Stevenage are hoping to move on from their weekend defeat as they take the long journey to Plymouth for Tuesday’s fixture.

The Hertfordshire club suffered their first loss of the season to Southend but captain Dean Wells says they owe a big performance to the fans.

“It is a long trip. We owe not just the fans but ourselves a big performance because we let ourselves down [against Southend]. Hopefully we can put it right Tuesday with a win.” said Wells, speaking to The Advertiser.


“We’ve got boys in there that have played in front of bigger crowds [than at Home Park].


“Those people in the changing room will lift the people that haven’t been there. We can inspire each other.”

Stevenage manager Graham Westley believes his side are facing a tough side with a huge fan base.

“It’s a big football club and any big football club and with the pulling power they have, and the supporter base, any club like that is going to be a tough place to visit,” said the 46-year-old, also speaking to The Advertiser.


“It’s an opportunity to bounce back and there’s nothing like bouncing back on a Tuesday when you have had a disappointing result on the Saturday.”
