BLUES boss Jim Magilton was determined to take the positives from last night's defeat.
Magilton said: “Everyone is disappointed after getting beat like that but it was a worthwhile exercise.
“We knew how competitive these games would be and I'm delighted from that point of view although I would like a reverse of the result. Sometimes wins can paper over cracks so we can learn a lot from this loss.
“We are still a long way short of fitness and have a lot of work to do. Stevenage were very good, very bright.
“It is all part and parcel of pre-season. You have good and you have bad and that wasn't very good. We had plenty of shots but our final ball was not good. Alan and Jon partnered very well and had a few half chances so I was pleased with them.”
