Westley - Boro are on the up

Last Updated: Wed, 02 Apr 2014 13:56

Graham Westley feels his side do not resemble one struggling at the bottom after they lifted themselves off the foot of League One.

The visitors and league leaders came into Tuesday's match as big favourites, but came up against a fired-up home side who created just as many chances as their more illustrious opponents.

Both goalkeepers came away with credit from a match that leaves Stevenage one point off safety and Wolves still on course for promotion back to the Championship.

Westley said: "You want to win your home games and not spill too many points but Wolves are a top side.

"They're champions-elect, they're in good form, they've not been conceding too many goals while scoring plenty.

"It was always going to be a game that people probably think was there for them to win rather than us but I thought the lads showed what I've been saying.

"That is that in 2014 since we brought one or two in, we haven't been a bottom side.

"We're bottom because of the start we had to the season and we've been a mid-table side in our results recently as we're unbeaten in eight of our last 10.

"The side's growing, developing and improving all the time and I thought that was a strong performance.

"I thought it was an entertaining game and it was one that either side could have won, although we had the better chances."
