Defender in thick of action at Oxford

Daggers defender Scott Doe was at the heart of three penalty incidents during the 3-3 draw at Oxford.

Doe was adjudged to have fouled Alex Jakubiak and saw Danny Hylton convert from the spot to put the hosts in front.

But two other decisions went his way, as Oxford claims for handball were ignored by referee Gary Sutton.

Doe said: “The first one hit my arm, which was down by my side, and the second one hit my shoulder.

“But then I don’t think the penalty that was given was a penalty. They even themselves out.

“All I can think is he has given it for a pull. The guy has gone to lean on me, thinking I’ll make a tackle, but I just let him go and he leant on nothing and fell on thin air.

“Everyone was saying it wasn’t a penalty.”

Doe had prevented a certain goal in the first half, with a last-ditch block to thwart Hylton, who posed a threat to Daggers all afternoon.

And he admitted to thinking about the Capital One Cup tie with Brentford, that ended in that memorable 6-6 draw, as the goals flew in.

He added: “(Alfie) Potter pulled it back and I just threw myself at the ball. Luckily it hit me and spun wide. Hylton couldn’t believe it.

“He was their best player by a long way. He had a very good game, but we said before we had to respect Oxford.

“It started to feel a bit like Brentford. That was a freak game. Today was frustrating. Goals could’ve been avoided, I think there was a shove in the box before Hylton’s header.”

Daggers got some reward thanks to a stunning strike from captain Abu Ogogo and Doe felt it was a fair reflection on the game.

And despite being frustrated by conceding there goals, he focused on the positives, saying: “Conceding three is disappointing. The main aim was to win, but the positive is we haven’t lost and have kept our run going.

“It was a great strike from Abu. Like Alex Revell’s for Rotherham against Orient at Wembley.

“The least we deserved was a draw. We played some great football and Oxford are in a false position as they’ve got some good players.

“Teams do their homework. We’re trying to play more and it’s working well. Oxford is a big pitch and they were pushing and not letting us pass.”
