Westley: U's clash is must win

Stevenage boss Graham Westley admits next weekend's clash with Colchester is a must-win game.

Saturday's 1-0 defeat by fellow strugglers Shrewsbury left Boro bottom of League One with five matches to play.

But Colchester are also in the relegation mix following four straight losses and currently lie just four points ahead of Westley's side.

"We know we now have to win next Saturday," said Westley.

"That is the consequence of defeat, but we had to beat Torquay to reach League One so we know all about must-win games.

"There are six places between us and Colchester but it will be only one point with a Stevenage win next Saturday. So the task is simplified. The job is clear."
