Midfielder Darren Murphy will be available for this weekend's FA Trophy final after having a three-game ban overturned by an FA Disciplinary Committee for his sending off against Cambridge in the play-off semi-final first leg.

The Irishman was dismissed during the first leg for an alleged elbow on Cambridge's Jon Challinor but replays showed the former Cork man had barely touched the player.

Boro's appeal against the decision was upheld and Murphy is now likely to make the starting line-up at Wembley as Graham Westley's side look to bounce back from their play-off disappointment.
