Stevenage caretaker boss Mark Sampson was quick to praise the club’s supporters after they helped Boro to victory in their must-win game against Morecambe at the bottom of League Two on Saturday.

Both sides were in desperate need of victory as they battle against the drop, and it was the home team who got it, with Scott Cuthbert heading the winner on 81 minutes to secure a 1-0 win.

Stevenage were roared on by the crowd at the Lamex, and it didn't go unnoticed by Sampson, who told CometSport: "They are class.

"The supporters are a really great bunch.

"I could only imagine how tough it is being a Stevenage fan this season, but I just want to thank them really because it does make such a difference to everyone, the players, the staff, it's huge.
