Last time we met:
Boro have a good recent record against the Magpies having won in each of their last three meetings and Stevenage got all 3 points the last time the two sides met. James Dunne’s last minute goal made for a memorable finale as Boro won their first game of the season at Meadow Lane. After a tight 90 minutes, Stevenage broke forward with Shroot and the attacker picked out Dunne who made it 1-0 with seconds to go.
Ben Chorley is Boro's only suspension, whilst Dean Parrett is out after injuring his knee during the loss to Oldham.
Notts County have just extended the loan deal of Jack Grealish and the club will be working hard throughout the day to do the same for Callum McGregor. Injury-wise, Notts County have last season's player of the season, Ian Liddle out with ankle ligament damage, whilst Mustapha Dumbuya has a groin problem.

It’s not been a campaign to remember so far for the Magpies, although a renewed sense of optimism has been installed around the club. Three wins out of their last six games, including two wins in a row certainly show an upturn in form. A 4-0 win away at Colchester and a 3-0 win at home to Bradford were particularly impressive victories within the last month or so.
Although his future in doubt, Callum McGregor has been an absolute revelation since joining the Magpies on loan from Celtic. He joined the club having not played a single minute of professional, first team football but has taken like a duck to water. McGregor has been a big part of County's recent resurrection, he's also their top scorer on 12 goals. At only 20 years of age, McGregor could have a big future in the game and County have certainly benefited from his talents. Although his loan period has just ended, County will still be hoping to extend his stay for the rest of the season.
