SARLL’S TROOPS ARE NOW THE REAL DEAL

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

STEVE­NAGE boss Dar­ren Sarll said this week that no-one is ever sat­is­fied in foot­ball, but Boro fans at the Lamex Sta­dium may dis­agree af­ter wit­ness­ing the per­for­mance of the sea­son.

Three goals and three points was ex­actly what the doc­tor or­dered af­ter a tough week, and Steve­nage are prov­ing time and again they are real pro­mo­tion con­tenders.

Former Non-League for­ward Matt God­den was su­perb with his Jamie Vardy-like press­ing, com­bined with an eye for goal, see­ing him net yet again this year.

As for Pom­pey, they lack a cut­ting edge and real at­tack­ing flair to nail down an au­to­matic pro­mo­tion place, de­spite pre­vi­ously win­ning three on the bounce.

It is all the more con­fus­ing there­fore that Conor Chap­lin re­mains an im­pact sub.

But with a fluffed penalty high­light­ing per­haps a tad too much ar­ro­gance, Chap­lin isn’t do­ing him­self any favours to grab the start­ing spot that the fans are cry­ing out for.
