Dagenham & Redbridge first-team coach Darren Currie praised the players and manager Wayne Burnett after the weekend victory against Carlisle United.

The Victoria Road club came into the game in bad form and following a disappointing FA Cup exit to Conference Premier Southport midweek.

A lot of criticism had come the way of the Daggers boss in particular, and Currie praised the efforts of everyone at the club following the 4-2 win.

He said: “There has been some serious stick come the players, the staff and certainly the managers way and the lads have been fantastic.

“There has never been any problem from us staff with the boys application and work rate and they have been very behind the manager and rightly so.

“Wayne is a very good manager but individual errors have proved costly this season and against Carlisle there was no individual errors.

“We have gone on and won the game comfortable so everyone is pleased.”

Currie pinpointed the players response to going behind as key to the victory and felt had Jamie Cureton dispatched his spot-kick with Daggers 4-1 up, then the hosts could have added a few more.

“They were brilliant after going 1-0 down and responding with a good goal and then by getting the second straight after that,” he added.

“You could feel the lift in the crowd and with all the players and we have gone on.

“If Curo puts that penalty away and makes it 5-1, the way we were playing, I was confident we could have got one or two more.”

Ashley Chambers scored twice in the win against the Cumbrians and Cureton also scored the third.

The contribution of Ade Yusuff couldn’t be understated either and Currie made a point of praising the trio.

“Chambo has got excellent quality wherever you put him,” Currie said.

“You can play him as a two, or in a three or behind the front two. You can play him up there on his own, he is a very talented footballer.

“Curo, as we know, is terrific. He is a great lad and an inspiration to all the young strikers that he has around him.

“Ade obviously didn’t get himself a goal, but certainly contributed hugely to the outcome of the result.”
