Ryan Sweeney's finish earned Mansfield Town the three points today.

And Revell believes the result was more about his side's shortcomings than Stags superiority.

"Yet again it was another game where our keeper hasn't had a save to make," he told the Stevenage YouTube channel.

"They had one chance from a set piece, scored it and after that, second half we dominated.

"Jamie (Cumming) didn't have a save to make and missed chances cost you games - and goals against you that are poor cost you games.

"We've got to learn quickly."

Revell was particularly frustrated by the first half showing.

He added: "It was a really slow start, we gave the ball away from the kick off, they break.

"It summed it up really. We had chances to slip people through and didn’t take it, whereas in recent weeks they've been going through.

"It was nowhere near good enough."
