A sold-out crowd will descend on the Lamex Stadium for the top of the table League Two clash between Stevenage and Leyton Orient - and Boro boss Steve Evans is licking his lips in anticipation.

Just under 7,000 will be in attendance, the biggest crowd for a Football League game at Broadhall Way.

And yet despite that, the wily Evans, who has had a long and illustrious career, has seen it all before.

And he is hoping the occasion matches the anticipation.

He said: "It doesn’t bring any pressure to me, 48,000 at Elland Road didn’t bring me pressure.

"But it is a testament to the job the players have done.

"We are having crowds much bigger than when we first came in and that’s credit to firstly the players, for their performances to get us second, and secondly the supporters. 

"I’ve never hidden it, if I’d been watching for the last four years, I’d have shut the curtains if they were at the bottom of the garden.

"The curtains are very much open now and it’s just the support in and around the town. 

"Even before Aston Villa, the support has been growing remarkably every week. 

"There will be a big travelling support, Leyton Orient fans always get behind their team, and there will be a great atmosphere."
