  • Onto the game...

Defeat at Exeter on Tuesday night brought the end to an unforgiven two game road trip that saw the team travel the length and breadth of the country inside only three days.

Three points at Carlisle last Saturday helped make up for the defeat though as Stevenage return home looking for a fourth home win out of six games.

The U's are still unbeaten away from home this season with four draws and one win on their travels.

With Colchester just one point and three places above Boro in fourth position, it's another big game with plenty on the line.

  • View from the camp...

Stevenage boss, Dino Maamria:

"Colchester are a good team. They impressed me last season, it is their Mangers third season in charge now and I think they expect to get promoted. They had good players already, they recruited well in the summer and they are one of the best teams in the league.

“It will be a tough test for us but it is one we are looking forward to."

  • Previous meetings...

Played: 10 | Won: 1 | Drawn: 2 | Lost: 7

The U's have proven to be formiddable opponents over the years with their only defeat coming in our very first meeting, a 6-1 hammering on Boxing Day in 2011 at the Colchester Community Stadium.

Dino Maamria made his Managerial bow at the football club last season against Colchester where a first half Mickael Mandron strike made it a debut to forget.
