Onto the game…

Stevenage are in need of a bounce-back win after defeat to Forest Green Rovers last Saturday came as a huge disappointment following the excitement of the comeback against Accrington just a few days prior.

A win to see out the month would go a long way in helping rescue October's points total which has so far seen Boro pick up only three points.

Yeovil are trying to pull away from the bottom pack of teams in Sky Bet League as they currently sit in the lower third of the table with 16 points from 15 games.

Huish Park has been a welcoming home for the Glovers though – 3 wins, 3 draws and just 1 defeat on their own ground is in contrast to their poor record away.

  • Team news…

There are a few illnesses inside the camp as Luke Wilkinson and Kevin Toner are both battling to make it into the squad.

Sarll also confirmed knocks for Godden, Ferry and McKee during the week which may or may not factor into the manager’s selection choice for Saturday.

  • View from both camps...

Stevenage boss, Darren Sarll…

"I really want the players to enjoy it. You don’t realise how they have been hurt these last couple of Saturdays.

"They will enjoy it if they play our way and play it at our speed and our tempo. We will get a good result there if we can manage that.

"I really believe this - I think we are a terrific side and when we get it very right, we are a real handful.

"We have prepared this week in order to be that handful this Saturday."

Yeovil boss, Darren Way…

“They will play in a completely different way, with two forwards in a 4-4-2 up front.

“They will look to get in behind with their pace and power. 

“They can be direct at times and try and switch the play quick on us but we’ve got to make sure we keep improving every day in training and stick together.”

  • Previous meetings...

This fixture has seen more draws than a furniture store as almost half of our meetings have ended up with a share of the spoils.

Across 28 games, there have been 13 draws, 9 Yeovil wins and just six victories for the Boro.

Each of our last three meetings have also ended tied with our last victory against the Glovers coming all the way back in 2012 – a 3-1 win at Huish Park.

Stevenage will be looking to make it a first win over Yeovil for seven games.
