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.

Chairman Phil Wallace said on Sunday morning: “We haven’t seen the progress expected since we strengthened in January so it is time to move on.

“Darren has given his all for us but our poor league form and points-per-game ratio of less than one since October is not something we can allow to continue.

“However, we owe Darren a lot. He stepped into the managerial role with no previous experience and has worked tirelessly to turn young academy players like Ben Wilmot, Mark McKee, Ben Kennedy and Dale Gorman into talented professionals, as well as managing our senior players.”

Former West Ham and Newcastle boss Glenn Roeder has also left his role as managerial advisor meaning first-team coach Nicky Shorey and captain Ronnie Henry will take training on Monday while the club decides what to do.

Boro host Colchester on Saturday.
