Dagenham & Redbridge defender Scott Doe was disappointed after Tuesday night’s defeat to Leyton Orient in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and felt the Victoria Road outfit deserved more from the match.

The experienced defender made his first start since August 30 and was impressed with their performance in the 2-0 loss.

Doe was frustrated, however, that Daggers weren’t able to score when on top against the League One side and admitted Jay Simpson’s second goal of the game was the killer.

“It wasn’t the right result but it was a good test,” said the 25-year-old

“They are in a higher league than us so you don’t need to give them a one-goal head start but I thought we reacted well to that and in the second half we were on top.

“It was kind of like we were breaking the door down and I did think we were going to score but obviously they got the second and it killed us off.

“I don’t think we have come out of the match with any disgrace at all. We have lost the game and we are frustrated because we genuinely think we didn’t deserve to lose.

“But we’ve probably played a team that has got one of the biggest budgets in their league. They have got some very good players, some very well paid players, but we matched them.”

Daggers best opportunity in the match came four minutes before half time when Doe flicked Billy Bingham’s corner towards goal but unfortunately for the hosts, Orient skipper Nathan Clarke was on the line to clear,

He admitted: “I was hoping it was going to creep in.

“We were saying that we looked like scoring from a set piece and obviously I had that chance. I flicked it but luckily for them they had someone on the back stick.”

Although Doe played the full 90 minutes against Orient, it looked like the defender was going to be forced off early on the game after clashing knees with Orient striker Shaun Batt.

The defender added: “We clashed knees when we were both running at pace.

“It was one of them for a few minutes where I was trying to run it off and it wasn’t going anywhere.

“I thought once the ball is gone, I can try and go down and try to delay a bit more time and get the physio on and see it go away and luckily by the time the physio had come on it had gone.”
