Roberts: On the scoresheet for Boro

Stevenage kept up their promising start to the League One season with a 1-1 draw at Oldham Athletic on Saturday.

Boro captain Mark Roberts saw his early goal cancelled out by veteran striker Shefki Kuqi and the newly-promoted visitors hung on to a point under pressure.

Stevenage got off to a flyer with Darius Charles forcing a save from Oldham goalkeeper Alex Cisak before they grabbed the lead after four minutes. Michael Bostick's long-range shot was going well wide but Roberts got his head to the ball six yards out to leave Cisak wrong-footed.

Oldham levelled after 19 minutes. Kuqi met Chris Taylor's left-wing free-kick with a glancing header eight yards out which goalkeeper Chris Day only just failed to stop.

The Latics were furious to be denied a penalty when John Mousinho seemed to haul down Jean Yves Mvoto.

Both sides had chances after the break, with Roberts off target for Stevenage and Oldham pair Mvoto and Matt Smith unable to force the ball home before Robbie Simpson grazed the crossbar with a late free-kick.
