Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Stevenage will look to build on a hard-fought 3-2 win over AFC Wimbledon when they take on Rochdale on Matchday 35. The Boro did well to put an end to their five-game winless run, with team remaining in automatic promotion berth, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to secure a top-three finish. Since first-choice goalkeeper Taye Ashby-Hammond remains in the recovery room, Toby Savin should start in goal. Danny Rose should be cautious as he is only one yellow card away from suspension.
The Dale, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom with only 22 points in their pockets, and given their poor form, away win should be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but experienced forward Scott Quigley should sneak into the starting XI. In the first half of the season Stevenage defeated Rochdale thanks to Carl Piergianni’s goal.
Highlighted Player (Liam Kelly):
Born in Newport Pagnell, England Liam Kelly is a right-footed midfielder who plays for Coventry City in the League One. Kelly is a product of Milton Keynes Dons football school, but he did not play for the club at senior level. The English footballer started his senior career at Scottish club Kilmarnock, but after making 100 appearances in the league for the Killie, he moved to England, signing a three-and-a-half-year deal with Bristol City.
The English footballer played for the likes of Oldaham Athletic and Leyton Orient as well before joining Coventry City in the summer of 2017. His main position is central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both defensive and right midfielder as well.
His preferred foot is right. He made his league debut with Coventry City on August 5, 2017 in a 3-0 win over Notts County, while scoring his first goal for the club in a 3-1 win over Stevenage in April, 2018.
Highlighted Team (Stevenage):
Based in Hertfordshire, England, Stevenage Borough are a professional club that compete in the League Two. The Boro are well known for their red and white home hit, while dark blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. Stevenage play their home games at Broadhall Way, the stadium which can hold up to 6,722 spectators and they were founded in 1976.
The Boro have won FA Trophy on two occasions (2006/07, 2008/09), with the team clinching the Herts Senior Cup title in the 2008/09 season thanks to a 2-1 win over Cheshunt. Luton are considered one of the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in matches between the two sides.
In 2015 fighting broke out between rival fans near to the end of the clash at the Lamex. It has to be noted that Stevenage Borough were founded in 1976 after the bankruptcy of Stevenage Athletic.
