Stevenage Darren Sarll has given an injury update ahead of Boro hosting Mansfield Town at the Lamex on Saturday.

Influential striker Matty Godden was missed during the 2-0 defeat at Meadow Lane against Notts County but the boss is hoping the 26-year-old will be fit to face the Stags.

He said: “Matty had a bad illness during the week and had to spend 24 hours in hospital so his is more illness related now. We wish him well and hope to have him back on Saturday.”

The highly-rated Ben Kennedy was forced out of the game against County despite incurring the ire of home fans who mistakenly thought he was feigning injury. However Sarll defended his man after the match saying: “Ben is struggling. Supporters should be careful when they become judge and jury because Ben is not in a great way.”

Sarll also indicated Ronnie Henry will return after missing the defeat.
