Defender on work experience loan from Charlton Athletic unhappy with 1-0 defeat

Ayo Obileye admitted it was heartbreaking to see Dagenham & Redbridge’s three-match unbeaten run come to an end at Sixfields Stadium on Saturday.

Ricky Holmes scored in the 60th minute to give Northampton Town all three points and drop Wayne Burnett’s men into the bottom two.

Obileye impressed again though and the Charlton Athletic defender was frustrated with the loss.

“We stopped the storm at the start of the game and had it 0-0 in the first half,” he said.

“But we were a bit sloppy and should have cleared the ball for the goal so losing 1-0 is heartbreaking.

“It was good to see off the early storm. Northampton were big and strong but we held firm and that is what we have to do.

“To lose the game is very disappointing. We had a couple of chances and we should have taken them, but that happens sometimes in football.”

Obileye, alongside fellow central defender Scott Doe, was up against two of Cobblers most influential players in Marc Richards and John-Joe O’Toole.

Both were threats throughout, but the Daggers duo performed well and restricted them from getting too many opportunities.

“They tried to play a bit smart, but we knew their game plan and what they were trying to do,” responded Obileye when asked about dealing with Richards and O’Toole.

“They were big and strong and trying to go up for the headers and backing in to us and they had their arms up.

“We did well against them – they didn’t really do much and didn’t score. I would say we had them in our pocket.

“But we lost the game and we needed to win and keep a clean sheet so it is disappointing.”
