Stevenage 3-0 Bury

Stevenage kept their promotion hopes alive as Joel Byrom's penalty helped them comfortably beat Bury to secure the final play-off place in League One.

Chris Reid made it 1-0 when he pounced on Efe Sodje's clearance, controlled the ball on his chest and fired home.

Byrom doubled Stevenage's advantage, converting from the spot after Sodje had fouled Robin Shroot in the area.

Bury created few opportunities and Chris Beardsley sealed the victory with a powerful effort from 20 yards out.

Stevenage needed to win to stay in the play-offs and they will now face Sheffield United in the two-legged semi-finals.
