Graham Westley is in his third spell as Stevenage boss

Stevenage made it 16 points from a possible 18 after a 2-0 win at York.

Adam Marriott and Tom Pett scored as the visitors extended their unbeaten run to a sixth game.

Home keeper Bobby Olejnik brilliantly denied Pett, before Marriott headed in a loose ball after Charlie Lee's first-half volley had come back off the bar.

Graham Westley's men doubled their advantage shortly after the hour-mark when Pett found Olejnik's top left-hand corner from 30 yards.

York City manager Russ Wilcox told BBC Radio York:

"Not good enough, that's the bottom line really.

"I feel for the supporters. The last two home performances have been outstanding, but today we just didn't perform.

"The lack of quality today was eye catching - we just looked lost and it was a really bad day."

Stevenage manager Graham Westley told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"We knew it wasn't going to be an easy trip, I thought the players did a good solid job.

"In the second half I thought we got right on top of the game and kept the ball in their half."

On Tom Pett's goal: "It was an incredible strike, he's growing and growing. He was a non-league player this time last year.

"Our budget is spent so we'd have to move players out to move players in."
