RESERVES RECEIVE TROPHY

Our reserves will be presented with their championship trophy tonight - but coach Clive Allen hasn't taken his eye off the job in hand.

Our reserves will be presented with their championship trophy tonight - but coach Clive Allen hasn't taken his eye off the job in hand.

The lads will receive the Barclays Premier Reserve League South trophy after our final home match of the season against Coventry City at Stevenage Borough FC. Kick-off at Broadhall Way is 7pm.

Development coach Clive said: "It will be a fantastic experience for the young lads, there is a big group who have all played their part and deserve that recognition.

"It will also be great for the regular fans at Stevenage to see us presented with the trophy, we're all pleased about that.

"At the same time, we also want to get the job done and get the right result."

A superb run of 14 wins in 15 games secured the title and coach Clive is determined to return to winning ways after a 1-1 draw at Palace last week.

Coventry provide the opposition for the final two games, at home tonight and away on April 25.

He added: "After the fantastic run of results we've had it was a little disappointing not to win the game at Palace but we're unbeaten in six games, one defeat in 16 and we want to stay that way until the end of the season.

"Coventry have had a fine run of results and that points to two tough games to finish the season.

"We know we are in for two difficult games and I'm pleased about that before we go into the play-off final."

That play-off final will be a one-off game against the winners of the Barclays Reserve League North - Manchester United are currently six points clear of Villa although Villa have two games in hand. Middlesbrough are a further two pints adrift.

Tonight's squad: Forecast, Lewis, Mills, Bunjevcevic, Martin, Marney, Ghaly, Huddlestone, Jackson, Barnard, Barcham, Maghoma, Davis, McKie, Burch, Hamed.

There will be a re-presentation and parade of the trophy during half-time of our Easter Monday clash against Manchester United at the Lane.
