Stevenage old boy Michael Bostwick says that his allegiance to Boro has to be put aside as he aims to fire current club Peterborough United to victory when the two sides meet this weekend, writes Damion Roberts.

The midfielder, who left the Lamex for London Road last summer, will feature on Saturday in his first match against his former employers since his move to The Posh.

During his time with Stevenage the 25-year-old experienced numerous highs including back-to-back promotions to League 1.

Last season, his first with United, he was part of a team that was relegated from the Championship, and the box-to-box midfielder says he hopes to reverse that this season despite a 2-0 defeat at Walsall on Monday.

Speaking to his new club for a feature in Saturday’s matchday programme, Bostwick said: “I really enjoyed my time at Stevenage. Obviously the back-to-back promotions was a highlight and there are a lot of good people at the club. I think we had success through the fact that we worked really hard as a unit, we put into place what the gaffer wanted us to do.

“Stevenage have established themselves as a League One club and that is great. They are very well run, I had good times there and I’m happy to see them doing well at this level.

“It is the first time I have come up against Stevenage in a competitive fixture, but that doesn’t make any difference to me really. I am a Peterborough player, my allegiance is with Peterborough and we need the result ourselves.
