Comments:

League position: 20th Since gaining promotion from the Conference in 2010, this became Stevenage's heaviest defeat in the Football League. The club's record defeat is a 0-7 loss (also at home) to Southwick in the Vauxhall Opel League Division 1 on 1 February 1988.

Comments:

League position: 2nd This victory equalled Oxford United's club record for their biggest away win in the Football League. They also won by the same 5-1 margin at Walsall in League Division Two on Boxing Day in 1988 and at Leyton Orient in League Division Three on 4 December 1982.
