The win was the second in 12 Sky Bet League Two games for Boro but the 34-year-old insists he hasn’t been listening to criticism.

Sarll said: “I don’t know about any criticism. I don’t listen to negative people.

“I listen to my chairman who is very supportive and I’m trying to help alongside Phil Wallace and Glenn Roeder to build a proper football club that can sustain itself for many years to come.

“If people want to shout things at me they can always come and speak to me one-on-one, no problem, I’m always willing.”

Sarll stressed the club always comes before himself, adding: “I manage like I’m going to be here for 10 years. Whether people want me here for 10 days, 10 hours or 10 years, I don’t care.

“I’m here and I’m not going anywhere.”
