Stevenage boss Dino Maamria is expecting a tough match against Crewe at the Lamex on Saturday.
The Boro boss is looking for his side to get back on track after a late defeat against Newport County on Saturday and wants his players to show that they have learnt from the previous matches, which have ended in defeat.
Speaking to CometSport at the club’s training ground, the 46-year-old Tunisian is urging his men to get back to winning ways.
The charismatic former player said “Crewe are a difficult team because on their day, they can play teams off the park but other days they don’t look as good; they’ve had an inconsistent start to the season”
Every win we’ve had at home has been hard. Every game is difficult at this level and if you look at the league table, that tells you everything you need to know.”
We’ve been good at home and the fans have been brilliant and have played a big part.”
Boro currently sit in 7th place with 3 wins and 2 losses from their last 5 league games, compared to
Crewe who are perched in 18th place, 4 points above the relegation zone with a solitary win, 3 losses and 1 draw from their last 5 games.
Last time these teams met, Crewe salvaged a point in the last minute to draw 2-2 at the Lamex and this result, along with another disappointing draw the week after, proved to be curtains for Darren Sarll whose 2-year tenure as manager ended a few days after the back to back stalemates.
Maamria went on to say “If you don’t do enough to win the game, you put the squad at risk, one mistake could cost you and that’s what happened but we will learn from that.”
What we’ve got to do next time is go and try and win it rather than holding onto the draw. The squad learnt from that and hopefully we can be stronger from there.”
We’ve got to keep moving forward, we are on the right track, but if you sit still on that track, cars will run over you so you have to keep moving but we are on the right track.”
