Victory moves Daggers up to 21st in league table but Burnett insisted they didn’t do anything different compared to previous home matches
Dagenham & Redbridge manager Wayne Burnett revealed his delight after watching his side ended their poor run of form with a stunning 4-2 victory over Carlisle United at Victoria Road this afternoon.
Ashley Chambers scored twice during the win, with Billy Bingham and Jamie Cureton also finding the net.
It was Daggers first win since October 11, and first at home since they beat York City on September 27.
Burnett felt they outfought the Cumbrians, he said: “We are absolutely delighted with the victory.
“Carlisle have been on a bit of a roll and Keith Curle has galvanised the team.
“We have managed to eventually get a home win but we haven’t done anything different. The players have not worked any harder than usual.
“They have continued to work and continue to battle and the only difference is they didn’t make any individual errors.”
Daggers boss went on to further praise the work rate of his players and felt they showed more fight than Carlisle.
Although they found themselves 4-1 up during the second half, they did get nervy when the visitors pulled one back.
But the Victoria Road outfit professionally played the rest of the game out to secure a massive three points.
“I can’t fault this group of players,” added Burnett.
“They work tirelessly and they continue to work tirelessly. They have never not given me everything.
“Even at 4-2 you can sense they are a little nervy but that is football. We were strong, we were men and we competed today.
“Their assistant manager came over to us and said ‘you outfought us today’ and we did.”
