Adams commented: “We can feel good about ourselves after the disappointment of Bristol City on Tuesday night.
“I thought we defended a lot better than I’ve seen for a while. We knew coming to Stevenage that we’d have to stand up and be counted.
“I think we had enough chances and got into enough areas to have caused them a few more problems. I’m pleased with the commitment of the side, we stood up to the physical bombardment that we got.
“We took the lead deservedly with a great goal. It was a great ball in from Birchy and well finished by Pope.
“After that I felt we were on top of them, causing some problems. But I was disappointed that we’ve conceded another goal from a set-piece.”
Adams did make a pointed reference to the refereeing decision that allowed Stevenage’s Bira Dembele to stay on the pitch after an elbow on Tom Pope commenting: “I thought the referee had a major decision to make and I think he took the easy option,” said Adams. “They took him off at half-time which tells you that it probably should have been a sending off.”
