Boro get set for Hereford test

Westley’s side hoping for back-to-back away wins

STEVENAGE will be looking to record back-to-back wins when they face basement side Hereford United tonight.

Boro notched their first away win of the season at Lincoln on Saturday thanks to on-loan Chris Holroyd’s debut goal and hopes are high that Graham Westley’s side can come away from Herefordshire with another three points to their name.

Edgar Street was a happy hunting ground for Boro during the Bulls’ Conference days but manager Westley insists his team will be taking nothing for granted against the only team in League 2 not to have registered a home win in four attempts so far this season and scoring just once.

“Hereford is of course a place we know well,” said Westley.

“It’s a tough place to visit but we have happy memories there with our play-off win in 2005. Hereford have now moved on from their Conference days and we will prepare for the game in the normal way.”

The Boro boss remained tight-lipped about the prospects of skipper Mark Roberts returning for the trip after missing the clash at Lincoln and said: “Robbo is injured and who knows how quickly it takes our bodies to recover?”
