George Boyd scored a hat-trick and Craig Dobson weighed in with a brace as Stevenage demolished 10-man Stafford.
Ged Murphy was sent off for violent conduct after just 19 minutes, and Boyd soon capitalised as he netted from close range on 25 and 34 minutes.
Dobson's shot into the top corner from 35 yards made it 3-0 and Steve Morison made it four just before half-time.
Boyd got his third on the hour when he fired into the top left corner before Dobson netted the sixth.
