It’s been a good, but frustrating season for Daggers, insists defender Doe

The season may be ending on a disappointing note for Dagenham & Redbridge, but many would have taken the position Daggers find themselves in going into the final week of the campaign.

And although there have been some highs and lows for defender Scott Doe, including the sending off against Wycombe Wanderers back on April 5, it’s a season where he feels he has been back to somewhere near his best.

“On the whole it’s been a good season, there have been ups and downs, but it has been a good season, though it’s a little bit of a disappointing end now,” said Doe.

“If we can win at Cheltenham then we can try to forget about this game and we end on a win and a top-half finish.

“That would have been a good season, considering how young our squad is.

“My sending off was disappointing on more than one level because I feel I have had a good season and back to playing my best.

“It was disappointing to miss three games, and vital ones at that.”

Doe very rarely reacts in the way he did against Wycombe, and he admits there’s no excuse for reacting the way he did, though he did feel provoked by a headbutt at the time.

“It was heat of the moment, I am not going to say it was right, because it wasn’t right what I did, but then again I have never been headbutted on a pitch,” he remarked.

“I shouldn’t react like that but I could never say how I was going to react because I have never been headbutted like that and it was literally heat of the moment.

“It is one of those things, I will learn from it. I am 25 and I am still learning myself and it won’t happen again. I’ll try and hopefully not get in that situation in the first place.”
