Stevenage Target Harvey

Stevenage are to target ex-Bull Jimmy Harvey as their next boss with Peter Taylor expected to resign in the morning, according to the Non-League Paper.

Taylor will accept the blame for Stevenage's failed promotion campaign after earning only one win in their final four matches to finish two points short of the play-offs. Harvey, on the other hand, guided Forest Green to their highest Conference place just two places short of their big spending rivals.

Taylor's dismal tactics and unattractive football has seen gates fall despite the constant promotion challenge throughout the season, with constant fan gripes about the quality of football. Harvey, and Torquay chief Paul Buckle, have been named as targets with more attractive football the aim.

Buckle would be unlikely to move from the Gulls for another Conference side, especially with a play-off campaign on the horizon, while Harvey faces a rebuilding job with several of his out of contract start likely to be poached in the summer. Both Anthony Tonkin and ex-Bull Stuart Fleetwood have already expressed their intentions to move on, and several others have been targeted by wealthier clubs.
