Preston boss Graham Westley enjoyed a successful return to his former club with a stunning victory over Stevenage.

The Lillywhites took an early lead through Stuart Beavon only for Boro to level nine minutes later when Greg Tansey found the top-right corner.

The visitors went back in front when Jack King's deflected shot beat Stevenage goalkeeper Steve Arnold.

Preston completed the win thanks to goals from outside the area from Jeffrey Monakana and Nicky Wroe.
