when he swept them in front on the half-hour mark.

But the visitors netted twice in five minutes after the break through Lucas Akins and Marcus Haber to stun Crewe and end Boro’s three-game hunt for a victory.

Davis said: “The players are all down and very quiet, which is brilliant to see.

“They expect to play games and win now, which is a great change of attitude over a short period of time.

“I was more than happy with the performance. It was good enough to win the game. We just lost control for a short period in the second half which cost us.”


The Comet


Gary Smith says Stevenage put in their most complete performance for some time to win at Crewe on Saturday.

Boro came from behind as Lucas Akins’ goal cancelled out Chuks Aneke’s first-half strike before Marcus Haber struck the winner, and after the game Smith said his was the better side.

“There were some terrific displays and we thoroughly deserved the victory,” Smith said.


The Sun


MARCUS HABER netted the winner as Stevenage bounced back to inflict a rare home defeat on the Railwaymen.

Chuks Aneke looked to have put Crewe in the driving seat for their fifth straight win.

But two goals in five second-half minutes from Lucas Akins and Haber ended Boro’s three-game losing streak.

Delighted Boro boss Gary Smith said: “I don’t think we have been playing that badly.”

But Alex chief Steve Davis said: “The players are all down and very quiet which is brilliant to see. They expect to win now which is a great change of attitude over a short period of time.”
