Harry Anderson may be involved in Stevenage's home game with Derby County - despite being in a car crash earlier in the week.

The winger has struggled for fitness since arriving for Bristol Rovers in the summer but was starting to make progress before the accident earlier in the week.

However, manager Steve Evans has said thankfully he wasn't badly injured.

"In many respects, we’re lucky to have Harry here today," said the Boro boss. 

"He went home earlier in the week and was involved in a shunt from behind from a van so the kid was in hospital and A&E and had scans and all sorts. 

"The good thing is he seems to have come through that with nothing more than being battered and bruised and he was training. 

"He’s had two weeks of pre-season training in the last two weeks so we're hopeful. 

"I've seen him in the building and he's walked in with an Anderson smile so I think he's good to train [on Thursday] which is good."

Dan Sweeney is still "a couple of weeks away" from full fitness and Evans is also sweating over the condition of Jake Forster-Caskey and Terence Vancooten, both of whom limped out of the second half at Bristol Rovers on Tuesday.

The manager said: "We'll see if we can get both on the training ground [on Friday], obviously both come off with issues. 

"It's never good for us. We're limited in number and we were very close at Bristol to having nobody else available who could have stripped. 

"But we'll see how Jake and Terence are later. They're in the building now, so I'll get a report from them and from the medical department after they've been in the gym."
