DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE midfielder Danny Spiller felt his side had to try and take any positives they could from Monday's 2-0 defeat to lowly Cheltenham Town.

Goals from Justin Richards and Josh Low either side of half time saw Daggers slump to their second defeat of the festive period, and Spiller was quick to admit they had lost to the better side.

"They had one playing in the hole which disjointed us a little bit, but they came here and did well," he said.

"(Julian) Alsop was a handful. They worked to their strengths, they came out and weren't settling for 1-0, they wanted to push on and they pushed us all the way.

"We've got to take whatever positives that came out of the game, a little bit of fitness and just realise that we've got to work hard in training and try to do things right when we come to the next match day."

Spiller was also keen to play down the importance of an absence of Daggers traditional post-match huddle on the pitch, with manager John Still preferring to debrief his team in the changing rooms.

"The weather conditions were cold out there, we had a team huddle, nothing ever changes there," he said.

"We've got a great camaraderie about the side and that won't change. We went in, had a chat and basically come back out for the warm down.

"We're just going to stick together, everyone has a dip and we want to crack on for the next game now."
