Boro boss Graham Westley was delighted with Lee Boylan's quicker than expected return from an ankle injury against Burton Albion on Saturday.
Boylan was expected to face a lengthy period on the sidelines after being stretchered off against Barrow last month but an MRI scan showed there had just been soft tissue damage.
Westley believes the 30-year-old's return should allow Steve Morison to continue his rich vein of goalscoring form.
"Lee is getting a bit of stick from the lads having gone off on the stretcher," revealed the Boro boss. "We're all delighted for him though - it could have been so much worse.

"He must have got hit on the nerve at the time with the pain that he was feeling but he has come back in and put on a good show.
"He is always bright and lively and of course Morison benefits from having him up there because sides know they are defending the names Morison, Boylan and (Mitchell) Cole - they are all goal-getters.

"That allows Steve Morison a lot more freedom because the opposition has then got more than one player to focus on."
Yesterday's transfer deadline passed without incident as far as Boro were concerned with many Stevenage fans breathing a sigh of relief that Morison remained at The Lamex Stadium.
Morison admitted last month that he would jump at the chance of a move to Millwall but the League One club never followed up their enquiry with a firm bid.
