Morgan Ferrier admits he was a relieved man when he finally found the net for Dagenham & Redbridge in their 3-1 win at home to Gateshead.

With 10 minutes remaining, the former Boreham Wood man fired Daggers ahead for the second time in the match, with Elliott Romain later adding the third.

However, Ferrier should have been on the scoresheet much earlier after winning the Essex club a penalty at the end of the first half.

The 22-year-old took the spot kick, but dinked his effort on to the bar, with Gateshead later clearing.

In the end, it did not prove costly, and Ferrier says he was delighted to atone for his earlier miss.

“The goal was more a relief than anything. It was an amazing header by Robbo across and I didn’t really know too much about it,” he said.

“It was just instinct to have a flick at it and when I looked up it was in the net. You could see from my celebration it was just a relief.”

As for that penalty, it would likely have sent Daggers into half time leading at Victoria Road.

But with the Essex club still collecting all three points regardless, Ferrier was able to see the funny side afterwards.

“I probably won’t be on penalties for a while!” he added.

“There is a cycle here where if you miss one, you’re taken off duty.

“It’s all for a good cause and if I win one, whoever takes it will hopefully do better than me and score.”
