  • Onto the game...

Stevenage are looking to make it five games unbeaten to start the season at Huish Park on Saturday after two wins and two draws up to this point.

Tuesday’s goalless draw at Forest Green was a demanding game in which Stevenage had to battle hard to preserve the clean-sheet and with nearly 600 miles to travel this week, it is without question one of the most challenging weeks of the season.

The team has pretty much a clean bill of health though, only Danny Newton currently a doubt as he recovers from a rib injury sustained at Crawley.

Yeovil have had a solid start to the season with 1 win, 2 draws and only 1 defeat.

The Glovers have arguably had the stand-out result of the season though, a 4-0 away win at promotion favourites Notts County last Friday which made the division stand up and take notice.

  • View from the camp...

Stevenage boss, Dino Maamria:

“We are working on that to be even better, I thought we conceded one or two too many chances on Tuesday, although we dealt with them well, but we do not want to give them any chances hopefully.

"We want to be on the front foot, we want to be attacking teams and hopefully we do not concede any chances. In terms of being in possession I think we created one or two chances on Tuesday night, but we want to create more. The more opportunities we make, the better chance we have of scoring goals.”

  • Previous meetings…

Games against the Glovers are often unpredictable affairs, best demonstrated by our two meetings last season - a 4-1 home win for Stevenage and a 3-0 home win for Yeovil.

Overall it is Yeovil who have the stronger head-to-head record, winning 10 games to 7 with a whopping 13 draws.

Huish Park hasn’t been much of a happy hunting ground for the past 6 years. Boro’s last win in Somerset came in 2012, a 3-1 win thanks to goals from Filipe Morais, James Dunne and Lucas Akins.
