Our prediction for this League 2 match:
All eyes will be on Edgeley Park when Stockport and Stevenage face each other in the League Two derby on Matchday 33. The Hatters look unstoppable at the moment, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive league win, but Saturday’s game will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Kyle Wootton, who scored a brace in the midweek triumph, whereas there are no fresh injury worries ahead of the visit of Stevenage.
The Boro, on the other hand, aim to stay in the automatic promotion berth, and given their attacking potential, we believe that gamblers from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on over 2.5 goals. Stevenage defender Luther Wildin has yet to recover from the injury he suffered in a 3-2 loss to Bradford City.
Highlighted Player (Jake Taylor):
Jake Taylor is a product of the Reading football academy who plays for Exeter City in the League Two. Taylor spent his youth career at Reading, and he continued wearing the blue and white shirt at senior level.
After scoring two goals in 31 appearances with the Royals in the league, the English footballer spent several seasons on loan at the likes of Aldershot Town, Exeter City, Cheltenham Town, Crawley Town, Leyton Orient, and Motherwell. In 2016 Jake Taylor returned to Exeter City, signing a permanent deal with the St James Park outfit.
Despite being born in Ascot, England, on December 1, 1991, Taylor represents Wales on the international stage. He has ten caps with the Wales U21 team, and he made his debut with the Dragons at the senior level in a 2-1 win over Cyprus on October 13, 2014. His primary position is central midfielder.
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.
