Stevenage will be without Greg Tansey and Robin Shroot.

Tansey has undergone an operation on a niggling groin problem and fellow midfielder Shroot is still missing with an ankle injury.

Lee Hills could return at left-back after a spell out with a hamstring problem but centre-half Jon Ashton remains sidelined by an Achilles injury.

Fit-again Portuguese forward Filipe Morais impressed in the goalless draw at Portsmouth last Saturday on his first start in two months following an ankle injury, and he is set to keep his place.

Marcus Haber is pushing for a recall in attack while rookie defender Alex Smith will be hoping to make his debut following his recent loan switch from Fulham.

Yeovil's League One promotion aspirations have received a timely boost with skipper Jamie McAllister in contention.

The Glovers are five points off the automatic promotion places and they will have their captain available for their remaining four games, although he will not be rushed straight back into the starting XI.

McAllister has not featured since the defeat to Swindon last month as he recovered from a foot injury and served a two-match suspension.

Midfielder Dominic Blizzard is also set for a return after overcoming the hamstring problem that saw him sidelined for three games.

And Gary Johnson has received a further boost with on-loan forward Jordan Cook returning to the club after receiving treatment on a knee injury at parent club Charlton.

Yeovil have lost one of their last eight games and need six points from their remaining games to mathematically secure a play-off spot.
