Stevenage defender Jack King is hoping that the club can start climbing the Sky Bet League Two table.

The 32-year-old is disappointed with Boro’s current league position but he is determined to put that right.

King told CometSport: “We started off pretty well in the league but we haven’t been picking up as many points as we’d like, especially away from home.

“At the start of the season nobody wanted to be where we are now and we are definitely looking up rather than down.

“With this group of players we need to be higher up the league and only we can fix that.

“We’ve picked up a bit in the league of late and we need to perform again on Saturday.”

King believes that new additions to the squad in the January transfer window could help lift the club.

“The players don’t get involved in transfer business too much but fresh faces are never a bad thing,” he said.

“It sometimes lifts the group, it happened last year in January when I came back, Connor Oglive came in and so did a few others.

“Fresh faces can give you a different dynamic and I’m sure if players do come in they’ll be pushing for places.”
