Stevenage boss Darren Sarll has been sacked after two years in charge – but was his record that bad? Layth Yousif looks into the statistics and compares it with previous Boro managers.
The League Two outfit threw away a two goal lead for the second time in two weeks after their 2-2 draw at Port Vale on Saturday.
The result followed another disappointing display in the last 20 minutes of their match against Crewe at the Lamex last Saturday when they squandered a two goal lead in the last 18 minutes.
The 35-year-old took over at the Lamex in a caretaker capacity in February 2016 after Teddy Sheringham was dismissed.
But how did his statistics stack-up against previous managers?
Darren Sarll – February 2016 – March 2018:
Total games: 114
Win percentage: 35.9 per cent
Teddy Sheringham – May 2015 – February 2016:
Total games: 33
Win percentage: 21.2 per cent
Graham Westley – March 2013 – May 2015:
Total games: 112
Win percentage: 33.9 per cent
Gary Smith – January 2012 – March 2013:
Total games: 67
Win percentage: 32.8 per cent
Graham Westley – June 2008 – January 2012:
Total games: 202
Win percentage: 52.4 per cent
Of course there are lies, damn lies and statistics. But the figures above show Sarll had the second best winning ratio of any Stevenage manager over the last decade.
A harsh sacking? The stats indicate so.
