Stevenage boss Darren Sarll has provided an injury update ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two game against Crewe Alexandra.

Sarll confirmed that Ben Kennedy should be available for the game at the Lamex but the fitness of fellow attacker Matt Godden is unclear.

“Ben Kennedy hasn’t trained but should be okay,” said Sarll.

“Matt Godden hasn’t trained and he is 50/50.

“Ronnie Henry hasn’t trained and is doubtful.

“Jack King hasn’t trained because he has some swelling on his knee, he’s doubtful, maybe 50/50.

“Dean Bowditch isn’t really training and is doubtful.

“It’s just day on day at the moment. We had a little bit of illness early on in the week but that seems to be subsiding.

“We are pretty much how we were at Notts County in terms of selection for Saturday.”

The Boro boss had been hoping that last weekend’s postponed game against Mansfield Town would give some of his injured players a chance to return, but this has not been the case.

Sarll told CometSport: “At the time I thought the postponement might allow us to recover a few that were injured but things haven’t progressed like that.

“We are nowhere further on with that little list from the weekend. It is what it is.”
