After picking up a point on the road against Cheltenham Town on Boxing Day, Stevenage return to action at the Lamex Stadium on Tuesday with a League Two clash against rivals Cambridge United - Boro's final game of 2020...
''Jack showed what a top talent he is with real quality, it was a fantastic finish. That shows how committed he is to doing well, but it also shows you get your rewards.''
Tuesday's visitors are currently in 8th place and Mark Bonner's men come into this fixture off the back of victory, beating Leyton Orient 2-1 courtesy of goals from Wes Hoolahan and Paul Mullin. The U's had remained unbeaten against Boro in their last seven Derby Day meetings before suffering a 4-0 loss last season after goals from Elliott List, Jake Cassidy, Charlie Carter and Charlie Lakin. Cambridge have won two of their last six league games, having not won on the road since beating Walsall 2-0 in October.
Luke Prosser is once again available for selection after serving his one-match ban and Jack Aitchison will be pushing to start after his return from the bench on Saturday.
Stevenage manager Alex Revell said, ''Cambridge are a strong side, they are organised, very good on the counter attack and so for us it's about dealing with their threats and on the flip side, making sure we show more quality in the final third and taking our chances.
''It's a derby so I'm sure that having fans would have helped us, the players need to know about the occasion and we must make sure that we compete, win our battles, win our individual duels and ensure our mentality and ethic for tomorrow's game is right.''
Cambridge manager Mark Bonner said, ''We have got a big week ahead of us starting with Tuesday's derby against Stevenage, and we need to back up our last result and deliver to ensure we get back into the play-off picture.
''Everyone in the team is going to be used and needed at different times due to the tight run of fixtures, so Tuesday's game provides a great opportunity to get back to where we were''.
