  • Onto the game…

After getting off to a brilliant start in the league, Boro have picked up just one point from the past three games and will be eager to get back onto the winning trail this Saturday.

Despite the set-back there was a confident and focused feel to the group during the week, safe in the knowledge that three points against Morecambe will go some way to making up for the recent dip in form.

Still well placed in the table and just four points away from third place, the overall start to the season remains a positive one.

Morecambe sit three points back of Boro and are right in the thick of it themselves after a good couple of results heading into Saturday's game.

An opening day win against Cheltenham got the Shrimps off to a great start this season, but it took until their most recent game - at home to Newport - to get back into the win column.

That result followed on from a midweek draw at Yeovil, meaning four points from the last two games has them in their best form of the season.

Club stalwart, Kevin Ellison is still doing what he does best – four goals already this season making him their top goalscorer.

  • Team news…

The big news coming out of Bragbury End this week is Kyle Wootton’s return to fitness following his Deadline Day move last month. Wootton has been training with the squad over the past few days and is considered fit and available for selection.

Meanwhile, Jack King is unlikely to return to action after Glenn Roeder yesterday stressed the importance of not rushing him back from injury.

  • View from both camps...

Stevenage Managerial Advisor, Glenn Roeder…

“They have four points from their last two games after not starting the season so well. I have watched them a lot this week myself and it is still the same Jim Bentley team that plays it out from the back, wants to pass the ball and play attractive football.

“We have made our plans, worked hard on those plans and hopefully we can counteract them and get us the win that we need. We will certainly be pressing hard anyway.

“We expect 3 points whoever we are playing, whether it is the team top of the table or team in the bottom 5 or 6. We expect 3 points - that is how high our standards have been set.”

Morecambe boss, Jim Bentley…

“The lads have trained well, there is a good spirit and coming off the back of two good results we are hoping to have a successful week starting with Stevenage away.

“The squad is looking good and there is healthy competition in all areas of the pitch.

“It is good to have Vadaine back available for us and he offers something different going forward.”

REPORT: New boy Kyle Wootton nets the winner for Boro

23 September 2017

Sponsored by

Wonderful Wootton grabs the three points...

Deadline day signing Kyle Wootton made an immediate impact for Boro, scoring the winner just seconds after coming off the bench.

Matty Godden gave Boro the lead before Steven Old levelled things up for Morecambe before half time. Wootton replaced Newton just after the hour mark, and almost immediately scored the winner with a left-footed finish into the bottom corner.

Terence Vancooten made his first league start for Boro since joining in the summer. With Luke Wilkinson serving the last game of his suspension, and Jack King still side-lined, the ex-Reading defender was ready to fit into the back four.

The first real chance of the game came within five minutes for Stevenage. Ben Kennedy’s pressure on the Morecambe back four paid off, after hustling the ball from a defender and playing the ball through to Matt Godden. The forward couldn’t direct his effort on target, dragging the ball wide of the far post. A positive start as Boro looked to get the all important first goal.

In the opening few minutes, both sides enjoyed good spells of possession. Morecambe were looking to get the ball to the head of Kevin Ellison, while Stevenage were keeping it on the deck. Godden and Newton were continuously making runs in behind the Shrimps’ back line, trying to get the chance to put us in front.

15 minutes in, it was the same combination of Kennedy and Godden threatening the Morecambe back line once more. Almost a carbon copy of the first chance, Kennedy’s through pass meeting the run of Godden, who this time fired over.

It was third time lucky for Matty Godden, as he finally took his chance to put Boro in front. After some lovely touches out wide from Kennedy and Tom Pett, Godden found himself with the ball at his feet inside the box. Last season’s top goal scorer doubled his tally for this season, with a superb outside of the boot finish into the far corner. Stevenage were 1-0 up and looked in good stead for another.

Almost instantly after the opener, Danny Newton had a chance to make it two in two minutes. Godden this time found himself as creator, crossing the ball onto the penalty spot, only for Newton to crash against the post. The ball was eventually cleared, but Boro appeared to be on their way to a second.

Seemingly from nothing, Morecambe had a free kick inside the Boro half. Shrimps’ captain Michael Rose stood over the ball, and whipped in the perfect cross for Steven Old to head in. The game was now level as Morecambe were growing into the game.

Stevenage came out for the second half looking fired up and ready to grab the win. Ronnie Henry, of all people, had a great chance on goal just ten minutes since the restart. Kennedy slid the ball through to the skipper, who dragged his shot wide.

New signing Kyle Wootton was named on the bench for the first time since arriving on deadline day, and made an instant impact when he came on for Newton, on 65 minutes. The Scunthorpe loanee took a touch inside the box, spun on the spot, and with his left foot blasted past the keeper. What an introduction for the new striker.

Into the final ten minutes, Morecambe were starting to load the box and pile on the pressure. Big forward Vadaine Oliver was now partnering Ellison up front, two target men to aim for. Ronnie Henry and co. were putting their bodies on the line to keep us in front.

Morecambe threw everything into finding a late equaliser, including bringing the goalkeeper up for numerous set pieces, but Boro stood firm and picked up the win. A massive result for Stevenage as they collect three points for the first time in three games.

Starting XI: Fryer, Vancooten, Henry, Franks, Martin, Kennedy, Gorman, Smith, Pett, Newton (Wootton 64), Godden (Samuel 83).
