Murphy doubt for Boro

13 August 2010 11:01
Darren Murphy is an injury doubt for Stevenage`s trip to Bradford. Midfielder Murphy was forced off at half-time in Monday's Carling Cup defeat to Portsmouth after injuring his shoulder. The seriousness of the injury is not yet known, but Stacy Long is likely to step in should Murphy not recover in time. David Bridges serves the final instalment of his three-match suspension after he was sent off in last season's FA Trophy final against Barrow. Jon Ashton is expected to miss out, although the powerful defender is now back in training following hip surgery and will hope to return to action in the next few weeks. Manager Graham Westley is expected to tinker with his starting XI once again, with forward Peter Vincenti among those hoping to gain a recall.
