Town Boss Dave Flitcroft wants his team to be focussed on their strengths when they take on Stevenage at The County Ground this after

The Reds are back at home today and they will be looking to return to winning ways following their defeat to Notts County in midweek.

"They've got a very aggressive front-two, very good movement and they will try to play out and play through the team," Flitcroft said.

"They will look to get the two boys in who just work incredibly hard to create opportunites.

"They keep a solidity as well and they've had a good start. They are getting led very well and we are aware of their strengths and we'll make sure that our strengths are right."

Flitcroft also revealed that there has been plenty of hard work put in on the training ground as Town look to get off the mark at home this afternoon.

"It is making sure that me as manager and as leader of the football club comes up with a solution for the home form.

"The players are desperate to win for the home fans.

"They've seen what winning away from home means to the travelling fans and the connection they've got with the travelling support.

"The two games we've lost at home we've gone chasing those games and have opened ourselves up.

"We're working towards a solution and we will find that solution a million percent and we are desperate to.

"We are working hard on it and it won't just happen overnight. I look to make changes over a period of time. 

"Notts County was a fantastic place to go but it isn't anymore. They've halved the size of the changing room down to a corridor now and we had our meeting in the team shower.

"It isn't a great place for an away team to go and it has given me food for thought. 

"People will raise their game against Swindon Town and we've got to make sure we are very difficult to beat and, if we do get beat at home, then they are going to have to earn it and work very hard to beat us at home."
