His introduction may well have caught him by surprise but new loan signing Ashley Chambers was pleased to make an immediate impact in the 2-2 draw at Exeter City.
Chambers was drafted in on a month’s loan from Conference Premier side Cambridge United on Friday, and was straight into action as a half-time substitute for Luke Howell.
And it was his pass which fell into the path of Luke Norris to score the equaliser, before Medy Elito slotted home from the spot to give the Daggers the lead.
It was a disappointing end to his debut with the visitors conceding late on, but Chambers believed there were a lot of positives they could draw from the result.
“I enjoyed it, coming on at half time was a bit surprising to me but it’s nice to get straight into the thick of things,” said Chambers.
“At 1-0 down we worked really hard to get the lead and it’s just unfortunate at the end there where we concede.
“Everyone is really disappointed but we have got to take the positives and how all of us feel in that we were the dominant side for a lot of that game.
“It’s good to get on and affect the team straight away. I’ll try and bring assists and goals and I am looking forward to the month with the Daggers.”
Chambers played against Daggers in a development team friendly on Tuesday for Cambridge, and it all became apparent to the 24-year-old that a swift move back into the Football League could come about the following day, having only left York City in January for the U’s.
And though it was a bit hectic, the former Leicester City youngster is pleased to be back in League Two.
“By Wednesday it was being talked about and Thursday it was being finalised,” he added.
“So then I was travelling down Friday and obviously involved here today so it was all really quick but that’s football.
“It’s always good to be back and it’s good to come to a team who are looking to play football the right way. That will suit me perfectly.”
