Onto the game…

After a first defeat of the Sky Bet League Two season on Saturday, Stevenage are hoping to get back to winning ways in the first Tuesday night league game of the campaign against Crawley.

Matty Godden's first goal of the season ensured that Boro continued their streak of scoring in each league game so far, coming from seven different goalscorers.

11 points from 6 games is a welcome return from the opening fixtures, with only three teams sitting on more points at this early stage.

It has been a challening start to life in League Two for Harry Kewell as Crawley Town manager, losing four of their opening six league games. Importantly though two crucial wins have also been posted, keeping the points tally ticking.

So far their stand out result of the season has been the 3-0 victory at Swindon - a performance which saw Crawley record 8/18 shots on target and well deserving of the victory.

Team news…

Jack King could return to the squad on Tuesday after being held back from action on Saturday. King had been back out on the training pitch last week so is nearing a comeback.

Left-back, Joe Martin was forced off on Saturday and both Luke Wlkinson and Dale Gorman will be unavailable due to active suspensions.

View from the camp...

  • Stevenage boss, Darren Sarll…

"It is a quick chance to post three points and help make up for the opportunity missed on Saturday.

"Crawley will be a tough opponent and will have no fear coming to our place. Their 3-0 win at Swindon a couple of weeks ago shows what they are capable of away from home.

"It is up to us to dictate the terms though – we must be at them right from the off and ready to put on a show under the lights."

Previous meetings...

Crawley are one of Stevenage's most familiar foes. Other than in 2011, the two sides have faced each other every year since 2004 across five different competitions/leagues.

Boro have won the last two meetings between the sides by the score of 2-1, making the overall tally P23, W12, D3, L8.

Honours even as Boro are held by Crawley

12 September 2017

Tough conditions as points are shared..

Stevenage were held by a resilient Crawley to a 1-1 draw, as Boro were frustrated by the visitors. A wonderful Danny Newton wasn't enough as the teams took a share of the points.

Darren Sarll made just two changes from the team that lost to Lincoln on Saturday. Ben Kennedy made his first start for Stevenage since returning from injury, plus there was a first league start for Aston Villa loanee Kevin Toner. The young Irishman coming into the back four to replace the suspended Luke Wilkinson.

After a bright start from Boro and especially Ben Kennedy down the right-hand side, the first shot on target came from Jonathan Smith. The ball fell to the midfielder 30 yards out, and after a quick glance to see the goalkeeper off his line, fancied his chances on the half volley, only to see the Crawley ‘keeper parry and collect.

Kennedy then came close to finding the net himself. Boro had been on top for 20 minutes and looked comfortable in possession. The winger cut back inside on his favoured left-food, before dragging his fizzed shot just wide of the near post.

On the half hour, Crawley had grown into the tie and were continuing to load crosses into the box. Ibrahim Meite latched onto a long through ball from the back, before firing at goal. The striker hit what looked to be a great individual goal, but Joe Fryer was there to pull off an incredible save to deny the visitors the lead.

As the fourth official signalled for six minutes of added time due to the number of injury breaks in the first half, Stevenage went 1-0 up. Danny Newton picked the ball up from deep, and decided to go it alone. The striker slalomed past four defenders, before striking low and accurately past the goalkeeper into the bottom right. Newton then proceeded to his customary East Terrace celebration, sending the Boro faithful into raptures. 

The rain continued to pour down at The Lamex, and the second half kicked off as Stevenage looked to seal the win. However, Ibrahim Meite managed to steal the ball high up the pitch, before blasting his left-footed effort past Fryer and into the corner. The game was now all to play for as the conditions worsened.

Both sides battled it out in the middle of the park in almost unplayable conditions. Crawley were working hard and not letting Boro have time on the ball. Chances were few and far between as the game looked to fade away.

The match ended 1-1 as Boro came away quite underwhelmed, with what should have been three points. Stevenage take on Swindon on Saturday as we look to get back to winning ways.

Stevenage XI: Fryer, Henry, Franks (Vancooten 51), Toner, Martin, Beautyman (Samuel 61), Smith, Pett, Kennedy, Godden, Newton (Whelpdale 72).
