Rogers: Could return to Boro squad

Rogers: Could return to Boro squad

Team news for Tuesday night's League One clash between Stevenage and Walsall at Broadhall Way.

Stevenage will check on Robbie Rogers and Filipe Morais.

The attacking midfield duo were not risked in Saturday's 2-2 home draw against Crewe due to minor hamstring problems and could return to the squad.

Midfielder Robin Shroot is pushing for a start after scoring another goal as a substitute at the weekend.

Left-back Lee Hills is still on the sidelines but is closing in on a return.

The summer signing from Crystal Palace has yet to figure this season due to a thigh strain, but is stepping up his training this week and hopes to be available in a fortnight.

Walsall manager Dean Smith is on the verge of having a fully-fit squad to pick from.

Smith will wait on midfielder Adam Chambers, who faces a late fitness test as he looks to make his return from a hamstring injury.

The game looks to have come too soon for Saddlers forward Febian Brandy, who is still nursing a hamstring strain of his own, with Saturday's clash against Preston representing a more realistic target for his return.

Walsall are now unbeaten in five League One matches but face a tough test against a Stevenage side who currently sit third in the table having not lost a game so far this season.
