Opposing Manager's Views
Stevenage boss Darren Sarll thought it was a good point as his team came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw against Coventry City at the Lamex Stadium.
Sarll told Cometlive: “Listen, I’m a big believer in when you’re a manager you stockpile points.
“Add the point or points and move on and you add all the points up at the end of the year and you’ll be fine.
“One of the big things this year, was to get to the point when it was ‘win or lose’ and we turn losses into draws.
“So it was a point gained tonight from a losing position against a massive football club in this league – and in the league above and in the Championship so I thought it was a good point.
“It was good to see we got something for our efforts, which in our current form – which we’re not hiding from – could have passed us by.
“So yes it was important to get a point tonight.”
