Daggers boss knows team allowed Cards back into match
Dagenham & Redbridge boss John Still admits the Essex club made life difficult for themselves after half-time during their 3-1 win over Woking.
Daggers raced into a 3-0 lead inside 19 minutes following goals from Craig Robson, Jordan Maguire-Drew and Fejiri Okenabirhie.
However, the Victoria Road side found the going tougher after the break, with Anthony Edgar netting for the Cards,
Thankfully Daggers were able to hold on for a fourth win in a row, but Still knows it should have been far more comfortable than it was.
“We said at half time it was going to be different. The wind wasn’t in our favour, it swirled and the ball was running away. We said at half time we had to be efficient and that we were absolutely brilliant in the first half, but we gave them a goal too early.”
Paul Benson made his first start for Daggers since rejoining for a second spell, coming in for the injured Oliver Hawkins.
And Still hopes that his tall striker is back soon with Benson still getting his fitness back to optimum levels.
“Oliver has hurt his back. We weren’t sure if Paul was ready to play 90 minutes, but he did all right. I would have brought Chirs on if I felt I had to put him down the middle, but I wanted to try and get ‘Benno’ 90 minutes if I could.”
