Dagenham & Redbridge boss Wayne Burnett told his team at half time the minimum they must take away from Globe Arena is a point so he was thrilled they picked up all three.

Luke Howell fired them ahead inside the opening minute before Andy Fleming equalised midway through the first half.

But goals from Ayo Obileye and Jamie Cureton during the first seven minutes after the break put the visitors in control.

And despite Jack Redshaw pulling one back in the third minute of stoppage time, they comfortably played out the final seconds to earn an excellent 3-2 victory.

Burnett said: “For 10 or 15 minutes we found it difficult in the first half. I was disappointed with the goal we conceded.

“But we got back into the game and moved the ball around nice at times and it was really pleasing.

“Ashley Hemmings had a fantastic opportunity and if he keeps it low I think he scores, but we came in 1-1 and we talk at half time and say we feel we can get better.

“We felt we were causing our own problems with clearances. We spoke about it and we said the minimum we come away with from this game is a point and we have managed to come away with three.”

Although disappointed to concede in time added on, Burnett was actually happy with the role defender Scott Doe played in the second goal for the hosts.

Redshaw dribbled past Doe on the near touchline before riffling past Mark Cousins to make it 3-2 during four minutes of stoppage time.

But Daggers boss was happy the experienced defender, who has been phenomenal over the past three months, didn’t attempt to make a tackle and potentially give away a penalty – something he has done previously this season.

“I am very disappointed that we conceded, but I was pleased strangely enough that Scott Doe didn’t attempt to tackle him because he is learning,” said Burnett.

“That is progression and I am pleased about that. I am disappointed they scored, but I said to him ‘you didn’t tackle him and give away a penalty so you are learning’.

“I am really pleased about that goal, strangely, if that makes sense, but we come away with a 3-2 win so really pleased.”

It did make sense, and Burnett was also quick to praise the 70 supporters that made the trip to Morecambe yesterday, adding: “I am pleased for the players, for the staff and for the fans that have made the trip.

“They have got up early to come to Morecambe for a 1pm kick-off so really pleased for them.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
