  • Onto the game...

Boro gave its supporters a Boxing Day boost with three points at Colchester, the first road victory for the club in over two months.

Despite that wait inbetween wins on the road, Stevenage have a more-than-respectable away record of four wins, three draws and five defeats, the 10th best in the division.

That victory over Colchester was a vital one, keeping Maamria's men in-touch with the play-off pack as Sky Bet League Two enters the second half of the season.

Crewe picked up a stand-out victory themselves on Boxing Day, a home win against top-of-the-table Lincoln City to lift supporters who haven't had the best of seasons so far.

Still someway out of contention, Crewe's away record is what has really let them down this season as the Railwaymen have only picked up 5 points from 12 games on the road.

With a record like that it puts pressure on their home form, which they have duly delivered on. 7 wins out of 12 gives them the seventh best home record in the league, meaning a tough test likely awaits on Saturday. 

  • One to Watch...

Stevenage's tormentor in chief over recent years, Jordan Bowery, scored the winning goal in two of Boro's last three games against the Railwaymen.

Earlier this season it was Bowery's clever finish that secured all three points at the Lamex Stadium and last time at Gresty Road it was Bowery that struck in added time to inflict defeat in the cruelest of fashions.

  • Head to Head...

Stevenage have a positive record against Crewe Alexandra down the years but it has been steadily chipped away at after recent meetings. Two defeats and a draw from the last three games between the two sides has evened things up a little bit in the Head to Head standings.
