Defeat to Accrington Stanley was a setback at Roots Hall even though Stevenage beating us at the Lamex Stadium on Saturday was arguably less of one the manor of it was. With such a good away record this season we would’ve expected to react, until the final fifteen minutes we looked like we would but a late blitz saw Stevenage through to a four two win.

Stevenage struck first with a whipped cross from Roarie Deacon deceiving everyone as it snuck into the corner at the far post. Barry Corr looked our biggest threat, and the one most likely to bring us level, but we couldn’t get this before the break.

Shortly after it though we did draw level when David Worrall crossed into Joe Pigott and he volleyed home his latest goal of his loan from Charlton Athletic to make it one one. It wasn’t long before we had a penalty when Worrall was brought down by Simon Walton with Corr taking this to put us two one up.

Ben Coker’s foul on Ben Kennedy gave Stevenage a penalty of their own and a chance to draw level, after conceding our penalty Walton stepped up to beat the returning Daniel Bentley to make it two two.

A draw would’ve been taken, and wouldn’t have been a bad result, but Kennedy had other ideas as he ran at our defence before curling home to make it three two to Stevenage with the points secured deep into injury time when Dean Parrett added the fourth.

We’ve had brilliant runs and poor runs, usually one of the other. We’ll be hoping that this is a temporary blip and not the start of another poor one!
