Graham Westley says he has been impressed with the attitude of the players since he came back to Stevenage.
Westley made a surprise return to Broadhall Way last week, just over a year after he left for Preston, following the sacking of Gary Smith.
The playing personnel may have changed significantly since his previous stint in charge, but Westley likes what he has seen so far following a win and a draw in his first two games back at the helm.
"I've been really pleased with their response and their reaction, and particularly pleased with the attitude that they are showing," he said.
"They are really applying themselves and there are some very good players at the club."
