Jordan Maguire-Drew says assists carry the same weight as a goal for him after setting up both Dagenham & Redbridge efforts in a 2-0 win at York City.

The on-loan Brighton & Hove Albion winger crossed for Oliver Hawkins to head in a 28th-minute opener at Bootham Crescent, before flicking to ball into Luke Guttridge’s path for the second on the stroke of half-time.

It was a welcome return to form for the young winger, who appeared to be struggling with the amount of games he was playing in recent weeks, and the teenager says he is more than happy to be the team’s main creator.

“Two assists, I count them as good as a goal if I’m honest,” said the young winger.

“The first one I chopped inside and saw Hawks peel off, so I whipped it to the back stick for him and the big man done his job.

“Gutts called for the second, so I chipped it over the defender’s head and he did his job as well.”

Maguire-Drew himself came close to a goal in the closing moments of the match, with only the fingertips of York stopper Scott Flinders denying him a curling effort from long range.

It would have been a first goal for the on-loan Seagulls forward since the 3-1 win at Bromley at the end of September, but Maguire-Drew was full of praise for Flinders’ display.

“Credit to York and to their keeper, he kept them in it at times and it could have been three or four nil, but he did really well,” he added.

Victory at Bootham Crescent was the perfect tonic for Daggers after a difficult week having suffered their worst loss in four-and-a-half years before going out of the FA Cup.

And Maguire-Drew knows the result at York was all important, especially after a good result for the Minstermen a week prior.

“It was a good win and a good team performance,” he said. “York are a tough team and drew away at Eastleigh last week so we knew it was going to be a tough place to come, but the boys dug in well and we got the three points that we needed.”
