Sorry Stevenage finish bottom of League One



Stevenage Football Club finished the final day of the football league season with a disappointing 2-0 defeat to League One runners-up Brentford.

Having stayed well in the game for the best part of an hour and a quarter Stevenage were powerless to stop a Marcello Trotta shot from finding the net as the Italian slotted home low into the right hand corner of Chris Day’s goal.
Brentford would later add to their one goal lead when on loan midfielder Alan Judge found the same corner of Chris Day’s in the 90th minute of the game.

Stevenage will be playing in League Two next season.

It was an improved performance from the relegated Hertfordshire side but with just two shots on target Stevenage simply didn’t test their opponent’s goal enough.

Their only two efforts came from Michael Doughty, who’s shot could only be parried back into the danger zone by former Tottenham Hotspur and Stevenage youth goalkeeper David Button, but the away side failed to take advantage. Stevenage’s second shot at goal came from Luke Freeman which this time was comfortably saved by Button.

With Stevenage playing their last two games for pride things were looking positive when they beat Walsall 3-2 in the final home game of the season last week.
But with fellow relegated side Shrewsbury Town drawing on the final day of the season away to Gillingham, courtesy of an 84th minute equalizer from second half substitute Shaun Miller. It meant Stevenage would finish the season bottom of the League One standings due to goal difference.

Joining Stevenage and Shrewsbury going down into League Two were Carlisle and Tranmere Rovers.

All four teams will be hopeful of bouncing straight back into League One next season and will gain confidence from a Chesterfield side who have done just that. Chesterfield beat fourth placed Fleetwood by two goals to one to clinch the title on the final day ahead of Scunthorpe and Rochdale, who failed to win their final game.
