Still proud of Daggers work ethic
‘Hard work was the key to victory,’ says boss
DAGGERS boss John Still praised the commitment of his players following their victory on Saturday.
Despite often finding themselves under siege in their own penalty area, the visitors were resolute in defence while showing a more clinical nature up front, converting three of their five efforts on target into goals.
“We’ve been trying to impress on the players from the start of the season that, at this level, away from home you’ve got to just dig in and battle like hell,” said Still.
“To be fair I think our away form has been alright. We’ve had good, creditable draws at Charlton and Colchester, but when you’re away from home you’ve got to battle and for the first 10 minutes I don’t think we did.

“After that we did and it was a bit cruel for them to score right at the death (of the first half) but that’s football and we’ve come out in the second half and battled.
“The keeper has made some good saves, but that’s what you have to do away from home.

“I think that we displayed that today which was good and tactically we got it spot on. We made the changes at the right time which I think we needed to do and deserved to win.”
Meanwhile, Yeovil Town chief Terry Skiverton found the result hard to take, given his side’s 13 efforts on goal.
“Since I’ve taken over as manager I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Yeovil team create that many chances,” he said.
“For us not to take that is a joke and then, even if we do score one goal, the other team score three. It’s not good enough.”
