Dagenham & Redbridge captain Scott Doe believes his match-winning goal against Forest Green Rovers in the National League was one of his most vital for the club.

Doe headed home an 89th-minute winner for the Essex side after former Daggers striker Christian Doidge earlier cancelled out Jordan Maguire-Drew’s opener.

The 28-year-old skipper is well versed in scoring vital goals for Daggers, having scored one at Exeter City in April 2013 that arguably kept the club in the Football League at the time.

But Doe believes his most recent goal for Daggers might just bet his most crucial to date.

“It’s probably one of the most important goals I’ve scored for the club,” admitted the former Reading youngster.

“Christian’s header was good because there wasn’t much pace on the cross and he had to generate the power. We all know what he’s about and know he can head the ball.

“With mine, there was a lot more pace on the cross, but it was a bit further out, which made it tough.

“I just wanted to get it on target, but I was well overdue a goal, so to get it at home to Forest Green is massive.”

While there may be much debate over whether the goal was Doe’s most significant for Daggers, there is also likely to be a similar amount over whether it was the Essex club’s best display of the season.

After a few sticky weeks, Daggers looked back to their menacing best against one of their promotion rivals, though did tire as the second half wore on.

Doe, however, believes Daggers were the better side for much of the game and was delighted with the character they showed to go on and win after being pegged back.

“The first half and second half was a good performance against a good side, but we made them look quite average,” he added.

“It’s a great win and the way it came about was massive, especially after the sucker punch of them getting a goal back.”
