Forward unhappy they failed to win against Wycombe Wanderers

Jamie Cureton revealed Dagenham & Redbridge changed their game plan against Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday but was disappointed it didn’t reward them with three points.

The veteran forward struck in the 63rd minute at Adams Park but Peter Murphy headed past Mark Cousins seven minutes before the end to ensure it finished 1-1 and see the Victoria Road club drop a position to 21st in the League Two table.

Cureton said: “We changed our game plan a little bit and went a little bit more direct.

“We changed our game plan completely from the start of the season. We have been playing 4-3-3 and been playing a lot more football.

“But after the 3-1 loss to Luton the manager come in on Thursday and said we are going to be a bit more direct.

“It takes the option away from players so they haven’t got to take a risk so really for two days (Thursday and Friday) we changed completely from pre-season.”

The 39-year-old felt Daggers were solid against the Chairboys and explained how he has been nursing a hamstring problem recently.

He was unhappy they failed to take three points and admitted it would have been a huge victory.

“I think we were solid and we didn’t give a lot away,” said Cureton.

“We got the goal and were on top. I come off, and I hate doing it, with ten minutes to go and I am sitting there with no impact.

“My hamstring has been a bit tight so we try not to risk it. I hate it because I love being on there and it was just a precaution for next week.

“But we were on top and dealing with what they were throwing at us but the home side keeps coming and unfortunately we have conceded.

“We take 1-1 but we are not happy because when you are 1-0 up with minutes to go you want to see the game out.

“It would have been a massive three points for us because they are league leaders but we have put on a good show and we move on.”
