Match Preview: Stevenage

We take a look ahead to this weekend's opening game at Stevenage

The Match

Sky Bet League Two

Stevenage Borough Vs Tranmere Rovers

Saturday 4th August 2018

3:00pm at the Lamex Stadium

 

Team News

Our first game of the season and our first back in the EFL could include up to 9 of Rovers new summer signings, including the permanent moves of loan players.

Rovers go into the game with major doubts over the fitness of Liam Ridehalgh (Knee), Adam Buxton (Double Hernia) and Evan Gumbs (Leg) as they have only recently returned to light training at The Campus. 

Ollie Norburn (Shin) and Scott Davies (Hip) missed our last pre season friendly against Rochdale so their fitness will be assessed ahead of the trip down South.

Stevenage have added 14 new players to the summer including veteran winger Jamal Campbell-Ryce, Scott Cuthbert, Kurtis Guthrie, Michael Timlin and Paul Farman.

 

Head to Head

Our first ever game against Stevenage was back in 2011 at the Lamex Stadium which resulted in a   2-1 win to the home side. Our two victories against Borough have come at PrentonPark, 3-0 and 3-1 victories.

Match Reports

Match Report: Stevenage 2-2 Tranmere

4 August 2018

 

Rovers got off to a rollercoaster start to life back in Sky Bet League Two with a 2-2 draw at Stevenage

Tranmere showed great character to come back from two goals down on a very hot afternoon at the Lamex Stadium

It was a lively start to the game with Rovers having the majority of possession and attacking play. Firstly, Jennings ran with the ball and tried a shot from distance and then in the 5th minute, Stockton glanced a header wide from a Jonny Smith corner.

On the 11th minute, Bakayogo beat his man down the left and hit a low cross into the six yard box however none of his team mates could get onto the end of it.

Soon after, Stevenage had their first sight on goal. Kennedy advanced down the left and cut back towards the penalty spot but McNulty was well positioned to clear for Tranmere.

These were the warnings signs for Rovers and on the 20th minute the deadlock was broken. After what looked like a foul on the edge of the box, Jimmy Ball collected the ball and struck an effort across Scott Davies and into the bottom left corner. Advantage to the home side.

Before Tranmere could settle again, it was 2-0. A near carbon copy of the first, this time Byrom curling a shot into the far corner from 20 yards against the run of play.

The two goal deficit never seemed to faze Rovers too much as they responded quickly with a goal of their own on the 33rd minute. A sweeping passing move eventually saw Jennings play a ball through to Norwood who slid under the keeper to get one back.

Into the second half, Rovers started with real purpose and were rewarded just 10 minutes after the break. Smith looped a free kick into the box, Sutton nodded it towards the six yard box and Norwood was on hand to scramble it over the line for the equaliser.

The momentum was turmng Tranmere's way and substitute Ben Tollitt breezed past the already booked Hunt who brought him down with a sliding tackle. Stevenage down to 10 men with 20 minutes left to play.

Minutes later, Tollitt was causing more problems down the left as he fired across the box for the onrushing Norwood who forced a great save out of Farman.

Stevenage were still a threat on the counter attack and went close on a few occasions. Firstly, Revell tried to back heel at the front post and then Nugent headed inches wide as the game started to wind down.

The heat was starting to play more of a factor in the game as both teams were struggling to keep up the tempo in the dying minutes.

Despite late pressure from Rovers, they couldn't find the winner and took a well earned point back to the Wirral.

Team: Davies, Caprice, McNulty, Sutton, Bakayogo, Jennings, Harris, Banks, Smith (Tollitt 67'), Norwood, Stockton

Unused subs: George, Ellis, Monthe, Gilmour, Cole, Mullin
