On-loan Dagenham & Redbridge defender says players upset to lose against Yeovil after giving it their all

Dom Hyam was left frustrated after Dagenham & Redbridge slumped to a fifth straight defeat in League Two against fellow strugglers Yeovil Town.

Hopes had been high before the game that Daggers could finally get that elusive first home win this season against a Glovers side who were on a four-game winless run ahead of their trip to Victoria Road.

With both sides knowing how crucial the match could be to their survival hopes, it was unsurprising that their was little goalmouth action during the first half.

But just five minutes after the interval, Daggers fell behind to a goal from Brandon Goodship and the hosts were unable to find a route back into the game.

The result means Daggers remain rooted to the foot of the table and Hyam, who is currently on loan from Championship side Reading, says the defeat was all the more difficult to take because the players had given it their all.

“The gaffer said after the game that we had put 100 per cent into it, but that’s not really enough when we’re down there,” said Hyam.

“The boss said he’d rather we’d get the three points than work hard and not get much. Three points need to come sooner rather than later.”

Hyam has been an ever-present in the Daggers starting XI since joining on a one-month loan last month, playing the full 90 minutes in each of the five games since then.

Alongside him at the back has been fellow loanee Joe Worrall, with the pair having a combined age of 39 and just 12 games between them in the Footall League.

With the current plight Daggers are in, it has been suggested that an old head may help the youngsters develop, but Hyam believes he has struck up a good partnership with Worrall.

“It is good to have an experienced head around, but Joe and I are both in the same boat,” he added. “We can just talk and guide each other through the game because we’re in a similar situation and know what it’s like. We enjoy play with each other.”
