Leaders Forest Green blew away struggling Stevenage in a dominant 4-0 victory to maintain their flying start to the League Two season.

Goals from Kane Wilson, Matty Stevens, Jamille Matt and Jake Young did the damage as Rovers ran riot in what has been their best-ever start to a league campaign.

It was a comprehensive victory for Rob Edwards’ impressive visitors as they deservedly claimed their sixth win in eight league outings so far.

Defender Wilson fired the visitors into the lead after just two minutes. The 21-year-old’s smart strike was his first-ever away goal in six seasons as a professional and also his first goal since March this year.

It got even better for the visitors five minutes after the restart as goal-machine Stevens scored his sixth goal in eight league games to double the advantage.

Nicky Cadden provided the assist and Stevens slotted home on the edge of the six-yard box.

Not to be outdone, Matt bagged his fifth of the campaign, heading home just before the hour to put the contest well out of reach.

Young rubbed salt into Stevenage’s wounds when he smashed home a fourth goal with nine minutes left.

Afterwards Rob Edwards said he was delighted with the result, but insisted there is still more to come from his side.

"I thought we were outstanding," he said.

"From the very first minute we were excellent and we scored very early on and looked a threat.

“We should have been more than 1-0 up at half-time, but we obviously got the goals we deserved in the second half. Full credit to the lads, I thought they were outstanding.

“We had a good start and then maintained it. There was lots of good control in the first half and we could have scored at least another one.

“I was a little bit frustrated that it was only 1-0 at half-time but really pleased that we got some more goals in the second half and put the game to bed.

“I don’t think they (Stevenage) had any decent chances, but you always want more and we’re striving for more. We got our rewards by keeping doing the right things.”
