Stubbs again. Maybe lucky to be not given as a foul as he seemed to be climbing on the defender but who cares!
It did look like a possible foul but the Stevenage defender was very weak in his attempts to fend off Stubbs.

No difference between header by Stubbs and the contest he had to face just before their goal. Ref is consistent

If Sam was climbing for the second goal, and there was a hint of it, there was also plenty of climbing by their players from the free kick leading to their equaliser. At least the ref was consistent in that.

Possible foul for the 2nd but who cares
Just watched that back and yeah it's hard to see that goal standing if it was reviewed on video. Stubbs has both his hands on the defender's shoulders as he is climbing up to head it in.
So makes up for our pen not being given on Tuesday, but that won't placate Steve Evans lol

On first view a Stevenage defender had a massive handful of (I think) Hartridge's shirt just before Stubbs powered in his second.
But I don't think Stubbs fouled their player anyway, he just wanted it more (both times).
Anyway, if it wasn't a goal it was a penalty.
