Stevenage set to be without skipper

07 March 2011 01:00
Stevenage boss Graham Westley will be without captain Mark Roberts for the home clash against Hereford. The 27-year-old defender was dismissed in Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Torquay for denying Gulls striker Chris Zebroski a clear goalscoring opportunity and will serve a one-match ban. Luke Foster and Darius Charles will now battle it out to replace the centre-back in the starting line-up. Westley could also be tempted to make further changes following his side's first defeat in five games against the Gulls, with striker Craig Reid and top-scorer Byron Harrison pushing for starts along with midfielders Stacy Long and Robert Sinclair. Midfielder Darren Murphy, who has made one appearance this season due to a dislocated shoulder and broken leg, could return to the squad.
