Skipper out for Silkmen
Macclesfield boss Gary Simpson will be without captain Paul Morgan when Stevenage visit Moss Rose.
The defender fell awkwardly on his right arm during Tuesday`s victory at Morecambe and is set to miss the rest of the season.
Physio Nick Reid said: "Unfortunately he has suffered a break and will need an operation on the arm, and a new plate putting in.
"He'll almost certainly be out for the rest of the season now which is a real blow."
Sam Wedgbury (hip) and Paul Bolland (hamstring) picked up injuries during last week`s 3-3 draw at home to Torquay and missed the midweek win at Morecambe.
The pair will remain sidelined but Carl Tremarco, Vinny Mukendi, Lewis Chalmers, Simon Yeo and Shaun Brisley are all fit after recent injuries.
Stevenage boss Graham Westley will wait on the fitness of defender Scott Laird before naming his squad.
The 22-year-old left-back suffered an Achilles injury 20 minutes into the second half of Tuesday night's 2-0 win at Burton and had to be replaced by midfielder Robert Sinclair.
However, the Boro boss is hopeful Laird will be fit enough to retain his place in the starting line-up.
Westley has no other injury or suspension problems and is unlikely to make too many changes to his line-up following a run of four consecutive league wins - the first time the club has ever achieved such a feat.
Midfielder Darren Murphy is pushing for his second start since returning from a broken leg after stepping off the bench in midweek to win the penalty for John Mousinho's second goal.
Boro too good for Macc
Stevenage dismantled tired Macclesfield with a polished away performance in a 4-0 win to underline their promotion credentials.
Boro moved into fourth place courtesy of two goals in either half as Macclesfield barely had an attack of any note all game.
Mark Roberts opened the scoring in the 29th minute when he was first to react after Macc goalkeeper Jose Veiga could only parry a low cross from Darius Charles.
Stevenage added a second goal five minutes later when Veiga juggled a deflection from Mat Brown underneath his crossbar, allowing Rob Sinclair to come through with a brave header while the ball was out of his control.
Stevenage went further ahead two minutes after the break when Jon Ashton headed on a free-kick from John Mousinho for Roberts to head home his second at the far post.
Macclesfield had an appeal for a penalty waved away when Brown appeared to be wrestled to the ground by Roberts, but Charles then waltzed through midfield and defence on a 50-yard run and when his shot was tipped away by Veiga, Sinclair fired home the rebound from eight yards for his second goal.
