Dagenham & Redbridge defender Scott Doe admits he was ‘gutted’ to suffer an injury during their National League meeting with Eastleigh at the weekend.

The experienced Doe was forced off in the first half of the 2-2 draw, after Corey Whitely had given the visitors the lead on the south coast.

And he is now facing an anxious wait to learn the extent of the damage suffered to his shoulder in the unfortunate incident.

He said: “They had a cross and I went to head it and Mark (Cousins) went to punch it and as he came down, he elbowed my shoulder and put his whole weight on it.

“When I landed I landed on the shoulder as well. I thought it might just be muscular, like a dead leg or dead arm, but after five or 10 minutes it was getting worse.

“I was gutted as I’d just come back. I’ve got to go for an x-ray to rule out bone damage and determine if I need a scan as well for ligament damage.

“I wasn’t sure if I’d put the shoulder out when I landed. I fell on the other side last year and had an injection in that. I’ve been in agony. It’s really sore and I’ve barely slept.”

Daggers fell behind after Doe’s early enforced exit, as Ben Williamson struck twice for the home side before half time.

But Whitely hit back with his second goal of the game to ensure honours finished even, stretching Daggers’ unbeaten start to the season to three matches going into Tuesday’s home meeting with Ebbsfleet United.

Doe added: “I’d just come back from a groin op and I felt good, even though I’d not had a reserve game. Everything was going well.

“I was gutted. I was trying my hardest, but I knew I’d have to come off. I wanted to get to half time, hoping it would stay at 1-0, but I couldn’t get through it.”

As for being forced to watch on from the sidelines as his team-mates battled to a point, Doe added: “I’ve not seen the goals back yet, but I thought the first goal was offside and of course the second was a penalty.

“The goals we’ve conceded this season have been down to individual errors and we’ve got to stamp it out.

“THe performances are still good and we’re scoring goals, but it’s a shame how we threw away the lead so quickly.”
