League One: Stevenage 1 Brentford 0

Marcus Haber scored the only goal of the game as Stevenage dented Brentford’s automatic promotion hopes.

And they were punished with 15 minutes to go as Haber fired home after a ball in from Mark Roberts.

It’s the second time Stevenage have dealt the Bees a blow in their battle to win promotion after winning last year to end Uwe Rosler’s play-off dreams.
