The big team news this week is that Ben Kennedy is back in training, although a return to the team is still some time away.
Connor Ogilvie will be out for the second game running with a hamstring injury and Gorman (back), McAllister (knee) and Marriott (knee) are all definitely out.
The gaffer alluded to a few knocks within the squad although he wouldn’t specify who they were, so eyes peeled at 2pm tomorrow when the team sheets are released!

The story so far…
Cambridge have started the season in a similarly inconsistent manner to Stevenage with the U’s just one point ahead of Boro in the table.
After a good start to their league campaign (two wins and a draw in their first three league games), results have started to tail off as Cambridge will be in search of their first win in six games on Saturday.
A positive slant on their recent form is that they are unbeaten in two (two draws) against Hartlepool and top-of-the-league, Leyton Orient.
Head to Head:
Boro have a superior head-to-head record with our Cambridgeshire rivals, eight wins to five with three draws between the two clubs over the years.
Infact, we are unbeaten against Cambridge in our last four meetings – their most recent victory being *that* Conference Play-Off game in 2009.
Our last meeting:
