Stevenage to hand fitness tests to Mark McKee and Dean Bowditch

Stevenage pair Mark McKee and Dean Bowditch hope to make Cambridge’s visit in Sky Bet League Two.

The two forwards have picked up knee injuries in the early weeks of Dino Maamria’s managerial reign.

But fellow striker Matty Godden did prove his fitness in Tuesday’s home draw with Mansfield after a recent seven-week absence.

Ben Kennedy will be assessed after missing out against Mansfield.

Cambridge have several fitness concerns ahead of what has becoming an increasingly fierce derby in recent seasons.

Greg Taylor should be available after being injured during the 3-2 defeat to Exeter last weekend, but Liam O’Neil misses out with a thigh injury.

Striker Jabo Ibehre is another absentee and his natural replacement, Uche Ikpeazu, could also be sidelined by a back issue.

Piero Mingoia remains out with a groin complaint which has sidelined him since mid-December.
