  • Onto the game...

Stevenage head into Friday's game full of confidence after two straight wins against Grimsby Town and Carlisle United have kept Boro in the Play-Off conversation.

Boro's form away from home has been encouraging too - the team are currently five unbeaten on the road, stretching back to February's dramatic draw at Lincoln CIty.

At the other end of the table, Port Vale have eased any lingering relegation fears with a run of four wins from their past eight games. For a more comprehensive opposition preview, read our Scouting Report.

  • Team News...

Danny Newton and Alex Revell are both doubts as the two strikers have struggled with their fitness in recent weeks. Port Vale are in good shape. Only Manny Oyeleke, who has recently been partnering Tom Conon in midfield, is likely to be a forced absentee.

  • Boot in both camps…

Port Vale's Tom Conlon and Michael Tonge have both recently played for Stevenage as the two midfielders joined the Valiants in 2018 and 2017 respectively.

Conlon joined Stevenage originally on-loan from Peterborough in September 2014 and adfter impressing during his short spell with the club, signed a permanent deal in the following January. After three season's with the club, Conlon moved closer to home as the Stoke-born player signed for Port Vale.

Michael Tonge joined Stevenage in 2015 and in his first season, won the club's Player of the Year award for an outstanding campaign at the heart of central midfield. After one more year with the club, Tonge moved onto pastures new as he signed for Port Vale in August 2017.
