Stevenage boss Darren Sarll cut a frustrated figure after his side lost 2-0 at Meadow Lane against Notts County on Saturday as they fell to two late goals.

Jorge Grant netted with 13 minutes to go followed by former Newcastle United forward Shola Ameobi doubling the lead 180 seconds later.

The result meant Boro remain in 15th place as Kevin Nolan’s Notts rose to fourth in League Two.

Speaking afterwards Sarll: “It’s unbelievably frustrating. I thought for large parts of the game we controlled it. The six minutes and the two goals were an Achilles heel for us. I’m pleased with the performance but they have to understand penetration when attacking and in possession.

“There is a very fine line between possession and penetration and we need to sure we develop that. I thought some of the young players showed great qualities out there and I felt quite comfortable and fairly solid.”
