Defender felt the response to going a goal behind early in the game was key

Scott Doe admitted when Carlisle United opened the scoring during Saturday’s match at Victoria Road, the Dagenham & Redbridge defender thought ‘not again’.

The hosts were on a seven-match streak without a win and despite starting well found themselves trailing the Cumbrians after Derek Asamoah’s 16th minute strike.

But the 24-year-old felt Daggers reaction to going a goal down was the best he has seen and he hailed the performance, as well as the new formation implemented by Wayne Burnett.

Doe lined up alongside Brian Saah and Ayo Obileye in a three-man defence and it worked excellently.

“It goes through your head ‘not again’, it really does,” admitted the experienced defender when asked about going behind so early on.

“But we have tried a new formation against Carlisle and it has worked out.

“We were a bit open for that first goal we conceded but I actually think when they went 1-0 up it was a spark for us.

“We needed to get back into the game quickly and that is actually the best I have ever seen us react from going a goal down.

“It would have been easy to crumble with how results and things have gone against us, but the two goals quickly gave us momentum and the boys were buzzing with that.”

Relief was the emotion all around Victoria Road after the victory on Saturday and Doe felt the performance was brilliant.

He insisted the winning margin could have been even more on another day.

“Relieved is the word,” added Doe.

“It is a massive win and at home as well, we needed it badly.

“I think everything about the performance was brilliant. The desire, the lads playing for the staff, playing for themselves and it was much needed.

“We knew it would be a tough game and on another day we could have probably scored six or seven so it is a good thing.

“Fans, staff, players and everyone is going to be buzzing about this result and we need to kick on.”

If Jamie Cureton had converted his penalty in the 53rd minute Daggers could have gone on and handed out a thrashing to Carlisle.

However, Danny Grainger’s curled in a stunning free kick a minute after Cureton’s spot kick hit the crossbar and Doe admitted he was cursing the experienced forward for a short period of time.

He added: “I would have backed him to score all day and I am not going to lie I was cursing him after that!

“They go up the other end and get a free kick, which was an unbelievable free kick in fairness to the lad.

“So there was a bit of nerves for a minute but we held out.”
