Daggers manager wants side to bring something back from Accrington Stanley

Dagenham & Redbridge will be looking for away success when they make the trip to Accrington Stanley tomorrow (Saturday) with manager Wayne Burnett keen for his side to rediscover their form from last season.

The Victoria Road outfit finished ninth in the League Two standings last year and Burnett believes they must continue with their attacking philosophy if they are to get out of their current rut.

Daggers were beaten 2-1 by Exeter last Friday and were knocked out of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy on Tuesday following a 2-0 defeat to League One Leyton Orient.

Despite those two home defeats in the past week, they will visit the Crown Ground tomorrow confident of achieving a positive result.

“They are all very tough games,” said Burnett.

“It is fine margins, but we will go there, like we do in every game, and we will go there to win.

“We will be attacking and sometimes we are a little bit too attacking. But that is the way we play. That is how I want us to play and that is what brought us success last year.”

Although Stanley have great momentum since the return of John Coleman as manager, Burnett admits his side must start picking up points soon.

He also feels Stanley’s style of play might have changed now they are under new management.

Burnett added: “They have a new manager and he has brought in a different impetus for them.

“They have got a bit of momentum and they are on the up a bit so it will be tough, but they are all tough.

“We have never had an easy game there, we have always had tough games so it won’t be any different to previous matches.

“Stanley’s style of play could have possibly changed, but I think they will still try to play a little bit so it will be a decent game.

“We need to (start picking up points). Our home form hasn’t been great and our away form needs to get better.”
