Boro beat Southend United reserves 2-0

Chris Whelpdale continued his comeback from injury with 45 minutes in a behind-closed-doors friendly today.

The winger, who came off the bench in the 2-0 win over Hartlepool United on Saturday, joined fellow first team player Jerome Okimo in a side that beat Southend United reserves 2-0.

Jack Storer opened the scoring for Stevenage, before a trialist curled in goal number two.

Boro return to league action on Saturday with a trip to Dagenham & Redbridge.
