The fall-out from Stevenage's draw at Northampton continues with Boro set to be missing some key players for the visit of Colchester United on Good Friday.

Boro played arguably their best football of the season in the second half of the 1-1 draw at Sixfields but it came at a cost.

Both clubs were told on Wednesday that they are facing an FA charge after they "failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion" following a "mass confrontation" in the 90th minute.

That came after a foul on Alex Gilbey and there was still time for Carl Piergianni to end bloodied following a nasty bang to the nose.

And while Steve Evans would not be pushed on who would be missing from the first of the Easter games, he was expecting there to be some.

The Boro boss said: "We've had a couple of dramas that's carried on from Saturday, a couple of players that that won't be fit for the weekend, 

"We're going to keep them to ourselves, certainly until [Colchester on Good Friday]. 

"We’ll make the final prognosis today, but looks like we'll be with a couple of big players."
