Boro slipped to a fourth straight defeat when they were beaten by the Sky Blues on Saturday and now lie second from bottom in League One.

But Westley said: "The difference between the sides was not huge.

"It was much more like a Stevenage performance, the back four was solid and there was an organisation to our attacking play.

"I'm encouraged by the condition of the players' mind-sets, I'm encouraged by where they are at in terms of their desire and determination, I'm encouraged by their will to learn and change.

"I can see a real will to learn. When as a manager you know that people finally want to take your voice on board, that gives you real optimism."

don't see Neymar or Suarez wanting to play second fiddle to Messi or playing to support Messi in his quest to get the World Player of the Year award back.
