Read on for Nub News' Stevenage FC fan and writer Owen Rodbard's opinion
Ashby-Hammond: 6.5- Some nervy kicking moments as he swept up the ball, solid handling
Smith: 7.5- Brilliant goal and assist, lively, could've done better for the goal conceded before half time
Sweeney: 8.5- Controlled the backline, supreme on the ball, Rolls Royce of a player
Vancooten: 7.5- Solid as always, helped Boro move the ball up the pitch quickly, some important tackles and interceptions to prevent danger
Piergianni: 7- Led his backline well, industrious and solid in the challenge
Clark: 8- Good poise for his goal, struggled against the tricky Gibson but never strayed from a challenge
Reeves: 8- Energetic as always, controlled the midfield with some excellent lung busting runs and passes to break the line
Read: 8- Magical, had added that battling side to his game which an Evans midfielder needs
Rose: 7.5- Energetic, fantastic leap, should've maybe scored with a couple of important chances, replaced after a hopefully not serious injury.
Norris: 7- Brilliant in the press, tenacious, good turn of pace and was unlucky not to score
Roberts: 7.5- A constant threat, never stopped running, strong hold up play, end product could be improved but put a solid shift in
