Stevenage manager Alex Revell has been given a vote of confidence from chairman Phil Wallace.

It came as the club announced the departure of first-team coach and manager Mark Sampson.

Wallace said: "Mark has performed diligently on the coaching side since Dean Wilkins came in to assist Alex Revell but wants to move on to new challenges, and we wish him the very best.

“Ronnie Henry will assist Alex and Dean at training on a temporary basis.

“Our league results have been unacceptable to all of us, and Alex and I have had several discussions recently.

"We both believe this group of players can deliver consistent winning performances to climb the table but we both know that has to start happening soon."

Boro meanwhile advanced to the knockout stages of the Papa John's Trophy after a 1-0 win at home to Cambridge United.
