Daggers suffered 2-1 defeat at home to Maidstone United on Tuesday

Gavin Hoyte has urged Dagenham & Redbridge to right the wrongs of their midweek defeat when they host Maidenhead United in the Vanarama National League on Saturday.

Daggers went down 2-1 at home to Maidstone United on Tuesday night, with Elliott Romain netting for the hosts.

Former Daggers loanee Blair Turgott bagged a brace for Stones in that game, though the Essex club will know both goals conceded were avoidable.

Despite the defeat, Peter Taylor’s men finished that game strongly and Hoyte says that they are looking to take that into the clash with the Magpies.

“Everyone is still confident and no one has put their head down. It’s still only the start of the season and we’re still gelling together,” said the 28-year-old.

“Everyone is confident and still in high spirits even though we lost on Tuesday, but it’s a good thing that we’ve got the game on Saturday to make amends.”

Hoyte rejoined Daggers for a second spell in the summer after spending the past four years away from Victoria Road.

The full-back first joined Daggers as a 22-year-old in 2012, still developing as a footballer.

But now back with the Essex club, Hoyte is one the Daggers’ most experienced players and he hopes to use that to the team’s advantage this term.

“I spoke to Peter and when he told me what was happening. Dagenham is close to home for me and I wanted to move back home, so it was a perfect opportunity for me to join,” he added.

“Because I’ve been in the game for many years, all of the younger players are looking up to me, so I have to be that bit more vocal and hopefully I can help the team.”

One of those youngsters Hoyte is passing on his knowledge to is teenage left-back Liam Gordon.

The pair seem to have struck up a close bond both on and off the pitch over the summer, and Hoyte is keen to aid his younger teammate in any way he can.

“I want to try to help the younger players as much as I can,” he said.

“If they come to me with something, I want to help them and I’m still learning as well.”
