Stevenage moved a point clear at the top of the Blue Square Premier after
victory over 10-man Stafford.
The visitors found it hard going after Matthew Hazley was red carded for a challenge on John Martin in first-half stoppage time.
Early in the second half John Nutter set up Steve Morison who made no mistake with the header.
Adam Miller added a second with a powerful right-foot drive, with Oliver Allen heading home Stevenage's third.
