Darren Sarll says it’s important to have players at the club who will ‘roll their sleeves up’ after bringing in Greg Luer as he looks to turn around the club’s fortunes.
Sarll brought in the Hull City striker on loan at the weekend, and the new arrival came off the bench to make his debut in the 1-0 defeat to Wycombe Wanderers.
The game was a fourth successive loss for caretaker boss Sarll’s men, and the club has now gone 419 minutes without a goal since the second of Byron Harrison’s brace against Cambridge United on February 13.
Sarll says he hopes that Luer would be able to ‘add that finishing touch’ to his side, with Boro set to face the league’s top two sides - Northampton Town and Oxford United - in their next two matches.
“He’s a goalscorer. He came in late on Friday, so he’s not had too much time with the group,” Sarll told the Comet.

“He’s someone who will just score a goal. We haven’t scored in four and we might need another goalscorer, and he’s one by trade.
“His talents and attributes lend more to being in scoring positions and having the last touch of the ball.
