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

The nine-men of Stevenage, with both Jamie McCombe and Michael Tonge sent off, were thrashed five-one by Oxford, who moved up to second.

Ryan Taylor (13) had Oxford ahead with Chris Whelpdale (17) soon equalising from 30-yards with Boro ‘keeper Jesse Joronen then saving a Liam Sercombe penalty.

A Sercombe (27) penalty was scored with McCombe sent off. Alex MacDonald (66) made it three with Tonge then sent off before Taylor (72) and Kemar Roofe (75) rounded off the rout, with Stevenage still staying in 20th.

These were the match highlights.

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Carlisle, Notts County and, sadly, Oxford.

At two-down Carlisle looked to set to lose to Yeovil but a fightback saw the Cumbrians secure a three-two win over the Glovers, which the win itself probably isn’t a surprise but the comeback makes it an impressive one!

Notts County were also trailing at one point with them coming from behind to beat Portsmouth, who were unbeaten on their travels before this, two-one at Meadow Lane.

Who was the Boro Man of the Match, if possible after a thrashing like this, in this game? That’s what the latest poll is asking so do cast a vote.

Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most?
