Stevenage could add Andy Iro to their squad.
The 27-year-old defender has joined Boro on a free transfer after leaving MLS side Toronto and will be available once he receives international clearance.
Full-back Darius Charles and winger Filipe Morais are fit after recent knocks so Robbie Rogers is the only injury doubt.
The American winger has missed the last four matches with a hamstring problem and is unlikely to be risked.
Swindon loanee Oliver Risser will hope to keep his place in midfield after scoring on his full debut in the 1-1 draw against Doncaster last weekend.
Gary Smith’s side are unbeaten at home and will kick-off in third spot.
Kevin Blackwell is aiming to secure Bury’s first win of the season when he takes charge of his first match.
The former Leeds and Sheffield United chief was appointed the Shakers new boss on Wednesday following the departure of Richie Barker before the new season.
Bury currently sit bottom of League One and have only collected two points on the road so far this season.
Defender Adam Lockwood is doubtful after being withdrawn during the first half of last weekend’s defeat to MK Dons.
Lockwood picked up a heavy knock and is unlikely to feature meaning Marcus Marshall may have to fill in at the back again.
Midfielder David Worrall returned to the bench in that fixture after recovering from an ankle injury and is expected to return to the starting line-up.
