Football - Smith Boro boost but Hartley banned

Jimmy Smith returns to the Stevenage squad after suspension for the visit of Shrewsbury but Peter Hartley is now banned.

PA Sport Report

Midfielder Smith missed Tuesday's defeat by Gillingham after he was sent off at Peterborough on Saturday.

He will take Hartley's place in the squad after the defender collected a fifth yellow card in midweek.

Striker Darius Charles is not expected back until the new year with the ankle ligament damage which has sidelined him since August and centre-half Ben Chorely is still building up his fitness after groin and thigh problems.
