Dagenham & Redbridge attacker urges team to use Stevenage win as springboard

Ashley Chambers insists Dagenham & Redbridge must kick on from their 3-1 win at Stevenage which lifted the team off the bottom of League Two heading into the new year.

Chambers scored the opening goal in the 18th minute at Broadhall Way before assisting Joss Labadie for Daggers’ second just over 60 seconds later.

The visitors saw their advantage halved as Boro hit back in the 32nd minute, but Christian Doidge rounded off the scoring eight minutes before half time with Chambers again involved.

Victory enabled Daggers to end a run of four successive losses in the league in perfect fashion and Chambers believes a switch to a 5-3-2 formationa helped make it happen.

“It’s been a long time coming. We turned up at Stevenage with a change of formation and a change in personnel,” said Chambers.

“It’s worked so we’re thankful to be off the bottom, but that’s just the start. We need to carry on now because the job’s not finished.”

Monday’s win was Daggers second win at Broadhall Way this season, having knocked Stevenage out of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy in October.

Chambers was also sublime in that game, setting up Jamie Cureton for the opener in that fixture before getting on the scoresheet himself.

And the attacker is happy to admit that he enjoys playing at Stevenage after his two successful visits this season.

“I said to Frankie Raymond that we’d both like to play here every week because it seems to be a good stomping ground for the pair of us!” added Chambers.

“It’s good to get a goal and a couple of assists, but the main thing for us at the minute is the win and that was vital.”
