Match pack: Stevenage (A)

4 May 2019

Another League Two campaign comes to an end on Saturday when Cheltenham travel to the Lamex Stadium to take on Stevenage (kick-off: 3pm).

It’s matchday 46 of the club’s league campaign and Michael Duff’s charges head to Hertfordshire knowing that they have secured the Robins highest Football League finish since the club has returned to the fourth tier.

It has been another campaign of changes and new faces, but with an exciting group having come together under the guidance of Duff, they’ll be aiming to end the season with a positive result away from home.

Team news

Alex Addai is in contention to be involved after returning from injury late on against Swindon last time out. Chris Hussey may not be risked which may mean Cameron Pring continues down the left-hand side.

Nigel Atangana misses out with an achilles problem. For loanees Jordan Tillson, Billy Waters, Charlie Raglan, Jacob Maddox and Pring it will be the final game of their loan spells at the club.

Watch Michael Duff’s pre-match press conference:

 

Opposition

Boro’ are one of five teams vying for the final play-off spot. Newport are currently favourites having accumulated 70 points, Exeter are 8th on 69 points, while Colchester, Carlisle and Stevenage are on 67 points heading into a final matchday that is sure to throw up plenty of different permutations throughout the afternoon.

Dino Maamria’s side have been consistently around the edge of the play-offs for much of the campaign, and under the former Southport managers leadership have put together a good squad with strength in all areas – boasting both exciting young potential and experienced pros.

Kurtis Guthrie’s recent burst of goals and form has propelled them into play-off consideration, while 35-year-old Alex Revell is another noteworthy name in their front line armoury, having also featured for Rotherham United, Cardiff City and Wigan previously.

Since signing on loan in January however, QPR youngster Ilias Chair has made a significant contribution to their threat going forward.

They also rely on experienced heads such as Michael Timlin, who at 34 has enjoyed lengthy spells at Southend and Swindon, and defensive duo Scott Cuthbert, who is ex-Luton, and Ben Nugent, who started his career at Cardiff City.
