Stevenage fought back three times to earn a 3-3 draw with Notts County in a fierce battle at Meadow Lane.

Boro’s determined fight-backs were only enough for a point against the Magpies – who are winless and bottom of League Two - as the visitors earned their 12th point of the campaign.

Ben Kennedy, Alex Revell and Danny Newton provided equalisers to goals from Jon Stead, Enzio Boldewijn and Kane Hemmings in a gripping contest.

The game’s end-to-end pattern began from the kick-off but it took 22-minutes for the first goal. Ben Nugent fouled Stead in the Boro box, before the striker netted his penalty for 1-0.

Boro responded positively and equalised in the 35th minute when Newton beat his man and crossed for Kennedy to tap in. But they were quickly behind again, as Boldewijn cut in from the left and finished into the corner for 2-1.

But Boro responded again, with Steve Seddon crossing for Revell to loop his header over the keeper for a 2-2 half-time score.

Two-minutes after the restart, Nott were restored their lead, when Lewis Allesandra sent Kane Hemmings through to blast past Farman.

It took almost 30-minutes for another response, but it finally came from the reliable Newton. He’d been at the forefront of the visitor’s drive for a leveller, and finished coolly after Revell had squared.

Boro pushed for a late winner but couldn’t find an opening, and settled for their third draw of the campaign.
