Laird back for Lincoln clash

18 March 2011 02:30
Stevenage boss Graham Westley will welcome defender Scott Laird back into his squad for the home clash with Lincoln. The 22-year-old left-back missed the 2-1 midweek win over Oxford as he served a one-match ban for being sent off at Wycombe, but he is likely to go straight back into the starting line-up against the Imps. Centre-back Jon Ashton could also return following a leg injury which forced him out of the wins over Wycombe last weekend and Oxford in midweek. Midfielder Joel Byrom and striker Taiwo Atieno could also come into contention for a return to the squad after returning to training this week. Midfielder David Bridges and striker Chris Beardsley are both pushing for starts following their cameo appearances against the Us in midweek. Boro will be hoping to secure their fifth win in six league games.
