Another great chance City! Nicholls lobs the goalkeeper but just onto the bar...
It was a great ball forward from Ribeiro to find Wheeler on the run - great control, lovely pass and Nicholls saw stopper Day advancing...
Just tries to lift it over the keeper but find the roof of the net.
Another superb chance goes begging for City. Nicholls' shot is blocked by Henry after a great break from Wheeler...
- Yellow card: Exeter City
Ribeiro in the book. Holds onto Brunt's shirt 20 or so yards out and is the first name taken for that foul.
Dean Parrett bends the free-kick over the wall, and well over the bar.
Not a good sign for City - Grimes is down and holding his ankle. Play stopped for the meantime.
Grimes is on his feet - remains to be seen whether he'll be able to continue.
Grimes is back on the field and moving okay at the moment.
Half-time: Stevenage 0 Exeter City 0. Goalless at the break but lots of chances being created.
Matt Grimes is out the tunnel early, just trying to run off his ankle knock. Moving well at the moment which is a good sign indeed.
Both teams are back out the tunnel - no sign of any subs at the break. City kicking towards the visiting fans this half.
Early chance in the second half for Stevenage. Brunt finds Lee on half-way, he drives to the edge of the box and shoots over
Grimes again takes a knock as he draws a foul and is taking a little time to get back up. He's back on his feet.
More good chances for City. First Nicholls benefits from a poor defensive touch - chips in a cross, no-one there...
... Harley keeps it alive, Woodman finds Grimes whose shots it blocked, then Bennett shoots a couple of yards wide. 0-0.
Now Ribeiro is the man down hurt. Not sure what happened but just getting seen by physio Graham McAnuff
Ribeiro is coming off, injured. Davies is coming on.
Sercombe has dropped in at right-back. Davies in midfield.
So we've had a substitute apiece so far, both forced with injury. Free-kick Boro, to the left of the box.
Somehow the ball stays out - it is flicked on and the diverted past the near post - goal-kick.
Good delivery from the right flank by Sercombe - Nicholls heads the ball wide of the far post under pressure.
Wow - Tom Pett comes close for Stevenage. Pulls his shot just past the far post from a narrow angle on the right.
Wheeler down hurt. Looked like something off the ball - City bench looks incensed.
Just over a quarter of the game remains and somehow it's still 0-0 despite chances at either end.
Big shout for a pen - Woodman strafes a ball into the box and Wheeler is shoved to the ground by Charles - not given
Charlie Lee hits the bar! Spectacular effort from the forward
Stevenage pressing now and looking dangerous. Corner to the hosts on the left
Davies collects on the left from Bennett - worth a strike but the ball bobbled just before he made contact and flew wide
Hamon saves from Brunt from a tight angle - the Boro forward had time to watch it drop out the air before striking
Butterfield tries to score a worldie from 35 yards - wonderful hit and a good save from Day for Stevenage
Sercombe lifts one in behind the defence for Wheeler but Wells does well to put it out for a throw
Goal to Stevenage - the ball bobbles about in the box and it's hooked into the net by Lee. 1-0 Boro.
Six minutes to go and Boro lead 1-0 through Charlie Lee. Neat finish from the sub but gutting for Exeter. Still time...
Big penalty shout for Exeter after Sercombe's cross from the left saw plenty of wrestling. Again not given.
Morrison for Harley is the sub - 87 played, City trailing 1-0.
Corner to City - Nicholls was lurking at the back post and a cross needed heading behind
Grimes' corner is dealt with and Stevenage now have four added minutes to see out the game, leading 1-0
About two of the added minutes remain and Exeter still trail 1-0
Morrison concedes a foul, and then talks himself into the book
That's full-time. Stevenage 1 Exeter City 0. A nine-game undefeated run finally comes to an end at the hands of the Boro.
