Cambridge United 0-4 Stevenage

Stevenage won a League Two game for the first time since October with a thumping success at Cambridge.

Boro had scored just three goals in their 11-match winless run but ran riot as Elliott List's opener was followed by second-half strikes from Jake Cassidy, Charlie Carter and Charlie Lakin.

The visitors went ahead nine minutes before half-time as List ran on to a high ball with little support but took on the Cambridge defence and angled a shot into the far corner.

In reply, the home side thought they would have the opportunity to get back on level terms when Liam O'Neil was felled by Diaguely Dabo in the box, only for referee Ross Joyce to book O'Neil for diving.

Cambridge's best chance came early in the second half when George Taft's header from a Jack Roles corner was cleared off the line by Ben Nugent.

Stevenage doubled their lead a minute before the hour when Joe Leesley crossed from the left and debutant Cassidy powered a header beyond Dimitar Mitov.

Substitute Carter sealed things three minutes from the end, running through unchallenged before finding the top corner, and there was still time for Lakin to make it four in added time.
