Winger has not played for Stevenage since the opening match of the season

Lucas Akins is likely to be out for a further two months following surgery on his ankle last week.

The winger, who has not featured for the club since the opening day of the season, has been suffering from a ‘bony growth which has been causing him pain with ball striking,’ according to club physio Paul Dando.

Stevenage will also be without the services of Darius Charles for some time after the striker suffered an ankle ligament injury against Everton last week.

The frontman was substituted in the Capital One Cup encounter, and was on crutches at the Lamex Stadium on Saturday watching Boro take on Bradford City.
