Daggers welcome Stones in the National League on Tuesday night

Assistant manager Darren Currie hopes Dagenham & Redbridge can turn in an improved performance when they host Maidstone United in the National League on Tuesday.

Though Daggers have won six of their last seven in the league, performances have not been of the highest quality in that run.

The Essex club have fallen behind in each of their last four matches and have conceded the opener in their last three, including during last week’s 2-1 win at home to Bromley.

And though Currie is pleased that Daggers are still grinding out results, he hopes their displays to pick up over the course of the next few fixtures.

“The performance against Bromley was still bitty, we looked a little nervy at times and lacked a little bit of intensity again,” said the ex-Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder.

“The gaffer (John Still) has been talking about it a lot of late, he mentioned it again at half time about finding a way to win, which we asked the boys to do.”

Daggers’ stuttering displays in recent weeks may be down to the pressure of the title race, with 13 games left for the Victoria Road outfit this term.

Still’s men are currently second and three points behind leaders Lincoln City, who have two games in hand over Daggers.

Currie says he can sympathise with Daggers if they are feeling some pressure, but says they have to get back to doing what they have done best this season if they want to remain in it.

I can understand there is tension at the minute because there’s a big prize at the end, but they have to understand what has got us in this position,” he added.

“Our fitness levels and our sharpness are a big part of why we are where we are we had that after our first goal against Bromley.”
