Tranmere Rovers have earmarked Stevenage winger Luke Freeman as the man to look out for ahead of their Sky Bet League 1 clash at The Lamex Stadium on Saturday.

The former Arsenal man’s two wonder-strikes in the 3-2 victory over Bradford City last weekend have certainly not gone unnoticed by Boro’s rivals.

Rovers assistant boss John McMahon spoke to his club’s website about Boro.

He said: “They’re competitive and hardworking. They’re direct - a lot of goals are scored from set plays, long throw-ins and free-kicks so we need to be switched on when we get in those positions.

“But they can also play a bit when they get in the final third and [Luke] Freeman is a good, good player.”

Stevenage go into the game on the back of a three-match unbeaten streak after wins over Crewe Alexandra and Bradford and Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw at Crawley Town.

Tranmere are also unbeaten in three with draws against Bristol City and Oldham and a victory over Coventry City.
