Onto the game…

After defeat in his opening game at home to Colchester, Dino Maamria’s troops held out for a goalless draw in Grimsby on Good Friday.

It was a good response from the previous performance and sets up Monday’s game perfectly with Barnet posting a hugely important win against Crewe.

That victory gives the Bees life in their battle to climb out of the relegation zone but a Stevenage win on Monday could be a costly blow for Martin Allen’s side.

A Boro win would also put to bed any lingering relegation worries that may still be out there.

Team news…

After coming off at half-time with a back issue on Friday, skipper Ronnie Henry is a doubt for Monday’s game.

Also doubtful is Bowditch (knee), McKee (calf) and Franks (knee) whilst top scorer, Matty Godden could play a part for the first time since February 13th.

View from the camp...

Stevenage boss, Dino Maamria:

“Martin Allen is an experienced manager and he knows what to do at Barnet. They got a good win, similar to Grimsby, they needed the three points.

“All those games are going to be difficult but it is about what we do.

“It would be brilliant for us to get my first three points at home and I have got a lot of history against Barnet, scored a lot of goals against them and had one or two incidents against them as well.

“It is a derby game, there is always passion and we always enjoyed beating them. It meant a lot to me as a player and I hope it means a lot to the players we have now.

“I will make sure they do realise that, it is a big game for us and the table never mattered in those games. It was always a fierce game and we have got to be ready for that.”
