​Boro are back in action at The Lamex Stadium for the final time this season, as we prepare for a Sky Bet League Two clash against John Yems' Crawley Town...

Last time out, Boro completed a league double against rivals Cambridge United, beating the U's 1-0 at the Abbey Stadium with a second-half Luke Norris goal denying Cambridge automatic promotion on the day.
 
Cambridge were top of the table going into this fixture and after the game, Boro boss Alex Revell stated, "There was a bit of pressure coming into the game today. It is a derby and there were fans in here and we were disappointed our fans were not.
 
But they replied from Tuesday’s result with real quality and desire and togetherness and all the things we talk about, we’re really pleased with the result because the players deserve it for all their hardwork".

Crawley Town are currently managed by John Yems and currently occupy 13th place in the League Two table, holding play-off chasing Forest Green Rovers to a goalless draw last week. The Red Devils have endured a steady season, sitting mid-table with their last away win coming against Bradford City earlier this month with goals from Jordan Tunnicliffe and Joe McNerney.
 
In the earlier encounter between the two sides in February, Boro emerged victorious with a 1-0 win courtesy of a second-half screamer from Elliot Osborne. Boro's last home win against Crawley came in 2019, with a brace from James Ball resulting in a 2-1 win

In the build-up to Saturday's game, manager Alex Revell stated, "It was really important that we bounced back from the losses and we done it in brilliant fashion, so we're all looking forward to the last home game of the season.

We can finish the season strong and enjoy the next two games with a real desire and appetite to ensure we win both. We have to show our best mindset and attitude to get a result because if we don't, standards will drop.

It's really important that we finish the season strong. We want to get two more wins and we want to get as high as we can in the league".
