Daggers assistant hails Wimbledon worthy winners
Dagenham & Redbridge assistant manager Wayne Burnett conceded his side had been second best in Saturday’s home match with AFC Wimbledon.
Both teams packed the centre of midfield and cancelled each other out for long periods, but a goal in each half was enough for the visitors to earn their first victory of the season.
And Burnett was disappointed with the lack of clear cut chances Daggers created throughout the 90 minutes and felt the Dons were worthy winners.
“I thought we started very well in the first 20 minutes, I thought it was quite an open game, but overall we didn’t do enough today and I thought we were beaten by a better team,” he said.
“They’ve scored in the first half and goals do change games. Had we scored first we’d have certainly been in the ascendancy, but they’ve scored and then the guy’s got a wonder-goal in the second half. “When you’re two goals up, games can look and become a little bit easy, we were chasing the game and getting bodies forward and leaving gaps.

“The manager has said we need to get crosses in the box, because that’s where we’re going to score goals and he’s 100 per cent right. The majority of our goals over the season come from crosses, we didn’t get our crosses into the box on Saturday and we need to start doing so.”
