Stevenage Boro boss Graham Westley has acted in an attempt to stop his side leaking goals.

Chris Day was introduced in goal for Bank Holiday Monday's 1-1 draw against Crawley Town after previous incumbent Ashley Bayes had leaked 13 goals in the first four Blue Square Premier games of the season.

Day, the former QPR stopper, is currently without a club after being released by Millwall following a lengthy injury lay-off.

The 33 year old lives in Stevenage and replaced Bayes following Saturday's 4-0 capitulation at Ebbsfleet United.

The Crawley game also saw a first outing of the season for midfielder Peter Vincenti, rumoured to be on his way out of the club in the summer after Westley was reappointed.

Westley will now have to move quickly to bring in other reinforcements as the transfer window closes this weekend until January.

Boro face the long trip up to league new boys Barrow this Saturday before travelling closer to home to another new team in the Blue Square Premier, Kettering, on Tuesday night.

* Monday's goalscorer Mitchell Cole is the only Boro representative in England C manager Paul Fairclough's 16-man squad for the trip to Sarajevo to take on Bosnia and Herzegovina next month.

This will be played in the Grbavica Stadium in Sarajevo on Tuesday, September 16 (4.30pm kick-off local time).

The match will be against the Bosnian A2 squad (which is in effect their second string team) used as a bridge between their under-21 senior sides.

Although the Bosnians will be an 'open age' side, Fairclough has decided to go with an under-23 squad in preparation for the International Challenge Trophy Group A decider in Italy in November.
