Daggers were held to a 1-1 draw by Magpies in National League
Dagenham & Redbridge manager John Still felt his team were the better side in their 1-1 draw at Maidenhead United in the National League.
Daggers fell behind in the 39th minute at York Road when Remy Clerima headed home Sam Barratt’s long throw-in.
However, the Essex club were level 10 minutes into the second half when Michael Cheek found the target.
The Victoria Road side pushed for a winner late on, but were unable to find one, leaving their boss to reflect on a draw, rather than a victory.
“I’m not disappointed with a point, although they scored with probably their only effort which was a deflection,” Still told the Maidenhead Advertiser.
“The second half I thought we had the ascendancy, got the goal and it was a case of ‘can we get the other one?’
“But we became victims of our own superiority as they were defending so deep there wasn’t a lot of space.”
