Forward hoping to use Cheltenham point as a springboard

Daggers forward Jamie Cureton believes the club must use the point they picked up at Cheltenham last weekend to start another unbeaten run.

Cureton struck at Whaddon Park to put Wayne Burnett’s side ahead but they conceded three minutes from time to only draw 1-1 last Saturday.

The result stopped a rot of three consecutive defeats, though, and the 39-year-old is targeting wins in their next two home fixtures against York City and Exeter to get some momentum back at the club.

With York visiting Victoria Road on Saturday, Cureton hopes they can start making their home ground a fortress and kick on.

“We need to try and capitalise on the Cheltenham point and go into the two home games and take maximum points,” said the Daggers forward.

“Hopefully now I can kick on again and get a few more goals.

“The home form has not been good at all so we need to turn it around at some point and why not (on Saturday), especially with two on the trot.”

Daggers had two consecutive home fixtures at the start of the month but they were disappointingly beaten by Northampton Town and Cambridge United.

Before those matches the club were three unbeaten, and Cureton believes they need to try and get on another good run of form.

He added: “We had two home games last time and I thought it was quite important to try and win them and we didn’t.

“Now we have two home games and it is important we try and take maximum points if we want to start moving up the table and start putting another run together. Hopefully we can do that and stay unbeaten.

“If we win the next one against York it will be a couple unbeaten and you then start to climb the table a bit and momentum starts to come with you, confidence as well, and hopefully we can start to move on.

“Month on month we have to try and get as many points on the board as possible and just keep ticking along.”
