Manager Wayne Burnett has said that Dagenham go into the game against Exeter full of confidence following our thumping 4-1 victory midweek.
It's been a steadyish start to the campaign with five points from the opening five fixtures, but a lot of confidence can be taken from the 4-1 demolition of Colchester midweek in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and although Burnett knows Exeter are a decent team who have started reasonably well themselves, he'd like to make our home ground a fortress so we can really capitalise on matches and give ourselves a bedrock in the league to build from.
Speaking to the Official Site with a brief look back to the Colchester game, Burnett said it was pleasing for him to see the likes of Obafemi and Conners come into the game and perform well because that helps our overall options and gives us some good competition.
'It'd be nice to make the home ground a fortress, and we have to capitalise on this, they're (Exeter) a decent side and they've started well. We should go in with confidence as we are unbeaten at home, teams should come here and find it very difficult.'
Another boost from the Colchester game was the return of Saunders to the pitch as a substitute in the second half, as Burnett describes him as a 'wonderful footballer' but he still needs minutes to get properly match fit and sharp before making his starting return, but if games keep going for us like that then it gives the manager freedom to introduce him at the end so he can ease back in nicely and not overdo things.
The official man of the match from the Colchester was Zavon Hines, who himself admitted that he didn't believe he performed that well in the first half and he was determined to improve on that in the second and that's what he went and did and everybody was pleased with how the squad responded at half time because they wanted the victory for the fans following the disappointment against Mansfield.
