  • Onto the game...

Two games, four points. It has been a good start for the Super Boro this season, which could look even better by the end of Saturday. With a home draw to newly promoted Tranmere, and a huge away win at Crawley, the new campaign looks promising for Dino Maamria and his new look squad.

Two early goals from Ball and Byrom on the opening day gave us the lead, but the advantage was squandered and the points were shared. A tough away day at Crawley followed, with Alex Reid putting us in front before the Red Devils clawed one back. Alex Revell came to the rescue at two late  goals from the forward ensured Boro got all three points.

Morecambe have not had the best of starts to 2018/2019. A 6-0 away defeat to Crewe on the opening day, followed by a 2-0 home defeat to Exeter means Morecambe sit bottom of the table with zero goals scored. It’s been 125 days since The Shrimps last scored a league goal, but this could all change on Saturday…

  • Team news...

The only injury concern for Dino Maamria on Saturday is Danny Newton, who sustained a suspected broken rib against Crawley last Saturday. Ben Kennedy is back in the squad after missing out on the last two games, after his partner gave birth last Friday. Luke Wilkinson has also returned from suspension, and is in contention to make his first appearance of the season. 

  • View from the camp...

Stevenage boss, Dino Maamria:

"In League Two, every game is winnable, but if you are not on it you can lose any game. It doesn’t matter if they have got off to a bad start.

"On Saturday afternoon we have got to play as well as we can, and that is what we have got to do every game. Yes, Morecambe had a poor start, but that does not mean they will be poor on Saturday, I am sure they will be determined to put that right."

  • Previous meetings...

Stevenage have an impressive record when it comes to facing Morecambe, picking up five wins from ten in the league, and losing just the one.

Last time out a late Fraser Franks wonder goal meant a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw at the Globe Arena.
