Boro better for boss

Martin pleased with progress

BORO produced the improved display manager Paul Martin was looking for to beat Waltham Forest 2-0 in the FA Trophy.

And their reward in Monday’s draw was a trip to Southern League outfit AFC Totton.

Martin said: “It was nothing spectacular. We changed our formation, going 4-3-3, and we got it right.

“It was comfortable in the end, but it should’ve been 4-0 or 5-0.

“The bonus is the prize money (�2,200). It’s much-needed at the club and we’ve fallen early before.

“Totton are in an equivalent league to us and on paper it looks like we’re not too far away, so I think we’ve got a chance.”
