Darren Sarll is looking forward to Saturday’s home game against Newport and says he is excited to see the weeks training put into practice at 3pm.

A win at the weekend would see Boro jump Newport in the table and Sarll says that the opportunity provides extra motivation.

“I think there is an excitement to see the work we have done this week in terms of how we want to play Saturday and the little differences and changes to how we will play.

“I am really excited to see those things come into fruition. I am motivated and invigorated by the challenge that if we win the game we can obviously move ourselves up the league for the first time in a while. It has been a long time coming.

“It is a big game. We both know it is a big game. We know that what goes on below us is also important but we need to concentrate on being us, being nice and resilient, solid and taking our opportunities when they are presented - and they will present themselves.

“We are at home and we are going to do what we always try to do at home and attack the game.”

Whilst the team have improved defensively in recent weeks - conceding just two goals from the last four games - Sarll knows that there are improvements to be made going forward but is confident the team are on the right track.

“I think the last four games has seen a steadiness in us and give us that little bit of a footing and platform from which we can push on.

“I know the Yeovil game, our last home game wasn’t a great spectacle but I really like playing at the Lamex. I feel at home at the Lamex and I really want to do our supporters justice by putting in a performance.”

“I think the defensive players have been fantastic. When I mean defensive players, every player when we lose the ball is working their heart out. At times, they are still working in such a frenzy that they are not calm and composed enough in possession to produce a moment of real composure and technical quality.

“We will carry on working at that intensity to make players more familiar with handling the ball whilst they are in that emotional place. I think once we get that - and it takes time, it takes development - once we get that we will have a lovely blend and balance to our attacking play and defensive play.”
