DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE manager John Still was delighted with his side's hard-fought point at AFC Bournemouth last night.

Although Daggers dropped down to fourth in the table as a result of Rotherham's 2-0 win over Lincoln City, Still felt his side were worthy of a draw and might even have snatched victory.

"It was a tough game, conditions were difficult for both teams and it was probably an even contest," said the boss, who was without Mark Arber, Stuart Thurgood and Josh Scott.

"I thought we might have had the better chances, especially in the second half, but it was a good, strong performance.

"I was really pleased as we've got some of our big hitters out at the moment. It has tested our squad, but that is two away games without conceding a goal now."

New signing Darren Currie came in for his first start, and Still reserved praise for the winger, along with defender Scott Doe, who is revelling in his preferred position at centre-half.

"Darren had his first game for us and looked like he has been playing all season," said the manager.

"He had that little bit of quality, but I don't think he is as fit as he can be yet either, as he hasn't had much football recently.

"We defended ever so well too. Mark Arber has been out for a couple of games, Will Antwi missed a game, but Scott Doe has come in and been absolutely outstanding for us."
