  • Onto the game...

After an unbeaten start to the season that lasted four games, defeat to Yeovil Town last Saturday was a real blow to the team as fatigue played its part in the 2-0 loss at Huish Park.

A 5-0 midweek win against Swansea U21s in the Checkatrade Trophy helped build up confidence again, as Kennedy (two) and Guthrie (three) ran riot in-front of goal.

Such was the level of performance that it moved Maamria to claim a number of the players involved on Tuesday would be drafted into Saturday’s starting XI.

The U’s have got off to a slow start this season with just one win from their opening five games. That came in their second match of the campaign, a 3-2 win at Notts County thanks to a last-minute Barry Corr goal.

Stevenage fans will know all too well about Barry Corr, the Cambridge frontman has a fearsome record against Boro in recent years including two goals in their last visit to the Lamex Stadium, back in April.

Coming into the game on the back of two straight defeats, Cambridge will be desperate for another derby win tomorrow as pressure mounts on the U’s once again.

  • Team news...

It is believed Dino Maamria has an almost full squad to select from with just Michael Timlin unavailable following his red card at Yeovil last Saturday.

After an additional 60 minutes in the tank on Tuesday night, Danny Newton is expected to be back to almost full fitness following time out with a rib injury.

  • View from the camp...

Stevenage boss, Dino Maamria:

“We know how important it is for me and for the fans. It is always a feisty affair between the two and we want to win it not just because of that, but we also want to win to be better than them and to move up the league again.

“I think a win will get us top four and that is the aim for this weekend, regardless of the opposition.”

  • Previous meetings...

Played: 22 | Won: 9 | Drawn: 4 | Lost: 4

Historically speaking, only Goal Difference can seperate the two sides as a superior +5 GD just about edges Boro ahead of their local rivals.

It is a rivalry that has unfortunately been fairly one sided in recent seasons, with the U’s having won three of the last four games including one draw.

The last time Stevenage came out on top was in 2016 when Byron Harrison scored twice in a 2-0 home win.

REPORT: Stevenage 0-1 Cambridge

1 September 2018

Onto Macclesfield...

Stevenage slumped to a 0-1 defeat at home to Cambridge United on Saturday as the U’s recorded a third straight win over Boro.

In a game that seemed to lack both energy and quality, Maamria’s men never really got going and as such, Amoo’s first half goal was enough to separate the two sides.

The Manager named five changes from the previous weekend’s defeat at Yeovil, most notably bringing in James Ferry and former scholar, Andronicos Georgiou, both starting their first ever league games for the club.

Boro got off to a slow start and were ultimately punished for it in the 15th minute. After an uncharacteristic error by Farman saw the goalkeeper spill Brown’s initial shot, Iberhe was abe to get his cross in for Amoo who had a simple back-post finish to give Cambridge the lead.

Boro struggled to get any momentum going throughout the first half and despite neither side looking likely to score, it was the visitors who were more cohesive with their attacks.

Lambe headed over the bar on 30 minutes following a pin-point cross from Halliday and in truth that was as close to either side came to adding to the score in the first half.

At half-time Sonupe came on for recently signed Seddon as Stevenage changed both personnel and shape in the chase for an equaliser.

The changes brought about an improved performance from the team as they began to look much more dangerous throughout the half, helped by the introductions of Kennedy and Guthrie before the hour mark.

Cambridge continued to cause a threat though and not for the first time in the game, Lambe skewed a header wide when he should have done better. Moments on from that, if it wasn't for Henry’s timely challenge with 20 minutes to go, Iberhe would have surely been in for a second Cambridge goal.

Luke Wilkinson missed his own header shortly after as he connected with Byrom’s corner but the centre-back couldn’t keep his effort down.

The ever-dangerous Lambe wrapped an ambition effort just wide of the post from all of 30 yards out as both sides went on the search for a pivotal second goal.

The closest Stevenage would come to an equaliser came with just minutes to go, as Sonupe worked wanders out wide to skip past a whole host of Cambridge players, before forcing the save from Forde. As the ball ricochet inside the box, no Boro man could turn it in from close range.

Stevenage will have to make amends in seven days time when Macclesfield visit the Lamex Stadium as Cambridge took home all three points.
