DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE defender Anwar Uddin finally made his first appearance of the season during Saturday's 3-1 win over Macclesfield Town.

The 28-year-old club captain was a last-minute substitute for Scott Doe at the weekend, making his first outing in Daggers colours since the 2-1 defeat at Gillingham on April 13, 2009.

Uddin has now played 209 games for the club and manager John Still was quick to pay tribute to the long-serving defender.

"I always had the thought between now and the end of the season with Will (Antwi) being injured, that Anny's fit now.

"If anyone gets injured tomorrow and he has to play next week, I just wanted to give him a little bit of atmosphere if it was possible, and it was possible, so I'm delighted."
