Pett, who played for the Broadhall Way outfit for four seasons before signing for the Imps in January 2018, played against Boro as Danny Cowley’s table-toppers lost a two-goal lead.

A brace from former Stevenage winger Bruno Andrade for Lincoln was trumped by a superlative late double by the talented Ilias Chair as battling Boro gained an unexpected point.

Pett was naturally disappointed with the result for his side but also showed his sporting nature by wishing Boro and their fans well for the rest of the season.

Speaking to CometSport after the match Pett said: “I’m disappointed with the result. At 2-0 up we could and should have seen the game out perhaps after Bruno’s two goals but it wasn’t to be.

“Ilias is a real talent and he scored two exceptional goals. But we will dust ourselves down and go again. We are still in a good position and we need to keep working hard and we’ll see where it gets us come the end of the season.”
With Lincoln still four points clear at the top and modest Pett receiving plaudits from seasoned observers for the quality of his play for Cowley’s league leaders the former Broadhall Way winger showed he is a class act on and off the pitch by hailing Stevenage.

He added: “I had a great time at Boro and I wish the club and the fans all the best.”
