Dagenham & Redbridge caretaker boss talks up attackers showing and thanks fans for support after Stevenage success

Dagenham & Redbridge caretaker manager Warren Hackett was full of praise for attacker Ashley Chambers after he had a hand in all the visitors’ goals as they won 3-1 at Stevenage.

Chambers opened the scoring with a rare headed goal in the 18th minute before teeing up Joss Labadie for Daggers’ second less than a minute later.

The hosts pulled one back in the 32nd minute when Christian Doidge headed into his own net, but the Welsh striker atoned with a goal in the right net five minutes later after brilliant work by Chambers.

Victory at Broadhall Way ended a run of four successive defeats in the league for Dagenham and lifted them off the bottom of League Two, and Hackett was quick to talk up the display from Chambers.

“Ashley came in because Kyle Vassell and Jamie Cureton had played the previous game and playing twice in a short space of time, people will always get an opportunity,” said Hackett.

“Ashley and Christian ran themselves into the ground and both had to come off with cramp. That’s what we want, we want everyone working to the cause. I was pleased for Ashley to get a goal and Christian too.”

Hackett was also pleased to see Daggers cheered on magnificently by 232 away fans who were in good voice throughout the game at Broadhall Way.

From the first minute, the away fans did not stop singing, even when they conceded to make the score 2-1, and Hackett was delighted to repay the travelling faithful with a win.

“The fans had something to sing about because we won,” he added. “All they want to do is see their team win. Sometimes they don’t care how we do it, a win’s a win.”
