Match Preview: Stevenage vs Salford City

6 May 2022

Stevenage return to The Lamex Stadium for one final time this season as Salford City arrive for a Sky Bet League Two clash…

With Stevenage’s EFL safety confirmed and Salford City’s promotion hopes denied, Saturday’s match will be a good opportunity for either side to finish the campaign on a high note. Salford’s last game ended in a 2-2 draw at home to Mansfield whilst Boro fell to a 2-1 defeat in Carlisle last weekend.

Salford City were founded in 1940 but have only become a well-established English Football club in recent years. In 2014, The Ammies were taken over by former Manchester United players Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Phil Neville and Paul Scholes. This takeover saw the club climb four tiers of English Football in five years. In their debut season they won the EFL cup at Wembley Stadium.

The club have had a fairly good 2021/22 campaign as they sit tenth in Sky Bet League Two. They have won nineteen of their forty-five league games, drawing thirteen and losing thirteen. Salford sit just four points outside the play-off places but with only one game remaining, their hopes have been denied.

Stevenage and Salford City have met on just five occasions in the past with Saturday’s opponents picking up victories from all five. Stevenage look to put this right on the weekend and pick up the club’s first ever victory over Salford. This season’s reverse fixture ended 1-0 to The Ammies.
