Football - Arnold banned for Boro

Stevenage are without the suspended Steven Arnold for the short trip to Brentford.

The goalkeeper was dismissed against Carlisle after just 12 minutes for bringing down Rory Loy in the area and will now serve a one-match ban.

Veteran keeper Chris Day was called from the bench at Brunton Park and is expected to deputise from the start against Uwe Rosler's side as Boro look to stop their slide down the table.

Gary Smith's side were third three months ago but now find themselves 14th after a run of eight defeats in 13 games.

But Boro do enjoy a relatively empty treatment room, with defender Jon Ashton's long-term Achilles problem the only major injury at the club.

It means Smith has the likes of Sam Hoskins, Greg Tansey, Lucas Akins and Robin Shroot as options if he wants to make changes.
