Stevenage 5-0 Farnborough

John Dreyer made the perfect start as caretaker manager of Stevenage with a comprehensive victory over Farnborough at Broadhall Way.

The reserve-team boss took over at rock-bottom Borough following Wayne Turner's dismissal in midweek.

First-half goals from Martin Williams, Simon Wormull and Justin Richards got his reign off to a dream start.

And two second-half strikes from Richards completed his hat-trick and a memorable victory.

In-form Farnborough crushed Woking 5-0 on Boxing Day but had no answer to fired-up Borough, who were eager to close the gap at the bottom of the table.

After six minutes, Richards whipped over a teasing cross from the left flank which was met by Williams, who fired home from close range.

Wormull then drilled home a stunning shot from 30 yards and, on the stroke of half-time, Richards scored the third goal from close range.

Richards grabbed his second after 58 minutes and completed the rout with a late penalty to end Stevenage's run of three Conference defeats.


Stevenage: Westhead, Goodliffe, Trott, Jamie Campbell, Travis, Fraser, Wormull, McMahon, Blackwood, Richards, Williams. Subs: Flack, Wilson, Pacquette, Charlie MacDonald, Bell.

Farnborough: Pennock, Bunce, Laker, Annon, Gregory, Watson, Lenny Piper, Chris Piper, Carroll, Charlery, Baptiste. Subs: Vansittart, Lee, Taggart, Osborn, Holloway.

Referee: G Turner (Chesterfield)
