  • Onto the game…

Stevenage will be hoping to post a first win in five after a frustrating week that saw a point rescued against Luton Town before defeat at Forest Green on Tuesday night.

Marooned in midtable, Darren Sarll’s side will see tomorrow’s game as a must-win to try and build some momentum going into the final stretch of the season.

Yeovil meanwhile have steered clear from the relegation places with a run of 3 wins from 4 league games.

The Glovers are now just one point behind Boro with a game in hand but their away form is one of the worst in the division, with just 10 points picked up from their 15 games on the road.

  • Team news…

Stevenage have a number of injury concerns going into tomorrow’s game with Joe Martin, Alex Samuel, Chris Whelpdale, Dale Gorman, Jonathan Smith and Jack King all unavailable in recent weeks whilst Terence Vancooten also limped off on Tuesday night.

There is further bad news in that Alex Revell’s red card has been upheld and as such, his ban will remain at four games, after picking up a straight red earlier in the season for Northampton.

  • View from the camp...

Glenn Roeder...

“I have got to say our group of players and this includes the new ones, there is a lot of bounce-back-ability there, they do bounce back.

“We have had some poor results in the past and then come back home and produce the performance and that is what we are looking for on Saturday, for us to produce a winning performance.

“Everyone likes playing at home, it is too obvious to say there is an advantage.

“If you go through every team’s results in any one season, they mostly pick up more points at home than away.

“So they will all be looking forward to getting back home, I certainly like playing at home personally.”

  • Previous meetings...

Almost half of all meetings between Stevenage and Yeovil have ended in a draw with the overall record currently at 6 wins, 13 draws and 10 defeats.

It has been 8 games since Stevenage last beat Yeovil, a 3-0 away win back in November of 2012. That win was the second in a row at Huish Park as Stevenage routed the Glovers to a 6-1 victory just 7 months prior.

Unbelievably, our last win at home against Yeovil came all the way back in 1998, a 2-1 triumph that saw Jason Solomon and Gary Crawshaw on the scoresheet.

REPORT: Stevenage 4 - 1 Yeovil

17 February 2018

Three points on the board...

It was important that Stevenage got back to winning ways at the Lamex and that is exactly what they did and in some style, as they overturned the visiting Glovers by four goals to one.

Fantastic long range first half goals from midfielders Luke Amos and Jonathan Smith put the boys two up going into the break after one of the best 45 minutes of the season.

Second half goals from Danny Newton and Ben Kennedy doubled the lead, but the clean sheet couldn't be preserved, as the visitors clawed one back late through Ryan Seager.

Skipper Ronnie Henry and forward Matty Godden both failed late fitness tests going into the game but Joe Martin, Jonathan Smith and Jack King all came back into the side.

Both teams started the game slow with the ball spending the majority of its time in the air, but it didn’t take too long for the Boro to wake up and get playing.

From the 10 minute mark onwards, it was clear the boys had much more swagger and intent in their play, which had been missing in recent weeks.

Boro were first to record an effort on goal in the 12th minute, as McKee looped the ball into the box with Danny Newton prodding wide.

Just moments later there was a penalty shout as Jack King appeared to get barged down in the box, but referee Nicholas Kinseley waved off all appeals.

Stevenage were rewarded for a spell of great build up play between the midfield as Luke Amos capped it all off with a fantastic curling effort from outside the box, which left Maddison helpless to put the Boro 1-0 up in the 14th minute.

The boys were at it again and looked full of confidence in the 22nd minute after some great link-up play between Danny Newton and John Goddard. The chance came to Kennedy who came ever so close to doubling the lead with a one-on-one chance that was well saved.

Darren Sarll’s men showed no early signs of turning down the intensity and were looking to increase their lead once again in the 25th minute, as Mark McKee and Danny Newton worked their way through the Yeovil defence, but McKee's powerful hit was saved well by Maddison.  

Stevenage continued to dominate the half and finally doubled their lead on the stroke of half-time, as Jonathan Smith smashed in from 25 yards to make it 2-0.

The boys came out of the second half flying and were 3-0 up within a minute. Ben Kennedy charging down the right before playing in his counter-part Danny Newton, who could barely miss from a few yards out.

Yeovil’s first and best chance of the game in the 56th minute with the ball falling to Sam Surridge at the back post, but he couldn’t put it past Tom King who made himself big to make sure he got in the way of the forward.

After a hard working performance for the whole game, Ben Kennedy was finally rewarded for his efforts in the 57th minute as he finally got himself on the score sheet. 

Ben Wilmot feeding the Northern Irishman after winning the ball in the corner flag, and using his electric feet, Ben broke free from the Yeovil defenders to slot in at the far post.

Tom King did not have much to do, but the keeper was on guard in the 64th minute to tip over Lewis Wings’ long-range effort, which was on course to go into the roof of the net.

It was a home debut Kevin Lokko after coming on in 74th minute for Joe Martin but just a few minutes after coming on, a defensive error allowed Ryan Seager to make it 4-1.

Just moments later, the visitors could have got another one back as the ball fell to Sam Surridge at the back-post but the striker could not keep his headed effort down in front of goal.

Stevenage’s second sub came in the 80th minute, with Dean Bowditch also making his home debut and goal scorer made way for the inside forward. 

Danny Newton could have put the finishes touches on a great overall team performance as he broke free in the closing minutes, his shot blocked after failing to pick out one of many waiting Stevenage shirts.

Joe White came on for his debut with just a few minutes to go, replacing Danny Newton who came off to a resounding applause from the Boro faithful.

A welcome three points after a tough stretch of games, next up for Darren Sarll's men is a trip to Notts County's Meadow Lane.
