Dagenham & Redbridge boss Wayne Burnett was full of praise for his opposite number on Friday night, Paul Tisdale, after the Exeter City boss tinkered with his side at Victoria Road to earn a 2-1 win.

The hosts had came in at the break with a deserved lead through Jamie Cureton’s 10th minute opener, however the Grecians piled on the pressure during the second period and eventually got their reward when Jimmy Keohand converted from the penalty spot with nine minutes remaining.

And then in the fourth minute of injury time, Arron Davies headed into the top corner to consign Daggers to a defeat.

Burnett praised the visitors after the game, stating: “I thought a draw was a fair result but it wasn’t meant to be and they have managed to nick one at the end.

“We have played very well first half and caused them a lot of problems but they have come out for the second half a different team.

“They have changed their system and fair play to them because they have come out and looked a different team and they have been better than us in the second half.”

Burnett admitted he could see the late goal coming but was just undone by the constant tactical changes made by Exeter boss Tisdale.

“I could feel it coming,” admitted the Daggers manager.

“They changed their shape, so we change our shape, and then they change back and then we change back. It was quite a tactical game but that is what Tis is like.

“He keeps you guessing and I actually enjoy playing against his teams because it is never straight forward. He has come up and he has got it right and we haven’t.”

Luke Howell wasn’t included in the match day squad and it was confirmed by Burnett afterwards that the midfielder would be facing a spell on the sidelines with a hernia operation scheduled for Monday.

The player felt the injury against York last weekend and the Daggers boss admits Howell will be a big loss, adding: “It is a blow but that is why we have a squad so we have to get on with it.

“Luke has done excellently, he drives the team forward and is a goalscorer but it gives someone else an opportunity now to come in.

“He could possibly be out for four weeks, we hope. We will see how quickly he heals. I think he is a quick healer so hopefully he can get back quickly.”
