Stevenage 0-2 Notts County

Former England striker Teddy Sheringham's managerial career began with defeat as his Stevenage side were beaten at home by Notts County.

Curtis Thompson finished a superb counter-attacking goal to give the Magpies the lead before the break.

Mawouna Amevor sealed the away win in the 88th minute, tapping in after Jon Stead's shot was saved by Chris Day.

Amevor then turned villain, sent-off along with Stevenage's Tom Hitchcock following a tussle on the halfway line.

Stevenage boss Teddy Sheringham told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"The performance was very pleasing for me. Everybody sees different things in different games. Personally as a manager I was very pleased with my team.

"That was probably one of the best teams we'll play this year. I don't know that for definite, it's early days, but they were a decent outfit and made it very tough for us.

"The game was full of chances. You have to take your chances. We didn't do that today and they did. We'll have to concentrate on that next game."
