Dagenham & Redbridge assistant manager Warren Hackett was delighted with the quality they showed during yesterday’s 3-2 win at Tranmere Rovers.

Jamie Cureton, Ashley Hemmings and Billy Bingham all scored goals worthy of winning goal of the month in March at Prenton Park.

Although the hosts scored late on and missed an excellent chance deep into stoppage time, Wayne Burnett’s team were well worth their victory.

The away success takes them up to 16th in the League Two table and nine points off the relegation places.

“It was an important win. Tranmere are in and around us and we need to beat the teams in and around us,” said Hackett.

“There was some nice goals scored. Jamie Cureton has scored a textbook Jamie Cureton goal where he gets on the wrong side of the defenders and he is very calm and pops it over the goalkeeper.

“Ashley comes inside on his left foot and it is another great goal and Billy Bingham scored a great goal on Tuesday and he has backed it up again.

“Tranmere came to us earlier in the season when we were near the bottom and they came and beat us 1-0.

“It was a last minute goal, a great strike and we felt unfortunate that we got beat and whether they feel the same I don’t know but it was important we come here and got a result.”

Daggers passing, especially in the first half, impressed Hackett and he hailed the central midfielder duo.

He also conceded Burnett’s team dropped a little bit too deep during the latter exchanges, but was pleased overall.

Hackett added: “We needed to be very organised and very strong and we was for long parts of the game.

“I think for the last 15 minutes we maybe sat 5 or 10 yards deeper than we normally would because we had something to protect and once Tranmere got a goal they were always going to come at us again.

“The work did come from the middle of the park, but most importantly it was how they passed the football in the first half. Billy Bingham and Andre Boucaud passed it fantastically well and that enabled us to get those attacks and get those chances.”
