Stevenage 4-1 Yeovil Town

Stevenage hammered Yeovil 4-1 to record a first win in five League Two games.

Goals from Luke Amos, Jon Smith, Danny Newton and Ben Kennedy eased the hosts to victory before the Glovers scored through Ryan Seager.

Stevenage made a bright start, with Newton shooting just wide before Amos fired the home side in front - curling in a brilliant 25-yard dipping shot after 16 minutes.

Kennedy was then denied by a last-ditch challenge before Jonny Maddison saved well to deny Mark McKee from close range as the hosts pressed for a second.

Kennedy also volleyed over when he was put clear but Stevenage did finally double their lead in first-half stoppage time, Smith finding the bottom corner with a powerful low drive from 20 yards.

And just a minute into the second half, it was 3-0 as Newton converted a Kennedy cross from close range.

On 58 minutes the game was over as Ben Wilmot set up Kennedy to make it 4-0 before Seager pounced on an error for the Glovers' goal.
