Manager Wayne Burnett and first team coach Warren Hackett have both looked back to our first home loss of the season.
Dagenham went down two one to Cheltenham last weekend, which means we have lost our 100% home record and also suffered our first loss in eight games.
It's disappointing for all to see us lose that record, but Burnett told the Official Site that what mattered now is how Dagenham respond to this defeat in our next game.
He also explained that on reflection, he didn't feel Dagenham did enough in the game to win it, although possibly a draw may have a been a fairer reflection for him.
'I don't think we did enough to win, that's solely my fault, I should've changed it sooner rather than wait. I'm the manager and take full responsibility for that. I think they stifled us, they did their homework.'
Burnett says that hindsight is a wonderful thing, but he will take that lesson himself from the game, and having spoken to Mark Yates after the match, the opposition manager said they had been working all week to nullify the threats we had shown in recent games, so Burnett will be looking to put that right next time we meet them.
'Fair play, they came with a game plan and it worked.'
Onto Northampton now this weekend and hopefully a return to running ways.
As for Hackett, he said he had confidence in the team to rally round and bounce back and as we set our standards so high sometimes it's just unfortunately inevitable that we won't also be able to reach them as the season progresses.
But when that happens in a game, what matters then is how quickly we get back to those standards in the next match.
'I know the team will recover from this and it will be back to normal next match.'
The coach also added that if he was totally honest, he thought Cheltenham were good value for their victory as we never really settled into the match, and didn't play how we had intended, but despite all that he was pleased with some of the chances we did create, so he'll more than take that positive out of it.
He also added that Chris Lewington aggravated a back problem he picked up at the tail end of last season in training, so the decision was taken to allow him to rest.
