Salford City begin a double header at home on Saturday when Stevenage visit The Peninsula Stadium (KO 15:00).
After a first win for Gary Bowyer at Forest Green Rovers on Monday, the Ammies will be hoping to put a positive run together with eight games remaining.
The win at the New Lawn was celebrated with big smiles and a very tangible feeling of happiness. That feeling is one that the Manager says can help inspire Salford in their pursuit of the play-offs.
“The reaction at the end of the game was fantastic, the energy that the players put into the game they got their rewards for the efforts and it was certainly a happy dressing room and a happy journey home for sure.
“I think it’s continued into the week, when we come in on the back of the win it’s always a nice place to be a football training ground and they’ve carried that on in the training that we’ve done this week, and we’re now really looking forward to the game on Saturday against Stevenage.”
Watch the full interview with the manager exclusively on Matchday LIVE from 14:30 BST tomorrow on YouTube, Facebook or Twitter.
Salford have no fresh injury concerns ahead of then weekend. Bruno Andrade and James Wilson remain unavailable as they work to shake off knocks, and Darron Gibson is still working on a return to full fitness.
Reprieved from relegation in 2019-20, Stevenage had a difficult start to the season having prepared for the National League. However new faces in January have helped Alex Revell to turn the season around, and not only are they well clear of relegation but The Boro are enjoying a 12-game unbeaten run.
The Hertfordshire side arrive at The Peninsula Stadium two points behind Salford, having played two games more, as they eye a strong finish to the season.
“It’s going to be another challenge they’re on a good run, 12 unbeaten now, I think Alex has done a great job there in his first job.
“It’s about us, how we go about the game, how we approach it and it’s about trying to back up last week’s performance again and last week’s result. The players have been really good this week and I’m really looking forward to it.”
Ammies will have fond memories of Stevenage from our debut in the EFL when a Mani Dieseruvwe brace earned a 2-0 win, and in the two games since Salford have edged both 0-1 at The Lamex Stadium. This is a very different Stevenage side to before though and Salford will have to be wary of a very good contest.
