Ronnie Henry to miss at least two more games of the new season

Ronnie Henry is set for a spell on the sidelines after being diagnosed with the mumps.

The Stevenage defender, who has been out of action for a couple of weeks due to a calf strain, is likely to be out of action for another week.

He will miss tonight’s Capital One Cup clash with Ipswich Town as well as Saturday’s visit to Newport County.

Mumps was in the news earlier this week when Barcelona star Neymar contracted the illness and is likely to miss a fortnight through injury.
