Posh had forced extra time thanks to a last-gasp equaliser from Shaun Ruzvidzo, but Stevenage scored once in each half of the extra 30 minutes to go through to a plum third round tie against Aston Villa.

Centre-back Bobby Copping had a chance to make it 2-2- late on when rushing through onto a fine Ruzvidzo pass, but he shot wide with only the goalkeeper to beat. Stevenage stormed straight down the other end to seal victory with a last-minute third goal.
