Daggers midfielder backs team-mates to turn season around
Kevin Maher feels Dagenham & Redbridge have enough quality within the squad to start climbing the table
Kevin Maher believes a lot of hard work and a little bit of luck will bring a much-needed upturn in Daggers fortunes.
The former Southend United skipper made his long-awaited league debut on Saturday, having missed the opening two months of the season with a broken metatarsal.
But his first appearance at the heart of the Daggers midfield ended in disappoint, as Plymouth’s win extended the east Londoner’s miserable run to one win from nine league games.
However, Maher has had ample opportunity to assess his team-mates during his frustrating spell on the sidelines and is certain they have what it takes to mount a charge up the table.

“We’re down because we’re losing games. Everyone is determined to put it right though, I think that’s the main thing and there’s no reason why we can’t.
“We’ve got to keep working hard and keep plugging away, because we need to turn it around sooner rather than later.
“The harder you work the luckier you’ll get and I’m sure that’s what we’ll be doing.”
