Onto the game…

Two straight wins have lifted the mood on Broadhall Way after a difficult run of form over the past few months.

Since Dino Maamria’s appointment as First Team Manager, results and performances have improved at every stage.

Defeat to Colchester, a point at Grimsby and then wins at home to Barnet and away at Newport have shown a steady progression under the new boss.

Stevenage are the only team in the division who can still mathematically win promotion and be relegated, although both outcomes at this stage would be highly unlikely.

Mansfield have struggled under new boss, David Flitcroft having lost four games in a row and with no win in eight.

Despite that, the Stags are just two points off the play-off places and will have plenty of motivation going into tomorrow’s game.

Team news…

The Stevenage squad is looking in good shape with very few injury issues to report on.

Mark McKee and Dean Bowditch could both feature again after missing the last few games due to knee injuries.

Officials...

  • Referee: Sebastian Stockbridge
  • Assistant Referee 1: Carl Fitch-Jackson
  • Assistant Referee 2: Paul Yates
  • Fourth Official: Kevin Howick

View from the camp...

Stevenage boss, Dino Maamria:

“Although they have lost four on the bounce, I have watched their last couple of games against Luton and Crewe and they were very unlucky to not take something out of the games.

“They still have a very good chance to make it into the play-offs, so I am sure it will be a very tough game tomorrow.

“We take each game at a time and hopefully we will win tomorrow and that will give us a real positive mentality to attack the game against Cambridge in the local derby on Saturday.”
