Stevenage’s League 2 season continued with a defeat against Cambridge at the Abbey Stadium on Saturday.

A second successive defeat was suffered by Stevenage with Dunk (90) heading home a winner in injury time to give Cambridge a one-nil win.

Lee had hit the crossbar early on for Stevenage with this defeat seeing Boro slip to 20th.

The other results this weekend were as follows:-

Saturday 26th September 2015
Barnet 3-1 Dag & Red
Bristol Rovers 1-2 Portsmouth
Cambridge 1-0 Stevenage
Carlisle 0-1 Newport
Crawley 0-3 Accrington
Exeter 0-2 Wycombe
Luton 2-0 Wimbledon
Mansfield 0-0 Plymouth
Northampton 1-1 Leyton Orient
Notts County 1-0 York
Oxford Utd 0-0 Morecambe
Yeovil 1-2 Hartlepool

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Barnet, Newport and Notts County.

It might have been a change at the top with Portsmouth winning at Bristol Rovers to take the lead in League 2 but it was wins at the other end of the table that make most difference in many ways!

Barnet, since a defeat at Pompey funnily enough at which time boss Martin Allen insisted wins were coming, extended an unbeaten run to two-matches with both of them won! A three-one win at the Hive against struggling Dagenham wasn’t a surprise in itself but it keeps some momentum going for the Bees.

A midweek four-one thrashing of struggling Crawley, who shipped three-goals again in another defeat, saw Notts County hope grow that finally the season could be up and running? County followed that up with a one-nil win at Meadow Lane against York, maybe this is the case now!

The standout result though has to be Newport’s win at Carlisle? The one-nil win for the Exiles not only saw them win for the first time this season, it wasn’t enough to take them off the foot of the League 2 table though, it also saw Terry Butcher’s side end the Blues’ own unbeaten run and came just a matter of days after they came within a penalty shootout of knocking Liverpool out of the League Cup.

Maybe that game at Anfield took more out of Carlisle, mentally and physically, than thought? Either way Butcher said Newport were improving, they followed up a draw last weekend with a win so he’s right!

Stevenage are back in action this midweek with another League 2 game against Mansfield at Broadhall Way on Tuesday.
