  • Onto the game...

With three points in the bag following the weekend's trip to Carlisle, Maamria's men made sure it was a sweet September with 3 wins, 1 draw and just 1 defeat coming from the month.

The timing couldn't have been better. That record has moved Stevenage up to fourth in the league ahead of crunch games against Exeter (3rd), Colchester (5th) and Newport (2nd) coming up.

So far the key has been a rock-solid foundation, with 5 clean sheets from the first 10 games including four 1-0 wins. Ben Nugent and Scott Cuthbert have formed a fearsome partnership with Steve Seddon and Luther James-Wildin on the flanks.

It's a record that wil surely be tested on Tuesday night against an Exeter side that have picked up 10 points out of 15 from home and are the second highest goalscorers at home in the league, with 12 goals scored from 5 games.

After losing out in the League Two Play-Off Final in each of the past two season's, the Grecians were widely tipped to go one step further at the start of the campaign and their start has surely added credance to that belief.

Stevenage and Exeter have a long history of facing each other than stretches back to the early 2000's when the two sides were battling it out in the Conference.

One of the more memorable meetings in recent years came three years ago when after going behind by two early goals, Stevenage rallied to stage a memorable comeback in-front of the Sky Sports cameras.

It has been a while since Boro last won at St James Park though, you need to go all the way back to a Tuesday night in 2006 when goals from Darren Stamp and Jon Nurse helped Graham Westley's side to a 2-0 win.
