Dagenham & Redbridge will look to end their four-game losing streak when they welcome high-flying Wrexham on Non-League Day this weekend.

Daggers host the fourth-placed Dragons at Victoria Road on Saturday and boss Peter Taylor says they must start sticking together to get results.

The 65-year-old says he understands fans’ frustration but feels his squad are working hard and it will come if they work on their decision-making.

“They’ve got to stick together that’s for certain,” Taylor said.

“There were a few supporters that were a little unhappy and I get that as you get a little frustrated when you come a long way and it cost you some very important money and then you see the team not performing well.

“I don’t think they did see that for 10 minutes, I think they would have been very pleased with that.

“I cannot criticise our players’ attitude and work rate, it’s some of the decision-making that is poor, but that’s not deliberate.”

Former Leicester City boss Taylor feels experience on the pitch could be crucial and believes the likes of Ben Nunn, Liam Bellamy and Jack Munns could be key ingredients after all featured in their 2-0 defeat to Gateshead on the weekend.

“It’s a plus to have Ben Nunn back. I think Liam Bellamy was a plus getting a few more minutes and I think Jack Munns was a plus when he came on. I thought he got involved.

“We need more experience on the park. Ben Nunn I thought did really well for his first game, he’s a good leader and we need his type around.”

Tyalor also revealed left-back Liam Gordon was rested for the Gateshead clash as he felt the youngster needed it, but is hopeful of him reacting well in training ahead of this weekend’s clash.

“Not an injury, I just felt he needed a little rest, he’s a young boy and he’s had to play every game this year,” added Taylor.

“We missed his left foot, but he needed a rest. It’s alright saying now ‘why did you rest him?’ but there has been other times when we’ve had to be a bit careful with him when it comes to decision making.

“I think the rest will have done him good, we’ll see how he reacts in the week.”

Daggers face a tough few weeks as they also play host to Harrogate after their FA Cup tie at Boreham Wood on October, 20, which may be a good chance to inject the new faces into the line-up.
