Team news:


Michael Tonge could be back in the squad for tomorrow’s game after going down with an illness in the week that hindered his return on Tuesday, having just recovered from a hamstring injury. Byron Harrison could also feature having signed on a month's loan earlier this week.


We have some great news in that Adam Marriott has completed a full week’s training and although tomorrow may be too soon for him, he is well on the way to recovery.


Having gone off against Hartlepool, Dean Parrett will likely miss out although he should be back in training next week along with Chris Whelpdale.


Pat Hoban picked up an ankle ligament injury against Crawley and will be out for a couple of weeks alongside Macca, Schuey, Okimo and Kennedy.

The story so far…


After a slow start to the season, The U’s have picked up their form and are now just two points away from the play-offs.  Shaun Derry has had a positive impact on the side since taking over from Richard Money and it is their away form in particular as of late that has impressed.


Cambridge have won four and drawn one of their last six away games whilst only losing four on the road all season.  They are currently on a four game unbeaten run, winning their last two games.


Head to Head: 


We have locked horns with the U’s in many entertaining and crucial encounters over the years and it’s Boro that just come out on top overall with eight wins to six.


At the Lamex, Stevenage have a formidable recent record against Cambridge with four wins in our last four games here including the below 3-2 win last season.

However, our opponents may point to the fact that in our last two visits to the Abbey we have conceded crucial injury time goals which brings us onto our next section...


Our last meeting:



Betting with Sky Bet:


Stevenage are home underdogs tomorrow - 9/5 with Sky Bet meaning a £10 bet would return you £28. Not too shabby...


We fancy someone to bag their first goal for the club tomorrow - Aaron O'Connor is 6/1 to score first, Byron Harrison is 13/2 whilst Offrande Zanzala and Ryan Hedges are both 8/1.
