                                                    Pat poised for Boro bow Stevenage could hand a debut to Patrick Agyemang when Chesterfield visit Broadhall Way.

                                                    The striker joined Boro on loan for the rest of the season from QPR on Thursday and is expected to go straight into Gary Smith's squad.

                                                    Fellow loanee Jordan Slew, who made his debut in last week's draw at Exeter, is available after missing the midweek FA Cup defeat to Tottenham because he was cup-tied.

                                                    Top scorer Chris Beardsley returned from a hamstring injury at White Hart Lane and is competing for a starting spot along with Agyemang, Slew, Darius Charles and Craig Reid.

                                                    Manager Smith has no other selection problems and is looking to get Boro's play-off push back on track following a run of four league games without a win which has seen them drop to eighth.

                                                    Jack Lester is likely to return to spearhead Chesterfield's attack after he was rested at Preston on Tuesday night.

                                                    Centre-half Simon Ford will also be back after being rested as the club continue to manage his knee problem.

                                                    On-loan defender James Hurst is close to coming back into the reckoning after missing the last six matches with an ankle injury.

                                                    Manager John Sheridan is trying to sign a replacement midfielder for David Davis, who has been recalled from his loan spell by parent club Wolves.

                                                    Dean Morgan will not be involved as the forward has joined League Two club Oxford on a one-month loan deal.

                                                    Quickfire Boro peg back Blues Craig Reid rescued Stevenage as their play-off challenge stuttered after being held to a surprise 2-2 draw against relegation-threatened Chesterfield.

                                                    Boro's gutsy showing against Tottenham at White Hart Lane in the FA Cup was a distant memory within 22 minutes as the visitors took complete control. With 12 minutes on the clock, Neil Trotman rose highest to meet Drew Talbot's cross and bury a header off the underside of the crossbar. And just 10 minutes later it was 2-0 as Jordan Bowery profited from a mix-up at the back to bend a sumptuous effort inside the far post beyond the despairing dive of goalkeeper Chris Day.

                                                    It could easily have got worse for Stevenage. Craig Westcarr raced clear down the left but his drive flashed across the face of goal. For Boro, Jon Ashton's near-post flick from Joel Byrom's corner was a close as they came to reducing their arrears in the first half.

                                                    After the interval, it was Byrom who twice went close to dragging Stevenage back into the game - stabbing wide from inside the box before seeing a long-range strike fizz past the post. And it was Byrom again who forced Chesterfield keeper Tommy Lee to get down smartly, tipping his first-time effort wide.
