Stevenage Vs Burton Albion, Sat 16 Oct 2010


Manager Graham Westley has no fresh injury or suspension worries ahead of Stevenage's clash with Burton.

Mark Roberts returned from an ankle complaint during last week's 1-1 draw with Rotherham and will again skipper the side.

However, Borough will be without Joel Byrom due to a fractured eye socket, while Lee Boylan (calf) remains sidelined.

Chris Beardsley (shoulder) and Darren Murphy (ankle) are long-term absentees and will again be unavailable.

Westley will be keen for his side to build on last week's impressive performance by claiming three points against Paul Peschisolido's side.

Stevenage have acclimatised well to life in npower League Two thus far and currently sit in 13th having picked up 14 points from their first 11 games.

John McGrath and Russell Penn are suspended for the trip.

Both midfielders collected their fifth yellow card of the season during the home defeat to Wycombe last weekend and must serve one-match bans.

Their absence is likely to see Adam Bolder make his first league start since suffering a dislocated shoulder at the end of August.

A hamstring problem forced club captain Darren Moore off after just 17 minutes against Wycombe, and the big defender could be given a complete rest in an attempt to resolve his fitness problems.

"Darren has been in and out of the side with various injuries, which is far from ideal," said manager Paul Peschisolido. "He could be fit for the Stevenage game, but I might give him 10 days or so to get himself right."
