Stevenage are on the road again this Saturday, as we prepare for an important clash against Paul Hurst’s Grimsby Town....
Last time out, Boro were held to a 0-0 draw against Steve Ball’s Colchester United at The Lamex Stadium. Manager Alex Revell was encouraged by the performance, stating ‘’We deserved to win the game. We weathered the storm in the first five minutes of the second half but after that, we really showed people what we are about.’’

Paul Hurst’s side currently occupy 23rd place in League Two, suffering a 3-0 defeat in their last fixture against local rivals, Scunthorpe United. The Mariners are winless in their last seven league games, recording their last victory against Scunthorpe United in the reverse fixture during December, with defender Matty Pollock grabbing the game’s only goal.
The previous meeting between these two sides produced a 0-0 draw at the Lamex Stadium, but Boro’s last win against Saturday’s opponents came in a 2-0 away win in 2019, courtesy of a Kurtis Guthrie brace.
Alex Revell is hoping for a stronger squad in upcoming weeks ahead of a hectic schedule as midfielders Chris Lines, Tom Pett and Jack Aitchison remain closely monitored and Scott Cuthbert remains a doubt following an injury in Tuesday’s warmup.

Before the game, manager Alex Revell said, ''The game is all about three points. The players are full of confidence and belief that we can go out there and get a win.
We want to bounce back after defeat at Exeter last week and we want to win, show people what we have got and play with confidence.
''There has been improvement in recent weeks and we need to keep it going down the line, take our chances and get some wins together'.
