GRAHAM WESTLEY says Stevenage are relishing the prospect of facing Huddersfield Town for the first time today.
The 43-year-old has led the Hertfordshire club to successive promotions from the Blue Square Premier and League II.
And while they’ve lost four running in all competitions, they’re still 14th in the table.
“Huddersfield have had a fantastic time of it – they’re a top side in this league and have been for a vast period of time – and the 36 league games they’ve gone unbeaten is tremendous,” said Westley, who is in his second spell at the helm.
“But you have to remember not to play their record.
“You’ve got to play the players that turn up on the day. You’ve got to make sure it’s the weaknesses in opposition players you play against not the strengths or the record because that’s about the past.”
Westley added: “Our defensive record is joint eighth best in League I so we’ve got work to do there and tighten things up.
And at the other end we’re similarly placed in terms of goals scored.
“Our overall record in terms of goal average compares similarly with most of the sides in the top 10 so we’ve got to build on that and get a little bit more dangerous in front of goal and a little bit more ruthless in keeping clean sheets.”
