Tranmere Rovers vs Northampton Town on 08 May 23
Boro were weaker away from home last season though, losing more games and considerably scoring fewer goals which is something they will be wary of for their League One journey. Northampton Town form (all competitions): Stevenage form (all competitions): Team News Northampton Town welcomed back club captain Jon Guthrie in their final pre-season match following a hamstring injury, but considering his lack of minutes this summer there are question marks on if he can start after only playing 45 minutes. Tyreece Simpson and Marc Leonard both joined the club on loan this summer and were also able to feature in their victory against MK Dons, putting them into contention this weekend. There had been concern due to the fact that Shaun McWilliams and Sam Hoskins missed out on the win against MK Dons, but that was simply done for fitness purposes and both should be available.
Competing against familiar opposition could be beneficial for the hosts, but that is something that both teams will experience and therefore does not provide much advantage in this one. However, Northampton Town did get the best of their opponents last season with a victory and a draw, which could give them some confidence on Saturday. Stevenage should be bringing the same level of excitement and anticipation this weekend, setting up for an enthralling opening day game for the travelling supporters. Much like their opponents, Boro have had a got a good pre-season campaign under their belt, continuing the impressive end to the season that they experienced in League One. Steve Evans is a manager who brings tons of experience with him which is something he should be flexing, and that could prove to be vital to the club overall. Stevenage have bolstered their midfield options by signing the likes of Harry Anderson, Louis Thompson and Nick Freeman so far, all of which will add further depth to the squad.
