Boro are back in action at The Lamex Stadium this Saturday, as we prepare for a Sky Bet League Two clash with Simon Weaver's Harrogate Town...
Last time out, Boro cruised to victory against title-chasing Forest Green Rovers
, beating Mark Cooper's side 3-0 courtesy of a first-half Danny Newton brace and a second- half Elliott strike. This result meant Alex Revell's side moved up to 16th, twelve points clear of the drop zone, securing a third successive clean sheet in the process.
Speaking after Tuesday's game
, manager Alex Revell stated "It was the best performance but it’s been there for a while, it could have been more as we had chances, but we knew there was a 3-0 or a 4-0 coming.
"It's been frustrating for everyone, not just me, because we all know how good we can be. To win 3-0 and keep a clean sheet against a top team who are going for promotion is in any shape or form a top performance."

Harrogate Town are partaking in their first ever season in the Football League, currently occupying 11th place in League Two, coming off the back of a 1-0 victory against relegation threatened Barrow with Jack Muldoon scoring the game's only goal. Like Boro, Harrogate have kept three clean sheets in their last three games, with Stevenage's last meeting against Saturday's opponents
ending in a scoreless draw at The EnviroVent Stadium.
Alex Revell has no new injury concerns, but his squad may face rotation due to a busy March schedule.
After Boro's excellent performance on Tuesday, Alex Revell was named as the EFL Manager Of The Week and speaking on his team's performance
, Revell stated ''To see everything come together as it did on Tuesday, every single player deserves huge credit and not only because of the performance, because of the effort they have shown over the past 8-10 weeks on a gruelling run of games.''
Speaking on Saturday's clash
, Revell said ''This is a tough game. They have immense energy in the way that they press, they are versatile and we will be in for a challenging game on Saturday. It's a different type of game to Forest Green, and we know what to expect so we're excited and ready for what's to come.
"The 0-0 at Harrogate in October was tough, but we are a different team now and the team is in a much better place. We are not looking to maintain, we are looking to improve. We are looking to make sure that these standards are kept to the very highest levels."
