The assists may be comingwith regularity for Zavon Hines, but he was relieved to finally score his first goal for the Daggers in the 2-1 win at Accrington Stanley on Friday.
Hines should have scored in the first half when put through by Rhys Murphy, but goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli kept out the effort, while at the other end, Peter Murphy’s header struck the post from Lee Naylor’s corner.
But he did eventually find the net when Murphy was again the provider as Daggers hit Stanley on the counter attack after 55 minutes.
And in a similar move he returned the favour for Murphy to notch his third in as many games six minutes later.
There were a few nervy moments at the end when James Gray capitalised on goalkeeper Chris Lewington spilling Will Hatfield’s speculative effort in the last minute to pull one back, but the Daggers got over the line to secure the victory.
And Hines admits confidence in the camp is at an all-time high as they stretched their unbeaten run in the league to five games.
“It’s about time I got off the mark isn’t it?” said Hines. “It’s been all about getting off the mark and now I have that first goal hopefully many more will follow.
“Attacking-wise we created a lot of chances and we should have had more goals. We are disappointed to concede the goal at the end, but at the end of the day we got the win and we have got to be happy with that.
