Cheltenham Town 0-2 Stevenage

Stevenage picked up their first win in four by comfortably overcoming struggling Cheltenham at Whaddon Road.

The Robins are now without a victory in eight matches under boss Michael Duff.

Stevenage started strongly and led when Kurtis Guthrie headed the opener from Jamal Campbell-Ryce's right-wing cross.

It was nearly 2-0 soon after when Alex Revell blasted over the crossbar from close range.

Cheltenham were poor, but came close to claiming an undeserved equaliser five minutes before half-time as Chris Hussey's free-kick was brilliantly saved by Seny Dieng diving to his left.

Stevenage doubled their advantage in first-half stoppage-time, with Steve Seddon finishing well after Cheltenham gave the ball away in their own penalty area.

Campbell-Ryce shot wide after being set up by Guthrie after the restart and Guthrie headed a chance just wide as Stevenage pressed for a third, but Cheltenham rarely threatened a reply.
