Still content despite Swindon defeat

Dagenham & Redbridge’s manager John Still had no complaints after his side’s 4-0 defeat at Swindon

Boss John Still had no complaints with Daggers’ effort, despite their 4-0 defeat to Swindon Town on Tuesday.

After Billy Bodin had edged Swindon in front, the Football League’s bottom club had to play the League Two leaders for almost an hour with 10 men when lone striker Josh Scott was sent off.

Daggers faced an uphill task from that moment on and goals from Joe Devera, Luke Rooney and former favourite Paul Benson completed the rout.

“We’re away from home against a team top of the league and we’ve lost with 10 men, I’ve got no complaints,” said Still.

“Attacking wise we tried to be positive and go 4-3-2 (after Scott’s red card). Scott Doe made a mistake for the last goal, but it was the only mistake we’ve made.

“Jonathan Bond wasn’t flying around his goal, we’ve kept our discipline for a long spell in the game.”
