  • Onto the game…

After last Saturday’s game against Mansfield was postponed, it will have been two weeks since Darren Sarll’s side last took to the field.

That was a 2-0 defeat at Notts County as the Magpies scored twice late to seal the points.

Despite the play-offs now seeming unlikely, the Stevenage players still have plenty to prove as they aim to reach internal targets and deliver a strong end to the season.

Results at the Lamex have been good all season though with just 3 defeats coming on home turf. Last time out in SG2 a 4-1 win against Yeovil was the latest in a number of convincing wins at home. 

Crewe Alexandra also had a game postponed last weekend and are eager to pick up a few more wins in order to seal their Sky Bet League Two status for another season. Currently 6 points above the relegation zone, the Railwaymen still have work to do to secure their fate.

A 4-1 win at Lincoln a fortnight ago was arguably the Alex’s best result of the season and a strong warning about their capabilities on the road.

  • Team news…

Alex Revell remains has two more games to serve on his four game suspension after his red card against Forest Green Rovers last month.

There are a number of doubts ahead of Saturday's game as a number of senior players have been missing from training this week.

Henry and Bowditch are viewed as ‘doubtful’ to feature whilst Godden and King has a 50/50 chance to make the team.

There is good news though as Kennedy should be good to go after recovering from his injury which forced him off at Notts County.

  • View from both camps...

Darren Sarll…

“We have got a decent record at our place and we know that when we open up, we have opened up big at home.

“There is an expectation from the coaching staff and hopefuly from the supporters. I hope that we can open up again another and get another convincing victory.

“It is just an important game, it is just a massive game and we need to be fresh. We need to have fresh minds, fresh legs and we need to play at a speed and a tempo."

Crewe boss, David Artell…

“Stevenage have a good manager in Darren and they have good players. They play football and he has turned it around again after they had some indifferent form, so full credit to him.

“They have good young players. We know the quality the likes of Wilmott, McKee and Godden have. They also some older professionals who help the younger ones, players like Joe Martin, Revell and Whelpdale.

“They have a really nice blend of youth and experience and it is always a tough place to go. They are a good side and it should make for a good game.”
