DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE manager John Still believes his side can still challenge for the League Two play-offs after their goalless draw at Bury on Saturday.

Daggers are now four points away from seventh-placed Shrewsbury Town, who lost 3-0 to Grimsby, but have a game in hand over the Shrews.

"We've got 13 games to go, perhaps need to win six or seven games to give ourselves a chance, but performances like that will give us heart," he said.

"We never settle for a draw, we go to win, and I think that's a valuable point for us.

"We also picked up a good point in midweek at Torquay and we're delighted with that, now we've got to maximise our home games."

Although neither side could break the deadlock, it wasn't for the want of trying and Still praised his team's efforts on a difficult playing surface.

"There were two teams trying to win which was good and for us to come here against a team who are going very well shows how far we've come," he said.

"I thought we played well and a draw was a fair result. Tony's (Roberts) made a good save, but neither keeper has had too many saves and I thought that on a very difficult pitch, both sides put in a decent performance."
