Dagenham & Redbridge boss Wayne Burnett deeply regrets getting sent to the stands during their 2-1 win at Newport County – but stands by his reasons for the frustration.

Medy Elito’s first half double saw them pick up all three points in Wales on Wednesday, but spent much of the second half on the back foot after Robbie Willmott’s first half stoppage-time free-kick.

Burnett was unhappy about the amount of stoppage time played, after the fourth official had initially held up two minutes.

And though aware that it is only a minimum of two minutes, the Daggers chief still felt very strongly about the timing of the goal.

“I regret getting sent off but I felt very strongly regarding the incident,” said Burnett.

“The fact that the fourth official put up two minutes of injury time and I know that it is only a minimum but the goal was scored on three minutes and 49 seconds.

“The board goes up because nothing is hidden and it’s supposed to give everyone the idea of how long there is. It was a crucial turning point in the game.”

But putting that aside Burnett was pleased with his side’s performance on the road, having spent much of the second half on the back foot.

“It was another good away win,” he added.

“We spent much of the second half defending but we did that well as a team and it helped us pick up the victory.

“We had a few decent couple of chances in the first half apart from the goals with Ade and Luke and in a away it was disappointing that we went into the break only 2-1 up.”
