George Porter thought Dagenham & Redbridge dealt with Newport County’s physical approach yesterday and felt they were unlucky to be beaten 1-0 at Victoria Road.

Wayne Burnett’s side conceded in the 90th minute to lose for a fifth time at home in the league this season.

And the Daggers winger insisted Abu Ogogo’s red card changed the game, although he couldn’t tell for sure whether it was justified or not when speaking after the match.

“The sending off, I think, changed the game,” said Porter.

“The red card came at an unfortunate time and we were pressed in the last ten minutes and they eventually got the goal.

“I was on the other side of the pitch but I think there was a coming together between Abs and the other player but I haven’t had a chance to look at the video.”

Porter was pleased with how Daggers started the game and how they combated County’s style of play.

The 22-year-old added: “I thought we started the game ok and to be fair we had a game plan to stay in the game from the start and then go on.

“Newport are not too bad, they are a very physical team but we found them out in the first half and figured out what sort of style they would play with two people up top.

“I thought we dealt with it quite well in the first half but maybe in the second it just slipped away a little bit.”

It was Porter’s first start since the 1-1 draw with Cheltenham Town last month and he was satisfied with his performance.

The winger now hopes he can remain in the team for Tuesday night’s match with Luton Town.

He added: “It was my first start in a few games but I thought I did ok in the first half and helped out defensively.

“We went into the break on the upper hand and I thought I did ok.

“I played as best as I could and it is up to the manager now (to decide if I start the next game). I will train on Monday and then see the team on Tuesday.”
