Stevenage’s League 2 season continued with another defeat against Mansfield at Broadhall Way on Tuesday.

Defeat was suffered by Stevenage again with Mansfield going away from Broadhall Way with the points after a two-nil, Boro remain outside of the drop zone in 20th but are now only two-points from dropping into the bottom two after a third successive defeat.

Second half goals from Ryan Tafazolli (47) and Jack Thomas (51) had Mansfield in control a little over five-minutes into the second period with them enough to secure the points for the Stags.

The other results this midweek were as follows:-

Tue 29th September 2015
Accrington 2-1 Yeovil
Wimbledon 1-1 Northampton
Dag & Red 1-1 Notts County
Hartlepool 0-3 Bristol Rovers
Leyton Orient 1-2 Carlisle
Morecambe 1-3 Luton
Newport 0-3 Crawley
Plymouth 2-1 Barnet
Portsmouth 1-2 Exeter
Stevenage 0-2 Mansfield
Wycombe 1-0 Cambridge
York 1-2 Oxford Utd

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Carlisle, Crawley and Exeter.

A defeat followed Carlisle’s return to league action, with a hangover from the League Cup battle with Liverpool, saw defeat suffered by the Blues definitely recovered with an impressive two-one win at Leyton Orient!

Crawley’s win over Newport ended a run of successive defeats, and heavy defeats at that, with a comfortable three-nil win at Rodney Parade to leave the Exiles rooted to the foot of the table and move the Reds out of the bottom two.

Portsmouth lost for a first time in the league, and also lost top spot too, when Exeter beat them two-one at Fratton Park, which also ended the Grecians run of defeats!
