Controversial finish to a routine win for Cherries.
Full-time: Stevenage 0 Cherries 1.
Darius Charles sent off for Stevenage. Brett Pitman booked. It all came after an incident which saw Harry Arter left injured in the centre circle. It prompted angry scenes on the pitch and between the two sets of staff on the touchline. Late drama.
Four minutes added time.

STEADY EDDIE 1 for the road says
Come on cherries, hang on.!!!!!
Around five minutes remaining here. Stevenage have been very poor, to be frank.
Very close to a second for Cherries as Grabban fires narrowly wide from 20 yards.
Brett Pitman working hard, holding up the ball and providing the majority of the classy moments in an uneventful game.
Wes Fogden has performed superbly at left-back so far. Can't imagine he has played there often, if at all, in his career.
Fraser was injured so another enforced change. Hughes slots into his usual deep-lying midfield role, with Grabban moving to the right and Pitman up top on his own.
Cherries sub: Hughes for Fraser.
Stevenage sub: Shroot for Hoskins.
Ryan Fraser is receiving treatment.
Great pressing by Arter and Grabban to win possession but Pugh is crowded out as he attempts to shoot.
Greg Tansey and Luke Freeman both lash shots off target after trying their luck from range.

Steve Cook clears an Akins header off the line.
Cherries attacking the end housing their travelling supporters.
Second half under way.
Half-time: Stevenage 0 Cherries 1.
Greg Tansey hits it straight at Allsop.
Stevenage free-kick. 25 yards out.
Three minutes added time.
Fair to say the locals thought the penalty award was harsh. Cherries decent value for the lead, though.
GOAL CHERRIES. Brett Pitman penalty. 38 minutes. Stevenage 0 Cherries 1.
Penalty to Cherries. Keeper Arnold felled O'Kane.
Cherries sub: Fraser for Ritchie. Fogden moves to left-back.
Ryan Fraser is preparing to come on in place of Ritchie.
Cherries down to 10 men for now.
Nasty clash of heads between Ritchie and Comminges. Ritchie has headed towards the changing rooms for treatment. No sub yet.
Sweet 20-yard strike by Ritchie is well held by Arnold.
Patient stuff from Cherries, playing out from the back. Howe's men have had the better of the possession.
Good vision from Pitman to send an early pass over the top for Grabban but his effort was too close to Arnold.
Pitman releases Grabban and his shot is blocked by keeper Steve Arnold. Great chance.
Chances few and far between so far, aside from those two early shots. Both teams aiming to end a poor run. Stevenage have lost 12 of their past 15 league games.
Vocal support from the away fans. Decent enough start from Cherries.
Lewis Grabban shoots straight at keeper Steve Arnold from 15 yards.
Lucas Akins fires wide from 25 yards for Stevenage.
Match under way.
The teams are out here.
Very cold night in Stevenage but a good number of Cherries supporters have made the trip. Looks to be about 300 so far.
