Onto the game…

A convincing win at home to Barnet on Monday was the perfect way to cap off a good Easter weekend as Dino Maamria picked up his first four points of his tenure.

On Saturday he returns to Newport County to try and lead the Super Boro to a second successive win, at the club he worked at for much of last season.

Tomorrow’s opposition still have the slimmest of chances to reach the play-offs but will need a win in-order to keep that dream alive.

After the greatest of escapes last season, many will say County are playing with house money though after a brilliant season overall.

Stevenage boss, Dino Maamria:

“It is good to see them do well this season, they have bounced back.

“I still think they have got a chance of the play-offs, so I am sure Saturday will be their last chance.

“They will be up for it, it is a tough place Newport, always has been, the fans get behind them and hopefully we can keep them quiet."

Newport boss, Mike Flynn:

“It will be good to see Dino. He worked tirelessly for this football club and he was very good. We got on very well.

“Some of the players might be interested to see him and score a few points over him but for me, he’ll be welcomed with open arms.

“When I see somebody put in the amount of work that he did for Newport County AFC, a club I love, that’s good enough for me.”
