Stevenage boss Gary Smith could make changes for the visit of the Magpies.

Boro slipped to a fifth defeat in six matches when they went down 1-0 at home to Leyton Orient on Saturday.

They are still without defender Jon Ashton, who has undergone surgery on his Achilles, while striker Patrick Agyemang has been carrying a hamstring injury.

But Smith has plenty of options, with seven-goal midfielder Robin Shroot back on the bench at the weekend following a spell out.

Spanish forward Dani Lopez came on as a substitute for his first appearance since returning from a loan spell at Aldershot where he scored six goals in 11 games, so he is also pushing for a place in the starting line-up.

It will be an unchanged Notts County squad that travels to Stevenage for Chris Kiwomya's first game in charge.

Kiwomya has temporarily been handed the reins at the Meadow Lane club after Keith Curle was sacked on Sunday.

Kiwomya, development squad manager under Curle, has the same players available that lost 2-1 at bottom-of-the-table Hartlepool two days ago.

Should he wish to make changes to the starting XI, defenders Julian Kelly and Manny Smith, midfielders Gavin Mahon and Hamza Bencherif and strikers Enoch Showunmi and Romello Nangel are those pushing to be promoted from the bench.

Goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski is still out with the head injury he suffered during the defeat at Leyton Orient and captain Neal Bishop will serve the second game of a three-match ban.
