STEVENAGE Boro fans can relax - their scoring sensation Steve Morison is going nowhere according to his manager.

Morison has reached the 20-goal mark already in league and cup matches this season, prompting talk of a move to Championships neighbours Luton Town.

But Boro boss Mark Stimson assured supporters when he said: "It's just speculation; when you have someone who has scored more than 20 goals so far, that will happen.

"We don't want to lose him. I know he has got a lot more goals in him.

"Steve is very happy here. He is scoring goals and that makes him happy...........and me as well."

The Hatters are looking for replacements following the sale of star players Carlos Edwards and Rowan Vine.
