Match ends, Cambridge United 1, Stevenage 1.
Cambridge United 1-1 Stevenage
Robbie Simpson scored late on as Cambridge salvaged a point against play-off hopefuls Stevenage.
Stevenage took the lead when Dean Wells smashed a volley past goalkeeper Chris Dunn from David Martin's free-kick.
Chances were scarce throughout with Sullay Kaikai and Dean Parrett both off-target from set pieces.
The away side looked to be moving into the play-off places but Simpson scored from close range from a long throw in the final stages to equalise.
Stevenage manager Graham Westley told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"I think over the 90 minutes they went forward more than we did.
"We knew they were going to put a lot of emphasis on set plays, they strive to earn set plays. With the home crowd they were likely to get decisions and they did.
"It was difficult to get off the back foot and we couldn't get out. It was very easy for them to put us on the back foot and we had to be resilient - and we were."
