Dagenham & Redbridge new boy Shamir Mullings is setting the bar high with his aims for the campaign after getting off the mark on his debut in the 3-1 loss to Ebbsfleet United at the weekend.

The 24-year-old striker is keen to impress Daggers supporters and prove his abilities to everyone by getting on the scoresheet to help the club climb the National League table.

The former Forest Green Rovers man joined on loan t the end of last week from league rivals Maidstone United where he made 12 appearances this season and found the net twice.

Mullings went straight into Peter Taylor’s starting line-up a day later, finding the net in the 42nd minute, but Danny Kedwell netted a brace after Chris Bush scored early on to seal the points for Fleet at Victoria Road.

“My target is always to score 20 goals a season. I’m on three so far and I’m looking to keep going and try build some momentum,” said Mullings.

“The base of my aim will be to work hard for the team and when I’m playing try to get a goal.”

The Enfield-born forward admitted it was a bitter sweet feeling to net on his debut as Daggers lost the game.

“It’s never nice losing a game, you know we work hard, and I know I only came in yesterday (Friday) but I could tell that everyone works hard so when it comes to a Saturday we can put what the gaffer’s said into it,” he added.

“I’ve got a goal, but we lost the game so it’s a kind of bitter sweet feeling.”

The youngster did reveal he was surprised to go straight into the starting line-up for the match, but was pleased to take on the challenge and praised the early signs of a partnership with the club’s top goalscorer Elliot Romain and even Chike Kandi when he came on at half-time.

“It was very much a surprise but I like the challenge. If he said to me you’re going to come off the bench or you’re going to start, either one I would have been ready for it,” added Mullings.

“Elliot is really good, he runs and he doesn’t stop running, so it’s good to have someone play off of me and get around and I think me and him will do really well together.

“Definitely, the support as I’m a big centre forward is always needed and I think the both of them did really well. Even when Chike came on, he did really well.”
