Daggers earned first win of season in midweek, but boss warns side against resting on their laurels

Peter Taylor has warned Dagenham & Redbridge not to let their level of performance slip when they visit Barrow in the Vanarama National League on Saturday.

Daggers make the long journey north unbeaten in their last two games in the division — their best run of form this term.

The Essex club have also clambered off the foot of the table having collected four points from their last two games, including earning a first success of the season by beating Braintree Town 1-0 on Tuesday night.

Taylor, though, knows his side must continue to work hard and has cautioned his team about what will happen if they do not do that at Holker Street this weekend.

“Football does give you a kick up the backside if you are a little bit sloppy, so we have to make sure we’re not sloppy,” said the 65-year-old.

“We have to make sure that we have a good journey to Barrow and make sure we’ve very organised.”

As for that win over Braintree on Tuesday night, a late Chike Kandi penalty saw Daggers end their long wait for a victory this term.

The success also represented Taylor’s first triumph in a competitive game since taking the manager’s job at Victoria Road in the summer.

And the Daggers boss was thrilled his players were finally able to experience a win this term.

“I’m really pleased for the players because they’ve worked exceptionally hard and they should have had a winning feeling before Tuesday,” he added.

“They’ve now got it, which is good and they’re going to enjoy that, but we had to work exceptionally hard.

“Braintree were the better team in the first half, but we were the better team in the second half.”
