Football - Duo blow for Boro

Stevenage will be without Lucas Akins and Darius Charles when they travel to Tranmere.

PA Sport Report

Winger Akins is expected to be sidelined for another couple of months with the ankle injury he suffered at the start of the season.

Defender-turned-striker Charles also missed last weekend's 1-1 draw against Bradford with an ankle ligament injury and he too could be out for a while yet.

Defenders Lee Hills (hamstring) and Ben Chorley (groin) are close to returning to action but are not expected to be risked by manager Graham Westley, who could name an unchanged squad.
