Matchday Guide | Stevenage (A)

14 March 2023

Crewe Alexandra will aim to build on their dramatic 4-3 win over Salford when they visit Stevenage on Tuesday (7:45pm).

Lee Bell’s seven-unbeaten side will be on a high following the impressive victory over promotion-chasers Salford, but will be under no illusions about the size of the task that awaits them at Lamex Stadium.

The Opposition

Stevenage are having an impressive this season, and sit third in the table on 63 points with a game in hand on fellow promotion-chasers Northampton Town, who sit fourth.

Boro have had a mixed run in their last five games, only winning twice in the last month, though were 3-1 victors on Saturday against Walsall, with Josh March (x2) and Luke Norris scoring the decisive goals.

The Gaffer

Steve Evans took the reins in March 2022, guiding the club to EFL safety last season. This term they have pulled off a huge shock in the FA Cup by knocking out Premier League side Aston Villa in the third round.

Evans’s career high came between 2012 and 2014, where he took Rotherham United from League Two to the Championship in successive seasons. His EFL pedigree is hard to match.

Team News

Rod McDonald will serve his second of a three-match ban. Christopher Long and Zac Williams remain sidelined for the Alex.

Taye Ashby-Hammond and Elliot List remain out for Boro for the fixture, although there may be a chance Terence Vancooten features in the squad.

Head-to-Head

The sides share an equal head-to-head record, winning six of the 15 ties apiece. Three clashes have ended in draws.

Earlier this season, Stevenage emerged as 2-1 winners at Mornflake Stadium courtesy of a brace from Jamie Reid.

Officials

Alan Young has been appointed referee for Tuesday’s encounter, having last officiated the Alex in January 2021, a 4-1 defeat away to Gillingham in League One.

He will be assisted by Paul Lister-Flynn and Marc Wilson, with Sam Purkiss appointed as fourth official.

Elsewhere in League Two

Newport County v AFC Wimbledon; Northampton Town v Mansfield Town; Sutton United v Grimsby Town; Walsall v Swindon Town.
