Graham Westley has urged patience as Stevenage look for their first points of the League One campaign.

PA Sport Report

The Boro boss has seen his team lose all three of their matches. The latest loss came at the hands of top-of-the-table Leyton Orient as Kevin Lisbie's goal gave the Londoners a 1-0 win at the Lamex Stadium.

Westley felt his side were worthy of a draw against the O's.

He said: "I think you always have got to be honest about where you are at. It was quite hard going for us, but I think we showed a lot more than we did last week.

"It was a pleasing performance compared to last week - it wouldn't have been unjust if we got a draw.

"There are a lot of unanswered questions but we have a good group of lads here. I know the players we have and they are a good bunch - I think we will be okay.

"We have to get used to each other and gel. I like the phrase "Rome wasn't built in a day."
