Stevenage attacking midfielder scored his first goal of the season at Yeovil

Tom Pett says he is enjoying his role in the centre of Stevenage’s attack.

The 23-year-old has spent much of his Boro career out on the wing, but has recently been deployed centrally with more of a free role to go searching for the ball and start Stevenage attacks.

The former Potters Bar man also scored his first goal of the campaign at the weekend with a rare header from a Connor Ogilvie free-kick, and says he’ll be looking to try to add to that this weekend when Luton come to town.

“We’ll be ready for the game this weekend, don’t worry about that. It’s a big one for the fans, but the players too. We need to work hard this week and whether I’m in the centre or out wide I’m just happy to start,” Pett said.

“I’m playing more centrally now which I think helps me to get on the ball a bit more, which I’m confident in doing.

“Connor says he kicked the floor [for the free-kick], but it’s a move we’ve worked on on the training ground.

“It’s good to get off the mark [for the season]. I think I scored one headed goal last year so I’ll try to get more this season, but I’m happy whichever way they go in. Off the head, or off the shoulder.”
