STEVENAGE TRAVEL TO TONBRIDGE ON TUESDAY

21 July 2014

Stevenage's pre-season preparations continue on Tuesday night with a trip to Tonbridge Angels.

 

The Kent-based side are managed by former Gravesend and Hayes midfielder Steve McKimm and will compete in the Ryman Premier Division in 13/14 following relegation from Skrill South last season. 

 

Kick-off at the Longmead Stadium (directions below) will be 7.45pm.

 

This will be Boro's third away friendly after games at Arlesey Town and Barnet in the past fortnight. Stevenage are back on the road again next weekend as well as they travel to Chesham United (3pm KO) on Saturday.

 

last Saturday evening after the Millwall game, manager Graham Westley said it's going to be a tough game. Boro Player Speaking to

 

He said, "My intention was to take a frontline XI down there but with knocks today I'm sure how many we'll have fit on Tuesday. Harry obviously came off with a knock which will keep him out. Added to Darius, Calvin, Ronnie and Beardo, there's one or two others nursing strains. Charlie Lee came off, Whelpdale came off. Quite who we're going to have available on Tuesday I don't know.

 

"Certainly at this stage I'm not going to push players to play and risk picking up longer-term knocks. We'll see how we are when we come in on Monday. We may well have to patch things up and put some of the younger lads in. But if it was a league game Monday and the young lads went in they'd have to go out and do the job, so nonetheless it's a test we'll have to do our best with."
