- Onto the game…
A 2-1 defeat at Crystal Palace on Tuesday night was only Stevenage’s first defeat in five pre-season games this summer. Despite the result, supporters, management team and players alike were all encouraged by the performance which saw the Eagles on the back-foot for much of the contest.
New signing Kurtis Guthrie will not take part in tonight’s game as he finishes off his rehabilitation from an injury sustained last season, although Danny Newton could feature again after picking up a knock early in pre-season.
With the Premier League starting a week later than the EFL, Watford are less further ahead in their preparations for the season and as such, have only played two friendlies. Whilst away in Austria on a pre-season training camp, they came away unbeaten with a win against Fortuna Dusseldorf and a draw with Koln.
There have been six in's and seven out's at Vicarage Road this summer, the most notable of those being the arrival of Gerard Deulofeu from Barcelona and the sale of Richarlison to Everton just earlier this week.
It is hoped that former Stevenage player Ben Wilmot will make an earlier than expected return to the Lamex Stadium tonight after his club record sale in May.
