Stevenage will be without Dani Lopez.

The Spanish striker is suspended, and will also miss the first two games of next season, after he was sent off during the first half of the 3-0 defeat at Swindon last weekend.

Greg Tansey is close to fitness after a recent groin operation but may not be risked, while fellow midfielder Robin Shroot is sidelined by an ankle injury.

Defender Jon Ashton is the only other absentee with a long-term Achilles injury.

Full-back David Gray dropped to the bench at Swindon having suffered concussion earlier in the week so he could return, while goalkeeper Steve Arnold will be hoping to win his place back after Chris Day got a run-out.

Karl Robinson is expected to make changes for MK Dons' final game of the season.

The Milton Keynes manager threatened his players with their futures at the club following last weekend's home defeat to relegation-haunted Scunthorpe, which ended the Dons' hopes of gatecrashing the play-offs.

Robinson has hinted that he will include teenage trio Dele Alli, Brendan Galloway and Giorgio Rasulo in his squad at the Lamex Stadium. All three players have broken into the first-team this season.

The Dons boss must decide whether any of them feature from the start against Boro.

Fellow youngster George Baldock, midfielders Chris Lines and Alan Smith and strikers Izale McLeod and Ryan Lowe were on the bench against Scunthorpe and will also be pushing for starting roles.

Goalkeeper David Martin (back) and skipper Dean Lewington (knee) will remain on the sidelines.
