After securing all three points on Tuesday against rivals Cambridge United, Boro return to league action at the Lamex Stadium on Saturday, facing Scunthorpe United in the first fixture of 2021.

Charlie Carter's first half strike was enough to see off Cambridge as Alex Revell's men moved off the bottom of League Two. 
 
Scoring his first goal of the season, Carter said ''I am happy to get back on the scoresheet and we know how important every game is and when you're down there, we need to be picking up points and hopefully, we can build on this game on Saturday and secure another win.''

Stevenage manager, Alex Revell said, ''Tuesday's performance was really solid all round and when you ultimately take a chance that comes your way, you have something to hold on to and something to build on and for me, that was really pleasing to see.
 
''We know that we have got to win our home games. If you can do that and pick up points away from home, you're going to put yourself in a really good place. We have prepared well this week and we will be ready for Saturday in terms of fitness and energy.'' 
 
Scunthorpe United first-team coach, Neil Cox, said, ''In order to pick on points on Saturday, we have to defend well and counter-attack really well because when we have done this, there have been some excellent results on the road and I strongly believe if we play to our strengths, we can get all three points on Saturday.''
