Burnett Remains Excited By Potential
Manager Wayne Burnett has said he is very excited by the potential that Dagenham and Redbridge are exhibiting at the moment when it comes to our future progress.
Following the two all draw with high flying Morecambe today, that helped keep Dagenham in the middle of the table, Burnett's after match interviews with the press focused on how bright he feels future life will be at the club as he feels drastic improvements from our last campaign can already be seen.
It was probably an unlikely start for many when Dagenham took the game to Morecambe and secured the early lead, and they had to work very hard indeed to get back into the match, before taking the lead themselves, but the Daggers kept going and didn't let their heads drop and we got the reward with Murphy's injury time leveller.
Speaking to the press Burnett said he felt these were exciting times for the club and for the fans as everyone is positive and excited about the changes taking place at the club and our improving form.
'We are a work in progress and it will take a while, but we are getting there and today was another positive step. I am absolutely delighted with the result.'
Morecambe were looking for five wins on the bounce, so that really does put our performance into perspective I think.
'We're a young and relatively inexperienced side, but they never cease to amaze me. They have a wonderful work ethic and never know when to give up and today just showed how hard they work.'
Burnett was also full of praise for the spirit and determination with in the camp, showed by us going until the final whistle to find the equaliser.
Despite his pleasure, Burnett still pointed out that there were still areas of our game that he knows we have to improve on, and they are being worked on in training because he feels this team can improve further in a quite dramatic way, and he never wants them to stop learning - pointing specifically to the fact that both goals came from set pieces and he knows we need to deal with them far better than we are at the moment.
