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.
