Aramide Oteh believes that the beginnings of a natural partnership with Danny Newton are starting to be seen after Stevenage’s 2-1 win over Port Vale.

The pair both scored at the Lamex Stadium on Tuesday night in what was Boro’s first win in 11 League Two games and the on-loan QPR striker says the difference in styles is key to the budding strike force.

He said: “Newts is very good at winning flick-ons and I’m more about running onto them so we work well together.

“I just tried to gamble on the flick-on and I saw a gap so I drove in and had the shot.

“Fortunately it went in.”
