Morgan Ferrier missed a first-half spot kick when scores were level, but Daggers went on to win regardless

Dagenham & Redbridge coach Darren Currie was pleased Morgan Ferrier’s missed penalty did not cost the hosts in a 3-1 win at home to Gateshead.

Academy product Joe White scored the opener for Daggers, before Kevin Lokko turned the ball into his own net to level the scores.

With three minutes left in the half, the Essex club were awarded a penalty when Ferrier was fouled in the box, but missed the subsequent spot kick.

However, the former Boreham Wood man did find the net 10 minutes from time, before Elliott Romain also struck in the win that took Daggers back to the top of the table.

“We were outstanding in big chunks of the game. We had little spells where they are better in possession than us, but didn’t hurt us,” said Currie.

“If you look at the opportunities we’ve had, with the penalty and the chances we created, in the end we’re happy to get the result.”
