Stevenage return to league action at The Lamex Stadium this Saturday with a clash against Tranmere Rovers....

Last time out, Alex Revell's men exited the FA Cup at Third Round stage on Saturday, falling 2-0 to Championship side Swansea City. However, Boro took a number of postives from the game by having more possession and shots on target than the visitors, while also missing a late penalty.

Stevenage will be looking to make wrongs right as league action continues with the visit of Tranmere Rovers for a 3pm kick-off.

Keith Hill’s Tranmere currently occupy 15th place and managed to secure a place in the Fourth Round of the Papa John’s Trophy on Wednesday, beating Leicester City Under 21s 4-2. 

Tranmere have had a mixed league campaign thus far, having recorded 8 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses after relegation from League One last season. Boro’s last victory against Saturday’s opponents came in a 3-1 win in 2014 with goals from Jimmy Smith, Darius Charles and John Mousinho.

Stevenage manager Alex Revell said, "The message is clear. Continue what we are doing. They have set standards that are higher than we have seen for a long time. 

We know what it takes to win games – hard work, energy, intensity and then on top of that the quality of play at times recently has been fantastic, so we have to keep producing those kind of performances".

Tranmere Rovers manager Keith Hill said, "We’ll go there to try and win the game, but we have to fundamentally do the basics to give us an opportunity.

Consistency comes from repetitive and good habits, and I think you have to judge the team where we are now over the period of games that we have played.

We are always rooting for opportunities to create more points and get them on the board".
