Steve Cotterill: Wanted more goals

Wade Elliott deservedly gave the visitors the lead before half-time, turning the ball in at the back post from Brendan Moloney's cross.

Sam Baldock added a second with his 24th league goal of the season before substitute Stephen Pearson scored with his first touch after 75 minutes.

Luke Freeman netted a free-kick for Stevenage late on to the annoyance of Cotterill.

"I'm not sure their goal was a free-kick to be honest," he said. "I'm not convinced of that, and we wanted the clean sheet which is a little bit disappointing.

"Going in 1-0 up at half-time was an absolute travesty really. I counted at least eight good chances.

"I thought that our concentration was going to be important going into the second half because we had so much of the ball.

"The danger is sometimes when it becomes like that, and you have so much of the ball, that you can lose concentration and get done with one ball.

"I said to Sam Baldock that I felt we needed a goal from him, not that he wouldn't want one himself, but I wasn't going to take him off until he did score.

"And there was a nice little moment for Stephen Pearson as well, he scored a great goal."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
