Darren Sarll praised his side as they came back from behind to win 4-1 at the Globe Arena against Morecambe.
Despite leading at the half, Sarll was much happier with how his players performed in the second period as Boro put the home team out of sight.
“It has obviously been a really good day for us. I thought the first half was poor by our standards and I really was disappointed at half time with our performance but I think for once, the gods were smiling and we managed to come in with an advantage.
“But I thought the second half was the standard that we have become accustomed to now; I think the players were brilliant second half.”
The star man in the win was Dean Parrett who followed up strong displays both last weekend and in midweek to score two goals today.
Sarll says that Parrett has been magnificent since he took charge of the team.
“He has been threatening to do that more and more every week. I feel like Dean and I have become quite close in terms of the impact we have had on each other’s period at the club here and I seem to be getting a little bit more out of him than we have done this season.
“What I keep encouraging Dean to do is to use his natural attributes. He has got unbelievable athleticism, the boy – very dynamic.
“You could see the way he covered the ground. I don’t think there was another midfield player - with all due respect to the other midfield players - that could have caught and made up that ground with the goalie kicking it 70 yards. What a pass from Jamie Jones and Dean Parrett can catch the ball up and go tap it in at the end. That is some doing.
“I am really pleased for the lad because he has had a tough season but he has been magnificent for me. He has played out wide for me, he has played in different positions and he has put Stevenage ahead of Dean Parrett and I think that has been the key to it.”
