Daggers boss conceded League One side had too much quality for his team in Johnstone’s Paint Trophy defeat

Dagenham & Redbridge boss Wayne Burnett felt Jay Simpson’s second goal was decisive in yesterday’s loss to Leyton Orient in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy second round, but also pointed out the difference in quality of the two squads.

The Victoria Road outfit suffered a 2-0 home defeat to exit the competition after O’s forward Simpson scored in each half to send Kevin Nugent’s team through.

Daggers boss believed his side were just starting to cause the League One team problems when the second goal was scored in the 69th minute.

He also looked at the strength of O’s squad with Nugent bringing in two experienced forwards in Simpson and Darius Henderson for the match, whilst Burnett picked two youngster Ade Yusuff and Christian Doidge - both of whom are playing for the first time in the Football League this season.

“We caused our own problems with four and a half minutes gone. We play a silly straight ball and it gets cut out and we are 1-0 down,” said the Daggers boss.

“But I felt at 1-0 we were slightly getting back into the game a little and then I felt we had a foul on the edge of the box (not given).

“And they have gone up the other end, got a corner and scored and that is fine margins isn’t it?

“The second goal killed us, we were having a go and it was difficult in the second half when they have scored the second.”

Doidge and Yusuff were both handed full debuts against the League One outfit and though the duo struggled against Orient’s experienced defence, Burnett believed they both gave a good account of themselves.

He also discussed in detail the difference in quality of the two east London teams, adding: “We have come up against players that were slightly too good for us on the night.

“But you look at Simpson, and you look at Henderson and you look at the players they have and we have a player that started who came from Chatham Town, a player that come from Carmarthen Town.

“And I am not making excuses because I would like to have those Orient players but we haven’t and we are what we are.

“(Doidge and Yusuff) were playing against a back four that has played in League One and got into the play-offs.

“But I thought they gave a good account of themselves.”

Burnett gave Billy Bingham a first start of the campaign and praised the experienced midfielder.

He added: “Billy hasn’t played and he needs matches. We thought it was an opportunity to give him a game and he came back in and did very well.”
