MANAGER John Still was a relieved man that Paul Benson was in his starting line-up rather than opponents Shrewsbury after the striker netted four times in Tuesday night's rout.
Benson turned down a move the Shrews during the summer and signed a long-term deal at Victoria Road, before leading Daggers to a thumping 5-0 triumph in midweek.
"I'm glad he wasn't (in their line-up)," said Still.
"He's s top, top player as we know, and not just a top player in terms of scoring goals, his movement, control, he brings other people into the game, he is fantastic."

"We played really well and I thought our attacking play was absolutely outstanding," said Still.

"Of course, Shrewsbury have caught us on a good night, they're a good side, and I wouldn't want to try and put them down.
"But it was our night and we produced a terrific attacking performance. We attacked from the full backs as well and one of the hardest things has been gelling all the new players, but it's going alright at the moment."
