Daggers kept out the Ammies, who played most of the game with 10 men

Dagenham & Redbridge manager Peter Taylor was pleased to see his side claim a first Vanarama National League clean sheet of the season at the eighth attempt after holding Salford City to a goalless draw.

The Essex club kept the big-spending Ammies at bay, though the visitors did play for most of the game with 10 men after Danny Lloyd collected a second booking late in the first half.

Daggers had to ride their luck at times to keep City out, with Adam Rooney seeing a goal in the first half ruled out for offside.

But Taylor was nonetheless thrilled to record a first clean sheet of the season, knowing how much it will mean for the defence.

“I’m pleased for the players to get a clean sheet because they worked hard for it,” he said.

“It was a big test against 10 men because Salford have some very good players who can get goals and cause you problems.

As for the performance, Taylor was also happy to see his side recover from what he felt was a sluggish start.

“I didn’t think we started very well. We started nervously, maybe giving Salford too much respect because we know they’re a decent team and a strong team,” he said.

“I thought after 15-20 minutes, we started passing the ball and believing we could do something. I was quite happy with that.

“I know they had a man sent off and that does help you at times, but there’s also many a time where that doesn’t help you.
