How to get there..

Onto the game…

Just two weeks after a goalless draw in a pre-season friendly at the Lamex, Stevenage travel to Millwall on Tuesday night in another tough Carabao Cup Round One game.

In each of the last four seasons, Boro have drawn Championship opposition at this stage of the season, making it through twice. Ben Kennedy won it for Sarll's men at this time last year and after four seasons without a cup run, victory again would be welcome.

Millwall came home empty handed from the City Ground on opening day with a tough to swallow 1-0 defeat against Nottingham Forest. The Lions created plenty of chances and boss Neil Harris was pleased with how his players performed. 

The game will be the first ever competitive meeting between the two sides.

Team news...

Stevenage should have an almost full strength squad available with the likes of Kennedy and Godden back to fitness. Competition has increased further with new signing, Jonathan Smith available for selection.

View from the camp...

Tuesday's game should be a competitive fixture with both managers stressing the importance played on the game.

"It is very similair to going to Ipswich last year. We always seem to pick out difficult away trips against good sides in this competition and I have every respect for the work Neil Harris has done.

"We will wait and see what sort of side they play but we will be as strong as possible."

"Stevenage will come here looking to cause an upset and defeat a Championship club, so we will have to be every bit as good as we were last weekend if we are to secure our place in the Second Round.

"The Carabao Cup is a competition that I'll be taking very seriously, as I always have done in my time in charge of this club."

A first for Moro...

Between 2006 and 2009, Steve Morison scored 89 goals in just over 150 games for Stevenage, making him the clubs second highest ever goalscorer. A move to Millwall beckoned for a then club record fee, where the striker continued to score goals at a prolific rate.

Spells at Norwich and Leeds followed before returning to The Den in 2015, highlighted by his winning goal in last seasons Sky Bet League One Play-Off final. 

Tuesday's match will be the first time Morison comes up against Stevenage since leaving in 2009.

REPORT: Stevenage out of Carabao Cup after 2-0 Millwall defeat

8 August 2017

Sponsored by

Stevenage were knocked out of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night as two Tom Elliot headers secured victory for Millwall at The Den.

Despite a positive performance for much of the contest, two moments in the second half won the tie for the home side.

There were just two changes from the side that drew 3-3 against Newport in the season opener - Matty Godden and Chris Whelpdale into the XI with Newton and Beautyman dropping out.

In a sparsely packed Den, the game got off to a slow start and understandably so with the lack of atmosphere on display. Despite that, Darren Sarll would have been happy with what he saw from his players as Boro appeared more than a match for their Championship opposition.

Stevenage were comfortable with the ball and enjoyed plenty of possession with Pett, McKee and Gorman running the midfield. Franks and Samuel both saw shots on goal blocked within the first half hour whilst at the other end, Joe Fryer denied Cooper’s header with a brilliant save from close range.

The clearest chance of the half came on 30 minutes though and it was Chris Whelpdale on the end of a brilliant Boro move. After Tom Pett released Alex Samuel behind the defence, the Welshman pulled it back for Whelpdale who could only hit it straight at King in goal. Matty Godden followed up the shot as the ball came loose but King was there again.

Millwall’s attacking threat was limited during the first half but Fraser Franks was needed right on the whistle as he got his body in the way of a loose ball to win a crucial foul inside the six yard box.

A pre-planned substation saw Danny Newton replace Matty Godden at the break and the striker almost made an immediate impact. After winning the ball up the pitch, he laid it for McKee who could only fire over.

The home side improved during the second half and took the lead not long after. Tom Elliot using his impressive frame to jostle for position inside the six yard box before heading the ball home at the far post.

Jonathan Smith replaced Chris Whelpdale after an hour for his Stevenage debut, but there was little the new signing could do as Millwall soon made it 2-0. Elliot found at the far-post again – this time from the opposite side - heading the ball beyond Fryer in goal.

Turgott replaced Pett with just over 15 minutes to go and Boro rallied once more as we approached the final whistle. Although Newton couldn’t hit the target from 12 yards out, his quick feet to work some space inside a crowded box got the Stevenage fans off their feet to show their approval.

With a 2-0 lead in hand, Millwall appeared content with their night's work. Although a late Worrall strike and Onyedinma effort both came close, you felt the Lions knew it was job done.

Although Boro kept on probing and never gave up, a resolute Millwall defence saw the job out and went home with the win.
