Burnett disagreed with his sending off

Dagenham & Redbridge boss Wayne Burnett admitted he was a little disappointed not to take all three points off Wycombe Wanderers yesterday but was pleased they ended their run of two consecutive defeats.

Jamie Cureton put Daggers ahead in the 63rd minute but his tap-in was cancelled out by Peter Murphy’s header late in the game.

The performance of his side pleased the Victoria Road boss and he was pleased with the way they battled with the chairboys.

A very gritty performance from us,” said Burnett.

“We worked incredibly hard and were probably a little bit unfortunate to only come away with a point.

“We have been on a tough run. Our results haven’t been great and it was important that we come here and got something.

“We haven’t played great and we knew it would be a battle. Wycombe have fantastic momentum and I think they have only been beaten once in their last 11 games so on reflection it is probably a decent result.”

Daggers manager was sent away from the touchline in the dying moments of the game for displaying his frustration by kicking the ball away.

He felt the decision was harsh but just conceded his emotions got the better of him.

“Sometimes your emotions get the better of you,” said the Victoria Road boss.

“I was frustrated that he had given a foul for their goal, frustrated that he hadn’t given a foul for Ade and my emotions just got the better of me I guess.

“It does happen but I think it was a bit harsh. I don’t think it warranted me being sent away but he has made a decision and I have to accept.”

Burnett also spoke about the pressure that has circulated recently with Daggers inconsistent start to the season.

He added: “Pressure is not being able to feed your kids and pay your mortgage, that is pressure.

“I have a wonderful job that I love doing and I am very fortunate to have a job where I get up in the morning and I love coming to work.

“The expectation has increased because we had a fantastic finish last year but those decisions about pressure and those decisions about me are out of my hands so I just get on with doing the absolute best I can do.”
