Stevenage romped to a convincing 4-0 home victory over Cheltenham to claim their third straight win.

The deadlock was broken in the 16th minute when Mark Roberts pounced from close range after latching onto Stacy Long's cross.

Cheltenham responded with Matthew Green forcing a fine save out of Chris Day, but just past the half-hour mark Stevenage's lead was doubled by Byron Harrison, who forced the ball home from close range.

Five minutes before the break the hosts went close again as Long fired in a shot which was bravely blocked by Steve Elliott.

Michael Bostwick made it 3-0 in the 52nd minute when he crashed home superbly from the edge of the box and two minutes later Harrison headed in Lawrie Wilson's pinpoint cross.
