Daggers frontman scored winner against Silkmen, his first goal since September 2

Dagenham & Redbridge forward Morgan Ferrier was happy to end an eight-game goal drought with the winner in a 1-0 success for the Essex club over Macclesfield Town in the National League, but says his displays are more important to the team.

The former Boreham Wood man had not scored since netting on September 2, but showed great composure to hit home in the 50th minute against the Silkmen.

It was a fifth goal of the season for the England C international, but while he admits he was relieved to end his wait for a goal, he knows it is more important that he carries out his duties for the side.

“It was nice to get a goal. I’d been talking with the coaches and they said to carry on putting in the performances I had been and carry on working hard,” said the 22-year-old.

“Most importantly, I have to do a job for the team, so once I do my job for the team, my goals will come.

“The goals come secondly, so as long as we’re doing well, it’s not really about me.”

As well as ending his wait for a goal, Ferrier’s strike against Macclesfield saw Daggers snap a five-game winless run in all competitions.

Prior to the victory over Town, John Still’s men had not triumphed since beating struggling Torquay United at home on September 30.

That run of form had threatened to derail their promotion bid this term, and Ferrier was thrilled to help the Victoria Road outfit return to winning ways.

“It’s an unbelievable feeling to win again. We’d been on a bit of a poor run, but we always knew with the quality we have in this team, it was only a matter of time before we won again,” he added.

“We were creating loads of chances in every game and they weren’t going in for us, but luckily one went in for us against Macclesfield.

“We’re over the moon to beat the team who were top, and they’d been on a good run too, so the win shows how good we are as a team.”

Ferrier’s goal came about after the attacker pounced on a moment of indecision in the Macclesfield defence, rounding keeper Sam Ramsbottom before scoring after the Silkmen stopper hesitated in coming for a ball.

Charlee Adams was responsible for the assist, passing the ball from deep to play Ferrier in.

And the frontman says he is always happy to make runs when the ex-Birmingham City midfielder is in possession, knowing Adams has the talent to find him.

“Charlee has got unbelievable quality, so when I saw he had the ball at his feet, I saw the space in behind and thought I’d get on my bike,” said Ferrier.

“Luckily he slipped me in and the goalie made my mind up for me and it went in.”
