Daggers defender disappointed after they conceded another late goal

Dagenham & Redbridge defender Scott Doe admitted they would have taken a point before the game against Wycombe Wanderers but were ultimately left disappointed after conceding seven minutes from time at Adams Park.

Jamie Cureton’s sixth goal since joining the club in the summer put Wayne Burnett’s side on course for victory.

However Peter Murphy headed home the equaliser in the 83rd minute to give both sides a share of the spoils.

Doe was pleased with their second half display and also insisted the players should be taking the blame for the recent poor form, not the manager.

He said: “Everyone is gutted, I’m not going to lie we really are, because we have obviously led the game for the last 20 minutes or whatever it was.

“We would have (taken a point before the game) but we know what we are capable of when we are on it and we have had them watched.

“They were top of the league for a reason but we knew they didn’t get the ball down and started playing, they are quite direct.

“We thought we could match them and use our quality up front and it was close to coming off.

“I know people are on the manager’s back but it is us as well, we need to do better and I think we showed that we can do better and it was a decent performance, mainly second half.”

Daggers certainly looked more solid against Wycombe on Saturday than they have done in previous weeks.

That was the key word for Doe but he was frustrated that referee Simon Matthieson awarded a free kick against Matt Partridge in the lead up to the equalising goal.

“We were against a little bit of a wind in the first half so there was a lot of headers but we knew it was coming,” said the experienced defender.

“I think that is the key word, it was a lot more solid all round.

“Defensively we were a lot more solid and obviously we can get better but it was a lot more solid.

“We have conceded that goal and we will look at it but at the end of the day it comes from a free kick that is never a free kick, never in a million years.

“It should have been our throw so that has also killed us but sometimes when you are down the table you don’t get those decisions.”
