GRAHAM WESTLEY believes Stevenage have a good opportunity to beat Tranmere Rovers on Saturday, but he knows it won’t be easy.
Boro, who have picked up four points from their last two games, have endured a similar start to the season as Saturday’s opponents having both won a single game so far this term.
Stevenage, however, have the inside track on Tranmere having spoken to former captain Mark Roberts, whose Fleetwood Town side beat Rovers in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy on Tuesday.
“It’s always dangerous to underestimate a team according to their start,” he explained.
“If you looked at our start you could think we’re struggling, which we’re not. There have been loads of good things and a few mishaps along the way.

“So from my point of view I don’t underestimate anybody. I expect them to come with a stern challenge but we got a good insight on them from talking to Roberts.
“We’ve got a good opportunity to win the three points but it won’t be easy.”

He added: “The squad is in good spirits and looking forward to the game. There is a good air around the camp.
“The last couple of weeks have seen the results match our performances and now we’ve got to make sure now results really do reflect improved performances going forward.”
