Daggers assistant happy team put in improved display after disappointment at Chester
Dagenham & Redbridge assistant manager Darren Currie was pleased the team recovered from their loss at Chester on Tuesday to beat Guiseley 2-0.
The Victoria Road club were poor at the Deva Stadium in midweek, but banished those thoughts with a goal for Chris Assombalonga in the sixth minute.
Oliver Hawkins added a second midway through the second half, but in truth Daggers could have won by more.
And Currie was pleased the team were able to respond in fine form at Nethermoor Park following their disappointing display in their previous game.
“It was mentioned, the lacklustre performance we offered on Tuesday,” said Currie.
“We’re talking about a reaction, doing what we’ve been doing over pre-season and in the first game against Southport.
“We got straight back on the horse after a disappointing night at Chester.
“We’ve come away to a difficult place, we were very efficient and deserved winners.”
Indeed Assombalonga’s goal got Daggers off to the perfect start as he registered his first for the club.
Fejiri Okenabirhie delivered a pinpoint cross from the left wing which Assombalonga headed home.
And Currie was pleased the duo were able to link up well so early to Daggers’ benefit.
“From our point of view, it’s something we’ve been working on and it’s perfect that you’ve ‘Hawks’ as your focal point down the middle of the pitch and the two pacy boys either side of him,” added Currie.
“One crosses for the other to head it in – it’s perfect attacking play.
“Hawks was good again, Fey was outstanding and Chrissy worked his socks off and rightly got his goal. The front three deserve a lot of credit.”
