place.stOn paper, Stevenage go into the toughest game of the season to face Wolves for the first time in history. Both sides enter the fixture in good form, as Boro look to make it 5 wins out of 6 whilst Wolves chase down 1
There are no fresh concerns ahead of this weekend’s game for Boro, with Darius Charles and Ben Chorley the only likely absentee’s through injury. Lucas Akins will be suspended for the final time before being eligible for next weekend’s FA Cup clash with Portsmouth.
Jamie O’Hara was re-introduced into the Wolves squad for the first time this season against Bradford, and could make his return to the team this weekend. Richard Stearman was back in training on Thursday and is likely to return from injury, whilst Matt Doughty is out with a hamstring injury. Leigh Griffiths was missing training on Thursday with a “heavy cold” so will play depending on how that develops.

The Wolverhampton Wanderers Scout Report
Pre-season favourites to win the league, Wolves are currently only 3 points and one place off top spot, after a fantastic start to the season. After 13 games the club have won 10, drawn 2 and only lost 1 game. Their one shock loss came at home to local rivals, Walsall in September and have won every game in the league since, bar a 1-1 draw at home to in-form Coventry. Wolves also have the best defensive record in the league, with only 8 goals conceded all season. Anything other than promotion will be seen as failure for the club this season, who as little as one calendar year ago were playing in the Premier League!
Bakary Sako is a one-man wrecking ball on the Wolves wing and has terrorised defences up and down League One all season. He won the Wolves Player of the Season award last year and has continued his form this year. Already a club favourite, Sako has scored 4 goals this season including a thunderous strike against Sheffield United that’s already a contender for goal of the season. Top scorer Leigh Griffiths has been a revelation this season, already with 9 goals this season. At only 23 he’s yet to reach his prime and his fine form has been rewarded with 4 caps for Scotland. The side are blessed with ex-Premier League players who haven’t been making the team, but the possible impact of Kevin Doyle or Jamie O’Hara shouldn’t be underestimated.
