Steve Schumacher is currently enjoying his best spell as a Stevenage player after an ACL injury majorly disrupted his first 18 months at the club.

After being out for the majority of last season, Schumacher had to remain patient at the beginning of this campaign as it took until November before he started a league game.

Since then though Schumacher has been a mainstay in the team and he spoke to us about his form and role in the team.

“I am relatively happy with how I am playing. The manager asked me to score and make goals when I came in and I have managed to do that by chipping in with a few goals and assist here and there.

“Since Accrington I have played pretty much every game and although there have probably been one or two performances where tiredness caught up with me, it is to be expected when you have been out for so long.

“In general I have been happy with my form and I am looking forward to the run in now.”

Over the past few months Schumacher has been playing alongside Charlie Lee and Tom Pett which has proved to be a winning combination.

“It is good at the moment. The three of us that have been in there regularly are really enjoying it. We have got a nice understanding of what each of us do. I know Chaz is behind me mopping up so I can press high up the pitch and get close to people, as the manager wants us to do.

“I know that I am not leaving a massive hole behind me as Chaz is always there.

“Playing alongside Petty, I feel that if I get the ball to his feet then we have got a chance. He can take us from defence to attack within a matter of moments and it’s my job to get him the ball as soon as I can. It is a lot of fun and long may it continue.”

Looking ahead to Saturday’s game, Schumacher says that having missed out our last two games against Luton he is eager to play this weekend.

“It is one I am massively looking forward to and I am desperate to play.

“I missed our last two games against them so I am really hoping I get the chance to start as it is one of those fixtures you look out for, even more so now.”
