Stevenage 2-0 Grimsby- Match Report

Stevenage back on track with victory over Grimsby

Stevenage returned to winning ways after successive Sky Bet League Two defeats with a 2-0 victory over Grimsby.

Steven Schumacher put the home side ahead with a spectacular free-kick on three minutes before Jobi McAnuff grabbed a second on the hour.

And that was enough to land Boro their first victory in three matches.

It was a frantic start at Broadhall Way but while Grimsby began the day on the back of four wins in six, their out-of-form hosts - who had lost five of their last six - struck first.

And it came in some style as Schumacher placed the ball 30 yards out before producing a stunning free-kick that Dean Henderson was powerless to stop.

Omar Bogle passed up two similar set-piece opportunities at the other end, while Matt Godden hit high and wide with Stevenage's next best chance.

Upon the restart, Grimsby pushed and probed for a leveller.

But with 62 minutes on the clock, a mix-up between Henderson and Zak Mills gift-wrapped McAnuff a chance, and he took full advantage with a lobbed finish.
