DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE manager John Still felt his side deserved a share of the spoils when they went down to a 3-1 defeat at league leaders Rochdale on Saturday.

Josh Scott had levelled for Daggers with his eighth goal of the season, cancelling out Temitope Obadeyi's strike, only for Gary Jones and Chris O'Grady to seal the victory in the final seven minute.

Although the boss was absent from Spotland he has since watched the DVD back twice and was pleased with what he saw.

"The midfield battled really well and the front two was lively, but I was disappointed with the second goal we conceded.

"I thought Tony (Roberts) could have done better, and I'll have a word with him about it. On the DVD it can look different, he might have been unsighted with the bodies in front of him, but from 25 yards out, you usually encourage players to shoot from there as they don't often go in."
