Stevenage full-back Ronnie Henry thinks his side could replicate former club Luton Town’s form and make a surge up the League Two table

Boro have won three of their last six league matches and another win at Tranmere Rovers at the weekend would build further mid-season momentum.

Henry’s previous employers Luton, where he spent two seasons including winning the Conference Premier as captain last year, have notched seven wins on the bounce to rise from mid-table obsecurity to league leaders.

Henry said: “We know we are only three points of the playoffs at the moment and although I do not often look at the table, it is something to aim for.

“As I have said before, the league is very close. A few wins, like you have seen from Luton, has seen them go to the top of the league so the belief is there for everyone.

“We are confident and enjoying training at the moment so anything can happen if we stay focussed.”

A rise up the league would require Stevenage to improve their away form, but Henry does not feel they are too far away from getting more consistent results.

He continued; “I do not think there is much difference between our performances home and away on the whole. Stevenage is a good place to play where the fans get behind us. It is not an easy place for opponents to come so we make the most of that and I think teams do the same to us on their own patches.”

The defender expects a tough Tranmere trip but thinks there is nothing to fear on Merseyside.

He said: “We have not been that bad on the road this season. It has just been the final results which have let us down.

“I think we played well at Oxford. It was not exactly flowing football but we got a point and a clean sheet so there was a lot to learn from that.

“Tranmere are in a transition period and struggling near the foot of the table so if there was ever a good time to play them, perhaps it is now so we just have to give it our best shot and hopefully we can grab the three points.”
