Ben Kennedy is in contention to make his first Stevenage start for two months at home to Newport.
Forward Kennedy has not played since January but came off the bench for the final half hour of last weekend’s 3-1 defeat at Crewe – Stevenage’s eighth successive loss in Sky Bet League Two.
Stevenage are eight points from safety and new manager Alex Revell could be short on numbers.
Diaguely Dabo and Dan Newton missed the Gresty Road defeat through injury, and Jake Cassidy limped off during the first half to put his place in doubt.
Newport defender Ryan Inniss starts a three-match ban for his red card in the 2-0 midweek loss at Carlisle.
That was County’s sixth successive away league defeat and manager Michael Flynn could make changes to try to cure the Exiles’ travel sickness.
Skipper Joss Labadie should make his first start for nearly a month after getting a good run-out at Brunton Park, while Kyle Howkins and Jamille Matt could also return.
Matt Dolan is struggling with a hamstring problem which forced him off at Carlisle, and Mark O’Brien faces another week out with a knee injury picked up at the end of January.
