Burnett Delighted With Goal Threat

Burnett Delighted With Goal Threat

Manager Wayne Burnett has said he's been delighted with the goal threat posed by Dagenham and Redbridge this season and he's given a few more thoughts following the Rochdale victory.

Speaking to the Official Site Burnett again described the result as being excellent and he said overall he felt we played okay on the day, and again credited Keith Hill's boys as being the best opposition we had faced so far this season.

'They played with fluidity, fluency, and a tempo and we found it difficult to come to terms with at time.'

Despite admitting that he knew what kind of test they would pose for us, they were tricky on the day as not only did they keep possession as we expected them to, they also tinkered with the formation to put the blocks on us for a period, but thankfully we managed to overcome that by the end of the game and to 'beat the league leaders 3-1 is a fantastic result.'

'I can't praise my players enough, against all the odds they've done brilliant. Let's not forget, we're bookies favourites to go down. I know they aren't always right and our budget isn't up there with the big boys and the team are surpassing expectations and to be where we are is fantastic.'

Eighth place in the league and only one point off the Play Off positions at the moment is certainly an unexpected bonus given last season and where people probably expected us to be after these games this season, but that just shows what Burnett has pointed to before when it comes to the spirit within the camp and the belief that these players have.

In other news our upcoming FA Cup first round clash against Bristol City at Ashton Gate has now been set for November 9th and it will kick off at 3pm.

Given that both Bristol sides are at home at this stage of the cup competition, the Police staged a coin toss to decide which club played on which day, and City won that toss - hopefully they won't win the tie.

This will be the first time the Daggers have faced off against the club in any competition.
