Blackpool end Stevenage’s unbeaten run

There was little joy at the seaside for Stevenage as their unbeaten run came to an end at Blackpool on Tuesday.
In a town synonymous with kiss-me-quick hats and the Golden Mile Boro had sand kicked in their faces by a Blackpool side harbouring hopes of a promotion push themselves.
Just a measly 2,456 saw this encounter but following on from the high of a victory over Luton Town at the weekend, Stevenage couldn’t quite follow up that performance and were beaten for the first time since January 21 thanks to a Mark Cullen penalty after Jack King had handled in the box.
And with the two sides directly below Boro in the table, Carlisle United and Luton, cancelling each other out in a goalless draw on Tuesday both moved above Stevenage, leaving Darren Sarll’s men sixth in the table.
Stevenage face another top eight team this weekend with Portsmouth the visitors to the Lamex Stadium.
