Steve told the club’s official web-site: “I am not sure if those late goals against Doncaster and Shrewsbury affected some of them.

“It can play on their minds in games. When a game is close going into the later stages, you can become anxious and a bit edgy. I think that happened against Shrewsbury.

“That was a big game for us and we had missed a number of chances in the second half after playing really well. It was 1-1 going into the final minutes and maybe the Doncaster experienced played on their minds a bit.

He added: “When you have been in that type of situation, it is important that you learn from the experience. You have to be mentally strong and not have those doubts in your mind and it is something young players have to learn from.”
