Eger: Boost for Bees
Team news ahead of Saturday's League One clash between Stevenage and Brentford at Broadhall Way.
Stevenage have no new problems ahead of the crucial home fixture.
Manager Gary Smith named an unchanged side as Boro saw off another top-six rival at the Lamex Stadium on Tuesday night, beating Carlisle 1-0.
A third game in the space of eight days, especially given the importance of Saturday's match, might be a stretch too far for the same players so changes are probable.
Changes in defence are unlikely after successive clean sheets. Ronnie Henry will hope to win back his place at right-back from on-loan Nottingham Forest defender Jamaal Lascelles though, after losing the shirt through illness.
Midweek matchwinner John Mousinho, fellow midfielders Jennison Myrie-Williams and Robin Shroot and on-loan striker Jordan Slew are options for Smith.
Seventh-placed Boro go into the weekend a point behind Notts County, who currently occupy the final play-off spot. However, Notts kick-off at home to Bury on Saturday at 12.30pm.
Marcel Eger could return to the Brentford squad for the trip.
The German defender has been out since January with an ankle problem but got an hour for the reserves under his belt this week.
However, the form of centre-halves Harlee Dean and Karleigh Osborne during Brentford's seven-game unbeaten run means a spot on the bench is the best Eger can hope for.
The Bees have no new injury worries but are still without skipper Kevin O'Connor due to a foot problem, fellow midfielder Adam Forshaw, who had to go back to parent club Everton after suffering a broken jaw, and winger Myles Weston with an ankle knock.
Dutch defender Pim Balkestein is available despite a broken toe.
