                                                    Boro injury problems piling up Stevenage's injury problems continue to mount ahead of the visit of Bournemouth.

                                                    Don Cowan faces around six months out after undergoing ankle surgery on Friday while fellow striker Chris Beardsley will be absent for four to six weeks with a torn hamstring.

                                                    Midfielder John Mousinho is still working his way back to full fitness after missing the last four months with a broken bone in his foot.

                                                    Winger Luke Freeman was eased back into action against Walsall on Saturday after his badly bruised foot and on-loan defender Jamaal Lascelles could be available following a tight hamstring.

                                                    However, on-loan striker Jordan Slew will serve the second game of a three-match suspension.

                                                    Bournemouth are sweating over the fitness of striker Matt Tubbs as they prepare for their first match following the dismissal of manager Lee Bradbury.

                                                    Bradbury left Dean Court on Sunday with the Cherries lying 13th in npower League One, with Paul Groves taking temporary charge, and the caretaker boss may well have to do without his star forward at Boro.

                                                    Tubbs has missed Bournemouth's last three matches because of a groin strain, and the same injury could keep the striker out of the trip to Broadhall Way.

                                                    On-loan frontman Zavon Hines made his debut in the defeat to Oldham on Saturday and is set to fill in once again up front, while winger Donal McDermott and forward Wes Thomas could both return after minor knocks.

                                                    Full-back Charlie Daniels has been ruled out for up to three weeks with a hairline fracture in his foot and defender Stephen Purches (double leg break) is definitely out.

                                                    Boro reel in Cherries to deny Groves Luke Freeman and Michael Bostwick completed a first-half comeback for Stevenage as they kept their play-off hopes alive with a 2-2 draw against Bournemouth Boro looked as if they would fall behind in the play-off race after 18 minutes when Wes Thomas drove home for the Cherries and then Scott Malone followed suit.

                                                    However, Boro made up for their poor start in the seven minutes prior to half-time as first Freeman rifled in from range and then Bostwick levelled with a superb half-volley.

                                                    Bournemouth, who parted company with boss Lee Bradbury on Sunday, got off to a perfect start under caretaker manager Paul Groves as Thomas picked up from Harry Arter and slotted home.

                                                    Stevenage struggled to get a grip on the game and 18 minutes later full-back Malone doubled the Cherries' advantage with an effort from all of 25 yards.

                                                    But their two-goal cushion lasted just seconds as Freeman rifled a fierce long-range drive high into Darryl Flahavan's goal before Bostwick beat the `keeper with a brilliant half-volley.
