  • Onto the game...

After falling to an agonising late defeat at Newport last time out, Dino Maamria and his ambitous squad are eager to hit back and gain maximum points now from a two game home stand, as Crewe Alexandra and Port Vale visit the Lamex Stadium within the space of just three days.

Stevenage find themselves sat just inside the play-off spots with a packed bunch waiting behind, ready to capitalise on any possible slip-up on the horizon.

Crewe have had a below-par start to the season with just 12 points from 13 games. The Railwaymen have found life particularly difficult on the road, the club still searching for a first away win with just one draw and five defeats recorded on their travels.

The clubs away record is only worsened by their goal difference - just one goal scored and eleven goals conceded away from Gresty Road see them bottom of the away table in Sky Bet League Two.

That will be of little concern to the Stevenage squad though as they know that on their day, Crewe are a match for any team in the division.

Stevenage boss, Dino Maamria:

“We have looked after the players this week and we have done a fair bit of talking as well to end out mindset right and what we have to do is keep moving forward.

"We are on the right track but if you sit still on the right track, cars can run over you so we have got to keep moving forward and that is what I have told the players.

“We just need to be ready; we have been good at home, the fans have been brilliant in backing us and they have played a big part towards us averaging over 2 points per game at home. We would like to make that better and that starts from Saturday."
