Stevenage manager Gary Smith is expected to field the same starting line-up for a fifth successive game as his side bid to clinch a play-off spot.

Smith has no new injury or suspension worries following last weekend's 2-2 draw at Sheffield United, which ensured Stevenage enter the final day with their destiny in their own hands.

Smith's side, who have been beaten only once in their last 15 league matches, will see off the challenge of Notts County and Carlisle and secure a top-six finish if they win on Saturday.

Smith, who has had the luxury of retaining the same side that won 6-0 at Yeovil two weeks ago, is expected to start with the midfield pair Stacy Long and John Mousinho, with striker Chris Bearsdley on the substitutes' bench again.

Bury will be without striker Andy Bishop.

The Shakers' top scorer went under the knife to have pieces of floating bone removed from his knee and is now set to start his rehabilitation ahead of the summer's pre-season programme.

Boss Richie Barker told Shakers Player: "Bearing in mind I have seen what they have taken out of his knee, I am amazed that he has carried on like he has.

"We expected a little slither of bone that had worn away, but it turns out that they were two big chunks of bone about the size of a one pence piece."

Elsewhere, Barker has no other injury worries, while Andrai Jones returns from suspension as Bury look to extend their four-match unbeaten run.
