Who knows how this is going to go? I'd like to think we have enough for a decent win against teddy's boys but as my last few predictions have shown I know naff all about football. None the less I am predicting a 2-0 gas victory with our new signing hopefully making his debut.

I could be wrong but from what I've heard Stevenage are a very big, very physical side. I believe they put the ball in the box at every opportunity.

We need to cut out the silly errors at the back because the first goal could be crucial as we seldom come from behind to win.

We made a very poor start at Crawley but played some great stuff in the second half. We need to make sure we at it from the first whistle this time.

We have an awful home record but hopefully the win against Carlisle can be the start of a better run of results at the Mem.

Think this will be another tough match but I'm hoping we can sneak another win. Rovers 2-1 Stevenage

Parkes struggles against big physical strikers. Great

Who's told you that? We have a big lad up front but apart from that we're a load of midgets!

Haven't won away in 14 leagues games now I think, last away win was in April, can only see a Rovers win unfortunately! 2-1 Rovers.

Somebody was talking about Stevenage on the radio recently and saying fans might find it odd that a gifted footballer like Sheringham has his team playing such a direct game. They went on to say he's simply playing to his teams strengths as they are a big, physical side.

Non of our centre backs are particularly big or strong in the air against a big target man so your guy up front will probably get some joy tonight.

Bad runs always end at some point. We finally won our first league 2 home match in 3 month's last time out and are obviously hoping it's the start of a better run of results at the Mem but I wouldn't bank on it. We have one of the worst home records in the football league.

Every time I think we're going to win - like at Crawley last Saturday, Newport at home and against Chesham in the cup - we end up losing and matches I thought we might struggle in we've managed to win.

I've given up trying to predict Rovers game. I haven't got a clue what to expect tonight.

Looks like normal service has been resumed then.

Same old shit tonight. Sloppy defending and wasteful attacking summed up really by the Stevenage winner. Good finish and that but sloppy from the midfield giving the ball away. Very, very frustrating.

Unfortunately we couldn't kick on from the win over Carlisle and our dreadful home form remains a real concern.

Dominated much of the match, 60% possession and nearly 20 attempts on goal. Problem is only 3 of those were on target!

Including corners and free kicks we must have put 50 crosses in the box last night but probably only won about 2 headers.

We've got to find a way to turn possession and pressure into goals at home.

Another individual error gifted Boro a free shot for the first goal and the second was a great strike.

We've been beaten by cracking shots from distance in 3 of the last 4 games.
