Match ends, Stevenage 0, Mansfield Town 2.
Two goals in five second-half minutes from Ryan Tafazolli and Jack Thomas helped Mansfield beat Stevenage and claim a third away win of the season.
Stevenage had slightly the better of a scrappy first half, but Tom Conlon headed straight at keeper Brian Jensen.
Mansfield went in front when Tafazolli headed home powerfully from Adam Chapman's corner before Thomas slid in Craig Westcarr's measured, low centre.
Boro almost pulled a goal back, but substitute Dipo Akinyemi drilled wide.
Mansfield's win moves them up into seventh place in the League Two table, while a third defeat in a row for Teddy Sheringham's side means they sit in 20th.
