Last Updated: 07/09/19 5:31pm
Cheltenham continued their fine home form with a 4-2 victory over winless Stevenage.
Danny Newton equalised twice for Stevenage to cancel out goals from Gavin Reilly and Sean Long.
But Ryan Broom's strike made it 3-2 10 minutes from the end and substitute Alex Addai rounded off the scoring in time added on.
Reilly fired in the opener in the 22nd minute after Luke Varney's flick on from a long clearance by goalkeeper Scott Flinders.
Stevenage improved after the break and levelled in the 48th minute. Chris Stokes teed up Joel Byrom and his cross was nodded into the bottom left corner by Newton, who had come on in the 26th minute after an injury to Scott Cuthbert.
Chris Clements' ball forward was well controlled by Broom, who squared for Long to net the first goal of his professional career in the 57th minute.
Newton equalised for a second time in the 72nd minute with a deflected shot but Broom fired home after Chris Hussey's fine ball in from the left. Addai then raced onto Broom's through ball and finished confidently.
