Stevenage boss Graham Westley is without John Mousinho and Luke Foster for the League Two play-off semi-final first leg against Accrington at Broadhall Way.
Midfielder Mousinho and defender Foster were shown straight red cards in the 2-0 defeat by Northampton and were handed three and four-match bans respectively.
They served the first instalment of their suspensions during the 3-3 draw at home to Bury last weekend.
Midfielder Peter Winn is available after a three-game ban but striker Ben May will be assessed after lasting just 25 minutes as a goalscoring substitute before being forced off through injury against the Shakers.
Lawrie Wilson, another midfielder, will also be monitored as he bids to shake off a knock.
Accrington boss John Coleman is boosted by the return of midfielder Ian Craney.
The 28-year-old has missed Stanley`s last two games with a hamstring injury but returned to training at the end of last week and looks certain to be passed fit.
Charlie Barnett could make way for Craney`s return as Coleman welcomes back a host of players.
The Reds boss made nine changes for their final game of the regular season at Burton as he rested a number of key figures.
Stanley should have a full-strength squad following Craney`s return to full fitness.
Coleman said: "It's going to be a tough game. We expected a tough game whoever we were going to play."
