Daggers keeper calls on team-mates to finish the job

Chris Lewington would like to see Dagenham & Redbridge secure safety at home to Crawley Town on Saturday

Keeper Chris Lewington has assured supporters Daggers will not become complacent in their final three matches of the season as they look to rubber-stamp safety.

Lewington was beaten late on at Aldershot as Daggers were made to settle for a 1-1 draw at the EBB Stadium on Saturday.

Subsequently survival is not yet mathematically assured and with tricky games to come against top four sides Crawley Town and Shrewsbury Town it’s possible the club could face a nervy final day encounter with Bristol Rovers.

But Lewington insists he and his team-mates will be as professional as ever in their quest to claim the elusive point that will seal survival.
