Steve Davis told crewealex.net: “We have had a tough run because we have faced four of the in-form teams in the division early on but that is just the way it has turned out and the Brentford game aside I think the players have equipped themselves well.
“The players have held their own and been difficult to beat and that is the positive to come out of it so far. We have shown that we can cope and compete and we have to keep that going because it is a long season.
“Stevenage are also difficult to beat and are very resilient in their defending. They have had back-to-back promotions and reached the play-offs last season, so we are aware of what a good side they are. Their achievements are there for everyone to see and they are going well again this season.
“They have won three matches away and drawn two at home, so they are up there again. They have good, young players with a real hunger to keep on improving and that is what I have here.
He added: “I saw their recent game away at Coventry on the television and they were very good. They controlled much of that game and they deserved to win it. It will be a really difficult game for us at the weekend.”
