PREVIEW: Stevenage vs Newport County

11 March 2022

County will be aiming to secure a league double over Stevenage when we visit Hertfordshire on Saturday.

The reverse fixture at Rodney Parade was a 5-0 rout over the Boro in Newport boss James Rowberry's first home game in charge of the club.

Stevenage have had a manager change since that though, with Paul Tisdale currently having the club in 21st in League Two, with his side winless in seven.

Newport will be looking to secure back-to-back wins after last Saturday's 1-0 win over Bristol Rovers courtesy of James Waite's first goal for the club.

County can welcome back defender James Clarke from a one-match ban while Oli Cooper has been ruled a "doubt" for the weekend. The Exiles will still be without Josh Pask, Robbie Willmott, Courtney Baker-Richardson, Courtney Senior and Priestley Farquharson due to injury.

The Exiles are unbeaten against Stevenage in our last four meetings, with two wins and two draws following said loss on New Years Day 2019. The last contest at the Lamex ended in a 1-0 County win thanks to Tristan Abrahams' penalty. 

Stevenage are currently 12th in the League Two home table, winning six of their 17 games on home turf while Newport are 9th in the away standings, but will have to get used to travelling again following the completion of a five-game stretch of home games.

Dom Telford still leads the League Two scoring charts with a staggering 24 goals in 26 while Stevenage's top scorers this campaign are Elliot List and Luke Norris, who have eight each.
