Wayne Burnett delighted with three points over York City

Dagenham & Redbridge boss Wayne Burnett was delighted to return to winning ways at Victoria Road and praised their “workmanlike” performance as they defeated York 2-0 following two goals from Joss Labadie.

Labadie’s first two goals for the club, one in either half, ensured Daggers jumped two places in the League Two table up to 19th after their second home victory of the season.

Burnett felt Daggers weren’t as good as they can be but was pleased they were able to put in a professional performance to grind out the three points.

“I wouldn’t say we have played great but it was a very professional performance and I am delighted that we have managed to get the three points,” said Burnett.

“Everyone knows our home form hasn’t been great but we have managed to get a win.

“The boys have put a very workmanlike and professional performance in and we have got our rewards.

“You can’t play great every week and we haven’t played particularly great but we have played ok and I am pleased with that.”

Burnett was thrilled that they were able to get a clean sheet, only their third of the season and first since August 23 - also the last time they won at home.

He also discussed the change in tactics that saw Andre Boucaud return following his suspension and Daggers line up with a diamond in midfield.

Burnett added: “We played a slightly different formation and we wanted to try and compact the midfield.

“We got Boucs back in the team and we thought that was the best way to go forward.

“Our back four was good as well and the most pleasing thing for me today was that we kept a clean sheet.

“We haven’t kept one of those for a while and certainly not at home so reall, really pleased about that.”
