Revell hat-trick inspires Stevenage to victory over Exeter

Alex Revell scored a hat-trick as Stevenage marked their final home game of the season in style with a 3-1 victory over Exeter that ended the visitors' automatic promotion hopes.
The Grecians needed something out of the game to keep up the pressure on third-place Wycombe, but their win at Chesterfield means that they can no longer be caught.
Stevenage opened the scoring in the 14th minute when Ben Sheaf found Matt Godden with a fine pass and he teed up Revell to score at the near post.
Exeter goalkeeper Christy Pym was then badly at fault for the hosts' second goal, as he was beaten to a loose ball by Revell, who rolled into an empty net.
Four minutes into the second half, Revell completed his hat-trick with an excellent first-time finish after being teed up inside the area by Ben Kennedy.
The Grecians did manage to pull one back with 12 minutes left through a confident Pierce Sweeney penalty after Jake Taylor was tripped in the area by Terence Vancooten.
