Options for Smith
Stevenage have no new injury worries for the visit of Premier League Southampton in the Capital One Cup.
Defender Lee Hills is still building up his fitness after his summer move from Crystal Palace but boss Gary Smith has no other injury absentees. USA winger Robbie Rogers made his debut as a substitute in Saturday's 1-0 win at Oldham after joining from Leeds and could be involved again. Lucas Akins has scored twice in two starts, including the winner at the weekend, since his summer switch from Tranmere and he should keep his place in attack. Greg Tansey, Robin Shroot, Michael Thalassitis and Bondz N'Gala will push for recalls if Smith opts to rotate his squad.
