Triple worry for Boro
Stevenage have doubts over Filipe Morais, John Mousinho and Lucas Akins for the visit of Crewe.
Winger Morais and midfielder Mousinho both missed Saturday's 1-0 defeat by Peterborough with knocks and forward Akins was forced out of the action at half-time.
Striker Craig Reid came on as a late substitute for his first appearance since rejoining Boro last week so he is pushing for a start.
Fellow new signings Bira Dembele and Curtis Obeng are still awaiting their debuts having been unused subs against Posh.
Crewe's club captain Abdul Osman is set to miss out.
Midfielder Osman felt a problem in his foot at training on Monday and is not expected to travel, with fit-again Ollie Turton (knee) and Liam Nolan held out of an Under-21s game in case they are needed.
Boss Steve Davis has rated on-loan striker Uche Ikpeazu "touch and go" as he continues to battle an ankle problem and a dead leg. The former ailment is also troubling fellow forward Ajay Leitch-Smith.
The two men on the Railwaymen's long-term injury list, Ryan Colclough (stomach) and Max Clayton (ankle), are expected back next month.
