Daggers disappointed in defeat to Hertfordshire club on Tuesday

Craig Robson knows Dagenham & Redbridge did not do enough in both boxes to beat Boreham Wood in the National League on Tuesday.

Daggers went down 3-2 to Wood, with Bruno Andrade netting a double for the visitors.

All three goals for the visitors could have easily been prevented, while the Essex club were unable to do much at the other end despite seeing plenty of the ball.

It was a result that hit the Victoria Road outfit’s hopes of winning the title this term, with John Still’s men 10 points adrift of leaders Macclesfield Town.

And centre back Robson knows Daggers were not up to standard defensively against Wood.

“It was poor from us. We should have been 2-0 up before they even scored. Other than that, it’s poor defending from everyone. It’s three silly goals that we’ve conceded,” said the 27-year-old.

“That’s been the story of our season – we’ve not been good enough in both boxes.

“We weren’t clinical enough in both boxes against Boreham Wood and that’s our prime problem. We won’t win games if we do that.”

The defeat followed a confidence-boosting 4-2 win at home to Hartlepool United on Saturday, which ended a run of four league games without a win.

Prior to that poor streak of form, Daggers had won four straight matches in the league.

However, by failing to beat Wood, the Essex club were unable to get on another good run of form, much to stand-in skipper Robson’s disappointment.

“One minute we’re up, then we’re down; we can’t get any consistency,” added the former Bognor Regis Town man.

“That’s our own fault. If we keep playing like that, we won’t even make the play-offs, let alone win the league.

“We have to be more consistent, which has been the problem at the moment.”

Daggers will have to wait a while to get the defeat to Wood out of their system, with the trip to Sutton United on January 20 their next competitve fixture.

And the gap between matches only adds to Robson’s frustration over the loss to Luke Garrard’s men.

“We’ll have to wait a while for our next game, which makes it even worse,” he said.

“We need to recuperate, get back to the drawing board and push on again because, at the moment, it’s not good enough.”
