  • Onto the game...

Stevenage will be looking to continue their good run of form after picking up four wins from the last six games, the second best form in the league leaving the team in fifth place going into Saturday's game.

It's another long-haul away trip for Maamria's squad after trips to Carlisle and Exeter on our last two road outings. Despite the distances travelled, it has been a solid start for Stevenage away from home with two wins, two draws and two defeats recorded.

Both sides have had similar starts to the season, with only three points separating the two. Newport find themselves in the automatic promotion places in third, and come into Saturday’s fixture on a four-game unbeaten spell.

The Exiles have have an impressive home record of four wins, one draw and one defeat, mirroring Boro's own record at the Lamex Stadium.

Micky Flynn, who has had three different playing spells at Newport, has been in charge since of the Welsh side since May of last year, taking over from ex-Boro gaffer Graham Westley.

  • Team News...

Paul Farman remains sidelined due to a hand injury, whilst Alex Revell and Kurtis Guthrie are doubts after picking up knocks last time out. Luther James-Wildin is available for selection again after serving his suspension.

After facing each other for the first time in our history in 2014, Stevenage and Newport County have met eight times, twice a year for four seasons.

Boro boast an impressive record vs the South Wales outfit, with picking up the majority of points with five wins.

Stevenage will be hoping of a repeat from the fixture last year, where a Chris Whelpdale header was enough to earn a 1-0 win at Rodney Parade.
