Forward frustrated after difficult afternoon against Hartlepool United

Ashley Chambers says the Dagenham & Redbridge frontline will right their wrongs when they visit York City tomorrow night after a frustrating time against Hartlepool United.

Daggers lost their last match at home to Pools 1-0 on Saturday despite creating more chances than the visitors.

The visitors proved more clinical though with Billy Paynter’s 34th-minute header the difference between the two sides although Daggers chances to score both before and after the opener.

And after controlling most of the match, Chambers was disappointed the team are still without a win at Victoria Road this season.

“We’ve lost the game but we dominated large spells and created a lot of chances, half chances,” said the attacker. “Maybe on another day we score two or three goals but it just wasn’t to be.

“We’re still upbeat and thankfully in football there’s always another game around the corner to put things right.”

On a number of occassions, Daggers were just a matter of inches away from finding the back of the net against Pools but either the ball whistled just wide of the posts or a telling touch could not be found.

And while Chambers acknowledges it is frustrating that no Dagenham player could get their name on the scoresheet, he says it would be worse if no chances were being created,

He added: “On another day, two or three could have gone in and we win the game comfortably.

“Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be but the worrying thing would be if we weren’t creating chances.

“The fact is we are so we have to keep doing that and at one point they’ll start going in.”
