Stevenage are unlikely to make changes to their starting XI.

Boro boss Gary Smith was delighted with his side's performance in Tuesday's 2-1 win over Portsmouth - which closed the gap on League One leaders Tranmere to just one point - and barring any late injury scares is expected to name the same team for the third match in a row.

Anthony Grant returned from a one-game suspension against Pompey but had to settle for a place on the bench, and he is again expected to be named as one of the substitutes against Paolo Di Canio's Robins.

Striker Patrick Agyemang is building up his fitness following a thigh injury, and could also come into contention for a place among the substitutes, but Jon Ashton remains sidelined with an Achilles problem that has ruled him out of the club's last five fixtures.

Lee Hills (thigh) and Don Cowan (hamstring) are also unavailable.

Andy Iro is still waiting for his debut. The former Columbus Crew and Toronto defender, 27, signed in September but needed to build up his fitness. He has been an unused substitute in the last two matches.

Swindon will welcome Aden Flint back into the squad looking to record their first League One win in four games.

The 23-year-old centre-back missed Tuesday's defeat at Crewe after a red card at Scunthorpe but fellow defender Nathan Thompson remains on the sidelines with a knock picked up in the same match.

Striker Paul Benson is available for selection for the trip to second-placed Boro, who currently have Swindon's Oliver Risser on loan.

Alan Navarro and Andy Williams are both continuing their rehabilitation from injury in the UK having returned from treatment in Italy while midfielder Luke Rooney will return to the County Ground from his month-long loan spell at Burton after Saturday's game.
