Matt Godden says Stevenage’s win over Portsmouth has ‘sent out a message’ to the rest of League Two.

The striker scored his 20th league goal - 21 in all competitions - of the campaign in the 3-0 win at the Lamex and now Godden is eyeing another three points at Cambridge United.

Asked whether given Pompey’s form - they had scored four goals without conceding in each of their two previous games - it was Stevenage’s best performance of the season so far, Godden said: “In a way. It was a top all round performance from back to front.

“It was topped off with three goals and the clean sheet which makes it even better.

“With the size of the club and with them having the best part of 100 fans singing [still in the ground 45 minutes after full-time] it’s a massive result. It sends out a massive statement to the rest of the league that we’ll take everyone one.”
