Pleased With A Point Despite Penalty Shout

Pleased With A Point Despite Penalty Shout

Manager Wayne Burnett has said he was relatively pleased to see Dagenham and Redbridge pick up a point in the game against Bury despite us having a good shout for a penalty when on loan Ade Azeez was brought down by their goalkeeper.

Speaking to London24 following the game Burnett was pleased to see us respond positively to going behind as Luke Norris grabbed us the leveller six minutes after Bury had taken the lead themselves, but he did feel it was very unfortunate that the referee didn't award the penalty shout even though he thought a draw was a fair result.

'The game could've gone either way if I'm being honest. I think we had some chances and they certainly did as well. Probably a draw is a fair result in the end.'

Burnett goes on to say that he felt it was a very good game that was played out well in very difficult weather conditions, and clearly both sides were trying to go for all three points, and he felt we should've had a chance at those with the Azeez incident.

'I thought it was a penalty 100% and I can't understand why it's not been given.'

The gaffer proposes that maybe the referee was swayed by the fact that if he awarded the penalty he would've had no choice but to send him off, but he feels it was only a yellow card incident so that shouldn't have figured - if it did.

'The ball was going slightly away from goal but it's a foul in the box and a penalty, but he hasn't given it so I think he got that one wrong.'

Having already described it as a good game with regard to the weather conditions, the gaffer does admit that the players were certainly leggy at full time and he imagines Bury will have felt their efforts as well, as the weather did complicate things but inspite of that he couldn't fault them for the effort they put in and the way they kept going.

We just now have to follow that through and see where we sit come the end of the campaign.
