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."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
