ASSISTANT manager Terry Harris couldn't put his finger on what went wrong as Daggers crashed to a demoralising 3-0 loss against Lincoln City on Tuesday night, writes MIKE SIMMONDS.
Goals from Aaron Green, Anthony Elding and Janos Kovacs condemned the Daggers on a depressing night at Victoria Road, leaving Harris baffled by the performance.
"In the last number of weeks, we've done okay without getting the results, so we came here knowing that a good performance would keep us intact, but it just wasn't to be," he said.
"Everyone was off the boil and sometimes you can get one or two, but collectively it wasn't right. Hopefully it was just a bad day at the office, because I thought we got outcompeted, which is most unlike us."

Apart from efforts by Matt Ritchie and Ben Strevens, Daggers hardly tested opposing goalkeeper Rob Burch, as they failed to make anything from a number of corners or free-kicks.
They have now failed to score in their last three home matches, which is a problem that must be sorted according to Harris.

"Their keeper made two saves, but despite the amount of balls going into the box, we didn't have any devilment to get in there," he said.
"That's not just the front two though, it's everyone in the side. We weren't getting on the end of our chances, which is again unlike us as we were the league's leading scorers at one point."
Jamie Guy made his debut as a second half substitute after joining on loan from Colchester, but fellow new signing, Scott Doe is considered as one for the future, and didn't make the squad.
Harris added: "Jamie is a very good player and we have known about him for a long time.
"He'll give us an added strength as will Scott Doe. He's a very good centre half and will come on board now and get to know the lads during the week."
Daggers are back at Victoria Road on Saturday when they host Morecambe, while they also face a lengthy trip to Port Vale on Tuesday night.
