Dagenham & Redbridge assistant manager Junior Lewis believes their 0-0 draw against local rivals Leyton Orient was a typical derby.

The former Boreham Wood head coach and Fulham midfielder admits the O’s went close but so did his Daggers side and either side could have nicked the three points on the day.

Lewis is confident his side will not dwell on the draw and their fortunes will turn round in the coming week.

“It was a typical derby, bit feisty, lots of free-kicks and fouls but it could have gone either way,” Lewis said.

“I think Mark Cousins made a great save off a far post header, we had a penalty shout and we’ll have to look at the video, but at the same time it looked like a penalty.

“Faye also had a great chance towards the end so I think we could have lost it but we could have definitely won it towards the end of the match.”

Daggers are now five games without a win and Lewis admits it’s not a concern for them as their performances have been strong and he expects their fortunes to turn ahead of their match against Hartlepool this weekend.

They welcome The Pools to Victoria Road on Saturday (3pm) as they look to end their recent dip in form and climb back up the table.

“No we’re not concerned, we play it game by game, we talk about performing and if we keep performing then we’ll win a lot of matches in this league.

“We’ve just got to keep focused on Hartlepool on Saturday and hopefully that can be our next win.”

Dagenham fell to a 1-0 defeat to Hartlepool earlier this season thanks to a Jonathan Franks strike in the 75th minute despite a dominate performance at Victoria Park and will be hoping they can get what they deserve this time round.

“We played them at their place and we played ever so well, I think we deserved to win, and if we can get that same performance then I’m confident we’ll get a win.”
